ANNAGH AND WELDERS BATTLE TO A POINT APIECE
Annagh United and HW Welders shared the spoils in one of just two Lough 41 Championship games to beat the Saturday weather.
With both sides two of four locked in an almost inseparable tussle for a likely play-off spot this was the chance to steal something of a march on the other but, in the end, they had to settle for a goal apiece.
The Welders moved into the lead in first half stoppage time when the unfortunate Jordan Campbell turned the ball into his own net whilst attempting to defend a set piece.
But Annagh hit back to level just before the hour through Adam Carroll who even things up following a swift attacking move and finish under keeper Ben McCauley.
McCauley had to leave the pitch a short time later after sustaining an injury and was replaced between the sticks by defender Scott McMillan but Annagh failed to take advantage.
Indeed, the home side ended the game with ten men following Ryan Harpur's late dismissal for a poor challenge although they almost snatched victory in the closing moments when Peter Duffin poked the ball wide from Lee Upton's flick.
