HONOURS EVEN AT SOLITUDE
Newington and Ballyclare Comrades battled to an equal share of the points and goals at Solitude.
The Swans moved in front after 13 minutes with a confident finish after collecting a pass into the box.
Darius Roohi levelled for Ballyclare three minutes from the break with a header from Cillin Gilmour's cross before, right at the end of the half, Conall McGrandles nodded the visitors in front at the near post after Paul Donnelly had sent over a corner.
But it ended honours even when, on 73 minutes, Eamonn Hughes converted from the spot for Newington.
