'STUTE EDGE OUT COMRADES

Institute squeezed to a narrow defeat of Ballyclare Comrades at the Brandywell.

Although scoreless at the break both sides had their chances to find a way through in the first half.

For 'Stute Michael Harris threatened with an effort from outside the box before, a little later, taking the ball past keeper Declan Breen only to fire into the side netting.

At the other end Michael Morgan blasted over from ten yards with Calvin McCurry then being denied one-on-one by the feet of keeper Gareth Muldoon.

It eventually fell to 'Stute to find a way through on the hour when, from Fionn McClure's well delivered free-kick Shaun Leppard nodded home at the back post under pressure from Howard Beverland.

Institute were reduced to ten men not long after that when Evan Tweed collected his second yellow of the game but they held on to secure the points despite the Comrades having a stoppage time leveller ruled out for handball.
