Ards, Institute and Dundela all won on the road as there proved to be little home comfort to be found from the latest round of Lough 41 Championship games.
Dundela inflicted a rare defeat on Lough 41 Championship leaders Loughgall at Lakeview Park to reduce the gap at the top a little.
The Villagers still hold a seven point advantage but fell to an early Eamon Fyfe goal as the Duns gained revenge for Tuesday night’s loss to the same opponents.
That moves Paul Harbinson’s side level on points with second placed Annagh United following their draw with Warrenpoint Town at the BMG Arena.
Ruairi McDonald had opened the scoring midway through the first half with a chip over the keeper but ‘Point fought back to level with around a quarter-of-an-hour remaining through Luke Walsh’s header.
Ards went goal crazy in the second half as they ran out 5-2 winners away to HW Welders.
The Welders had led at the break courtesy of a Callum Byers header, but the visitors roared back with an Eamon Scannell hat-trick and further goals from Adam Salley and Ross Hunter.
Institute also got amongst the goals. After hitting eight during the week, ‘Stute were back at it again with a 4-1 defeat of Newington at Solitude.
A Ronan McAleer cross deflected off the unfortunate Aodhfionn Casey early on before Andrew Whiteside added a second soon after. Jamie Dunne then struck from the spot towards the end of the first half and whilst Casey pulled one back just after the hour Dunne doubled his tally late in the game to complete this scoring.
Elsewhere John Edgar got a second half equaliser for Ballinamallard United to cancel out Gary Donnelly’s early opener for Ballyclare Comrades at Ferney Park.
And goals either side of the interval told the scoring of Dergview and Knockbreda’s 1-1 draw at Darragh Park. Tamer Atrach had edged ‘Breda in front towards the end of the first half but Bobby Deane levelled with a header a few minutes into the second half.
In the only Lough 41 Premier Intermediate League game played Tobermore United came from behind to defeat Limavady United at The Showgrounds.
Alex Pomeroy had fired the Roesiders in front very early in proceedings but Declan Martin and then Tiarnan Rafferty from the spot ensured the points left with the visitors.
