BANDA GOAL ENOUGH FOR MALLARDS
BJ Banda grabbed the only goal of the game as Ballinamallard United defeated HW Welders at the Blanchflower Stadium.
He struck on 74 minutes following an assist from Josh McIlwaine, who himself struck the woodwork after just a couple of minutes had elapsed.
Banda also rattled an effort against the crossbar early in the second half while the Mallards also had the ball in the net later in the game only for it to be ruled out offside.
