INTERMEDIATE DIVISION

LEAGUE

FC BALLYNURE 1 RASHARKIN UNITED 1

On a very slick surface both teams were able to play lots of good passing football allowing for plenty of chances around both goals. The first goal in the game went to Rasharkin when Andy Calderwood scored on the 26th minute and at half-time this goal still separated the teams. Ballynure pushed forward in the second half getting back on level terms after Darren McKinty converted a penalty on the 73rd minute. After this both teams went for the winning goal but at full time it was appoint to each.

Referee Mr. David Appleyard

CRAWFORD CUP ROUND FOUR

CLOUGH RGRS ATH 3 BRANTWOOD 4

After a good start to the game Steven Bainbridge put Brantwood in front on the 7th minute then on the 12th minute Fintan McCartney doubled the Brantwood advantage. Clough came back into the game with Steven Holmes scoring on the 21st minute and got back level after David Nicholl scored on the 33rd minute. Half-time was almost reached when Clough got a hammer blow having a man sent off making life difficult for them. Brantwood made the extra man pay and went in front after Aidan Hanna scored on the 68th minute and a second goal from Fintan McCartney put Brantwood two goals clear on the 71st minute. Clough never gave up the chase and pulled a goal back after Ricky Hanna scored on the 87th minute but with being a man short it cost them dear at the end. Referee Mr. Paul Doherty

Killymoon the league leaders were put to the sword by Ballyclare in this game as the visitors with games in hand have their eyes on winning the division. Ballyclare took the lead after Ronnie Burns scored and then extended their lead when Jonny McClurg scored. Killymoon had to chase the game and as often happens got caught with Ronnie Burns scoring his second goal in the game sealing the win for the visitors. Referee Mr. Mark O’Neil
