Intermediate Roundup

This weekend saw a massively reduced set of fixtures thanks to the after effects of Storm Gareth, but the six games that did go ahead served up an average of three goals so plenty of action to get our teeth into.

We start in the NAFL, where league leaders Immaculata stretched their advantage over reigning Champions Crumlin Star to 12 points thanks to a 3-2 win at home to Ards Rangers. Star may be trailing but they now have 9 games in hand on their rivals as we enter the home straight. Elsewhere, Islandmagee secured full points with a 2-0 win over Drumaness Mills at Wilbourne Park to open up a six point lead on their opponents.

The Ballymena League saw the bulk of the weekend’s action, and again the league leaders extended their lead at the top of the table. Glebe travelled to Antrim to face Chimney Corner at Allen Park, and they battled to a 3-1 victory. Lee Gault, Peter Kennoway and an OG settled the game in the champions’ favour, moving them nine points ahead of Bangor, having played five games more.

Coagh United remain in fourth place, following their 1-0 win at Hagan Park over Brantwood. Stefan Hogshaw netting just after half-time to settle a tight game. Dunloy travelled to Wakehurst and secured an important 2-1 win to leapfrog their opponents in the table. Zac McConnell opened the scoring for the visitors, while Andy Loughlin equalised just after half-time before John John McFerran netted the winner to settle the game.

At the foot of the table, Ballynure OB scored an important victory against the bottom side Cookstown RBL, easing to a 4-0 win thanks to goals from Kyle Abernethy, Cameron McAuley (2) and Chris McIlwaine.
