FIRST HALF GOALS SHARED AT DIXON PARK
Ballyclare Comrades and Queen's University battled to a 1-1 draw at Dixon Park with both goals coming in the first half.
The home side came close to breaking the deadlock early on when an Ian Fletcher free-kick was headed against the crossbar by a visiting defender before, from the follow up, Michael Smith also directed his header against the woodwork.
But Ballyclare did find a way through on 14 minutes courtesy of Kyle Beggs' cross-cum-shot which bypassed everyone to end up in the net.
However the Students levelled just before the half-hour mark through Leon Bonnes after he got his head to a corner while, on the stroke of half-time, Fletcher was on hand to clear the ball off the line.
The second half was a much less lively affair with neither side able to settle nor grab what could well have been the winner.
