VILLAGERS KEEP MARCHING ON
League leaders Loughgall remain three points clear and unbeaten following a four-goal victory over Ballyclare Comrades.
Scoreless at the break, Championship player of the month Nedas Maciulaitis edged the Villagers in front on the hour after he was quickest to react to the loose ball from a Nathaniel Ferris effort.
He then made it 2-0 nine minutes later after connecting with an Ally Teggart pass ... and Teggart himself got on the scoresheet after that with a deflected finish from just outside the box.
Benji Magee completed the scoring with a couple of minutes remaining just after Ryan Masterson had smashed an effort against the crossbar.
