It was all square across the board in the Lough 41 Championship as the three games that survived the weekend weather all ended with honours even.

Ards and Institute kicked the weekend off on Friday evening with a 1-1 draw at Clandeboye Park. Joe Tully headed Ards in front after six minutes, a lead they held until midway through the second half when Ian Parkhill levelled from the spot for 'Stute.

The games Loughgall v. Ballyclare Comrades, Newry City v. Knockbreda and Queen's University v. Dergview were all postponed on Saturday afternoon but, as per the previous evening, there was nothing in the two games that did get the green light.

There was a frantic end to proceedings at Wilgar Park as Dundela and Ballinamallard United both hit late goals. Scoreless for the majority of the game, Craig Farquhar looked to have fired the Duns to the points on 88 minutes but, two minutes into added time, the experienced Mark Stafford levelled for the Mallards.

Annagh United came from behind to salvage a point at home to HW Welders. Jordan Campbell turned the ball into his own in first half stoppage time whilst attempting to defend a free-kick, but the home side recovered to level through Adam Carroll just before the hour.
