SALLEY HITS HAT-TRICK AS ARDS WIN
Adam Salley laid claim to the match ball with a hat-trick as Ards won away at Knockbreda.
Salley opened the scoring just before the break after taking down a long ball played over the top and firing past Jonah Nicholl.
He doubled up eight minutes into the second half after pouncing on the rebound after an initial effort had been saved.
Eamon Scannell then further extended Ards' advantage on the hour before, with two minutes to go, Anto Burns pulled one back for 'Breda. However Salley popped up in stoppage time to clock up his hat-trick.
