Round 17 of Lough 41 Championship fixtures resulted in victories for Newry City, Dergview, Ballinamallard United, Annagh United and Loughgall.

Leaders Newry are six points clear at the top following a 2-0 win away to Knockbreda. Darren Mullen's side were reduced to ten men after 19 minutes following Ryan McGivern's dismissal but responded positively to lead at the break through James Teelan before, midway through the second half, Mark Kelly added another to make sure of the victory.

Loughgall moved into second spot courtesy of a 2-0 win on the road over Institute. Nedas Maciulaitis opened the scoring at the end of the first half with Mark Patton doubling the Villagers' lead late in the game.

Dergview kicked the weekend off on Friday night with a 2-1 win over Ards at Clandeboye Park. Patrick Loughery fired the visitors in front with just under a quarter-of-an-hour on the clock but Thomas Murray levelled midway through the first half. Three red cards were issued in the second half before Niall McGinley secured the points for Dergview with a couple of minutes to go.

Annagh United twice came from behind at the Blanchflower Stadium to defeat HW Welders by the odd goal in five. Alan McMurtry scored twice for the Welders in the first half, either side of a Stephen Murray strike, but Lee Upton and Craig Taylor found the net after the break to tip the balance in favour of the visitors.

Ryan Morris bagged the only goal of the game at Ferney Park as Ballinamallard United beat Ballyclare Comrades while the bottom two clubs, Queen's University and Dundela, battled to a scoreless draw at The Dub.
