Glenavon took the lead on the stroke of half-time when Jenkins slotted home from close range after the Ballymena defence failed to clear the danger.

Jenkins scored his second of the game seven minutes after the restart when he rifled home a superb half volley from six yards.

Greg Moorhouse secured the victory for the Lurgan Blues with seven minutes remaining.
