Loughgall’s lead in the Lough 41 Championship stretched to eight points following a narrow defeat of Dundela in the top of the table clash at Wilgar Park.

Ben Murdock grabbed the only goal of the game for the Villagers on 88 minutes although it almost ended all square when, moments later, the Duns were presented with a spot-kick only for Jay Magee to see his effort saved by Berraat Turker.

Annagh United leapfrogged the Duns into second place following a 3-0 victory over Dergview at the BMG Arena.

Aaron Rogers broke the deadlock in first half stoppage time and doubled up with 12 minutes remaining before Stephen Murray completed the scoring late on.

It was a night to remember at the Brandywell – and one to forget – for Institute and Knockbreda respectively.

‘Stute romped to an eight-goal victory with Jamie McCormick and Jamie Dunne bagging two apiece while Rhys McDermott, Mark McFadden, Matthew Walker and substitute Patrick McLaughlin also found the net.

Warrenpoint Town and Ballinamallard United had to be content with a goal each at Milltown. Steven Ball had fired ‘Point in front late in the first half but Shane McGinty levelled for the Mallards from the spot on the hour.

Newington edged to victory over Ards at Clandeboye Park, a first home defeat for Matt Tipton’s side in six outings. Aodhfionn Casey fired the Swans in front in the closing moments of the first half and whilst Ross Hunter levelled for Ards midway through the second period Gary Warwick hit back with the winner almost immediately.

Meanwhile, at Dixon Park, both Ballyclare Comrades and HW Welders failed to find the net.
