'STUTE MAKE IT TWO IN A ROW
A goal at either end of the game handed Institute the points from Ballyclare Comrades' visit to the Brandywell.
Shaun Leppard opened the scoring for 'Stute as early as the ninth minute, with the home side thinking they had doubled their advantage soon after when Cathair Friel found the net only for it to be ruled out offside.
Friel came close again early in the second half only to hit the post from a header before, five minutes from time, he did get on the scoresheet with a slotted finish below visiting keeper Declan Breen.
