ONE GOAL PROVES ENOUGH FOR THE SWIFTS

A DARREN Boyce strike proved the difference between Dungannon Swifts and Ards at Stangmore Park.

Ryan Harpur came close as early as the third minute from a free-kick which was turned away for a corner and this was followed by a David McCullough header wide.

Boyce grabbed what proved to be the only goal for the Swifts after 16 minutes after he cut inside to smash a left-foot drive past Graeme McKibbin from a move started by Fra Brennan.

Unfortunately the game failed to live up to this early promise with the next real effort of note not coming until the 53rd minute when David Gibson might have levelled for Ards only to send a free header over the bar.

Then, in stoppage time, Paul McDowell came close with a glancing header as Ards almost snatched a share of the spoils.
