REYNOLDS HAT-TRICK AS ARDS BAG FIVE
Daniel Reynolds bagged a hat-trick as Ards swept past Knockbreda at Clandeboye Park.
The 22-year-old opened the scoring after just nine minutes before doubling up from the spot after half-an-hour.
'Breda pulled one back on 39 minutes when Anthony Burns sent a lob over Brian Neeson but Salou Jallow was on hand to restore Ards' two-goal cushion just before the break.
Reynolds then grabbed his hat-trick goal on 50 minutes but back came 'Breda again when Craig Gardiner clawed another goal back.
However, the scoring was completed with a quarter-of-an-hour remaining when Benny Igiehon found the net to round off a good afternoon for Ards.
