Newry City remain the only side with a perfect record after five rounds of Lough 41 Championship action after a weekend which also produced victories for Ballyclare Comrades, Knockbreda, Dergview, Institute and Ballinamallard United.
 
Darren Mullen's side defeated Ards in a top of the table clash on Friday night, with Darren King and Mark Kelly scoring within three minutes of each other midway through the second half after Ross Arthurs had given Ards an early lead.
 
Also on Friday, Ballyclare Comrades returned to winning ways thanks to a narrow defeat of HW Welders at Dixon Park courtesy of Liam McKenna's late winner.
 
Moving onto Saturday, it was a big day for Institute who finally got their first points on board after an evening kick-off defeat of Loughgall at Lakeview Park. Winning 2-0, 'Stute's goals came after the break through Aidan McCauley and Brendan McLaughlin.
 
Earlier in the afternoon BJ Banda bagged a hat-trick as Ballinamallard United travelled to defeat Annagh United 4-2. Niall Grace also got on the scoresheet for the Mallards while Peter Duffin and Ruairi McDonald found the net for the home side.
 
Dergview also picked up three points on the road, a 2-1 win away to Dundela. Matthew Kirk opened the scoring for the visitors before William Faulkner levelled for the Duns a few minutes later. However, Benny Igiehon struck for Dergview with around a quarter-of-an-hour remaining to ensure the points travelled back to Castlederg.
 
Meanwhile, Knockbreda picked up their first home win of the season with a 3-1 defeat of Queen's University. Lee McGreevy, Ethan Devine and Ross McCaughan all got on the scoresheet for 'Breda with Matt McManus turning home a consolation for the Students.
