ARDS EDGE OUT COMRADES

Benny Igiehon grabbed the only goal of the game as Ards defeated Ballyclare Comrades in a Friday night fixture at Dixon Park.

The visitors might have moved in front midway through the first half when Daniel Reynolds did well to send a cross over from the right but Ryan Arthur was on hand to turn the ball over as Igiehon looked poised to pounce.

Ross Arthurs then found himself through on goal a short time later but Comrades keeper Richard Purcell did well to deal with the danger.

But the deadlock was broken on 37 minutes when Arthurs knocked the ball on into the area with an overhead kick for Igiehon to touch past Purcell under pressure from Adam McCart.

Igiehon might have added a second after the break but he couldn't bring the ball under control in front of goal after Eamon Scannell had crossed from Christopher Crane's punt forward.

Ards were denied a second later in the game when Purcell was called into action to make a double save to keep out substitute Jay Boyd and then Scannell while Ballyclare applied some pressure in the closing stages but couldn't do enough to force an equaliser.
