It’s as you were at the top of the Lough 41 Premier Intermediate League following Tuesday night victories for Ballymacash Rangers and Bangor.

‘Cash remain a point to the good in pole position but they had to twice come from behind to defeat Dollingstown 4-2 at the Bluebell Stadium.

And remarkably all four home goals came courtesy of skipper Jordon Morrison!

Jonathan Ewart fired the Dollybirds in front on five minutes, a lead they held for half-an-hour when Morrison grabbed his first of the evening from the spot.

Daniel Gordon edged the visitors back in front just before the break, but Morrison struck again early in the second half. He then knocked home another penalty a couple of minutes after that to claim the match ball before bagging his fourth just before the hour!

Bangor also hit four goals in a comprehensive defeat of Banbridge Town at Clandeboye Park.

Jordan Hughes kicked the scoring off midway through the first half with two goals in as many minutes before the hour from Ryan Arthur and Ben Arthurs put the Seasiders very much in control. Ryley D’Sena then wrapped things up right at the end.

At Mill Meadow a couple of Tom Patchett goals gave Moyola Park the edge over Portstewart. Both came at the end of each half – his first on 43 minutes and the second deep into stoppage time –either side of Ryan Campbell’s consolation for the Seahawks.

Meanwhile, Championship leaders Annagh United stormed back from two goals down to earn a point away to Ballyclare Comrades.

Two Cillin Gilmour goals early in the second half had put the Comrades in a commanding position but when Craig Taylor pulled one back on 83 minutes it set up a grandstand finish – with Niall McGinley duly delivering the equaliser in the sixth minute of added time!
