ARDS HOLD ON FOR THE WIN
Ards withstood a late Newington push to claim the win at Clandeboye Park.
Paddy Cafolla opened the scoring for Matthew Tipton's side on 11 minutes with an effort from just outside the box.
Then, on 37 minutes, Ross Hunter made it 2-0 with a header for his sixth goal of the season.
That was how it stayed until the closing few minutes when Michael Morgan pulled one back for the Swans before, deep into stoppage time, Gary Warwick was dramatically denied from the spot by Ards keeper Alex Moore.
