A JOSHUA McIlwaine double helped Ballinamallard United Youth to victory over Glenavon III in the IFA Youth League Cup final at Holm Park, Armagh.
He opened the scoring on nine minutes with a low finish past 'keeper Josh Cormican.
Glenavon levelled three minutes before the break when unfortunate United defender Gareth Carrothers turned the ball into his own net.
However, John Quinn's side regained the lead on 58 minutes courtesy of a John Edgar free-kick only for Steven Gordon to head Glenavon back on level terms seven minutes later.
But with five minutes of extra-time remaining McIlwaine struck again to secure victory for the Mallards rounding off a memorable season for the club.
