SALLEY DOUBLE EARNS TEN-MAN ARDS A POINT
Adam Salley struck twice as ten-man Ards earned a point from the visit of Ballyclare Comrades to Clandeboye Park.
He slid the ball home on 13 minutes to open the scoring for Matthew Tipton's side, but Caomhan McGuinness levelled for the visitors just before the half-hour mark with an effort in off the underside of the bar.
Ards were reduced to ten men soon after when TJ Murray received his second caution of the game, but they recovered to regain the lead just before the break through a Greg Hall header.
Ballyclare levelled for a second time on the hour when Gary Donnelly scored direct from a corner.
However, Ards moved in front once more a few minutes later when Salley converted from the spot for his second of the game ... but the scoring wasn't finished then as Donnelly also bagged his brace with a 25-yard effort beyond Alex Moore.
