Ards 1-3 Glentoran
Glentoran's bid to break into the top six received a boost on Friday night thanks to a 3-1 win over Ards at the Bangor Fuels Arena.
Two goals from Stephen O'Flynn helped give manager Gary Haveron back-to-back league wins to move the Glens to within a point of seventh placed Dungannon Swifts.
After missing an early chance, O'Flynn made the breakthrough on 12 minutes with a well placed shot which beat Ards keeper Aaron Hogg.
Seven minutes later and O'Flynn struck again to put the visitors in command as he nodded in a cross from Ross Redman.
Ards found a way back on 34 minutes thanks to a bit of good fortune as a cross from Kevin Bradley ended up in the Glentoran net.
There was little between the sides in the second half, Ards pressed for an equaliser while the Glens tried to add a decisive third goal and it finally came near the end when Curtis Allen was on hand to latch onto the loose ball after Hogg had spilled a shot from Aaron Harmon.
Full time and goals from Stephen O'Flynn (2) and Curtis Allen give Glentoran a 3-1 win. Kevin Bradley scored for Ards.
A hat-trick from James Desmarais helped the Belfast Giants to a 5-4 win over the Nottingham Panthers, despite a late push by the visitors.Read the full story ›
