WELDERS EDGE BLANCHFLOWER THRILLER
HW Welders defeated Ballyclare Comrades 4-2 after an entertaining encounter at the Blanchflower Stadium.
Darius Roohi edged the visitors in front on 12 minutes but the Welders levelled midway through the first half courtesy of a Matthew Ferguson header.
The Welders moved in front after half-an-hour when Ronan Wilson’s cross from the right drifted into the top corner but just four minutes after that Roohi hit his second of the day, this time from the spot.
Lewis Patterson restored home advantage just before the break, with James McClay hitting a fourth late in the game.
