SPOILS SHARED AT THE BRANDYWELL
Institute and Ards battled to a share of the spoils at the Brandywell.
Both goals came midway through the first half, with 'Stute moving in front on 34 minutes when Calvin McCallion - following his recent switch from Dergview - made the most of a mistake by keeper Alex Moore to open the scoring.
However, it proved to be a short lived lead after, barely three minutes later, Patrick Cafolla levelled for Ards with a well placed header.
