Warrenpoint lose to Ballymena

  • Warrenpoint 1-3 Ballymena

Warrenpoint took the early advantage against visiting Ballymena, when Martin Murray scored just 25 seconds into the match, beating goalkeeper Conor Brennan.

Ballymena levelled up soon after though, Cathair Friel netting following a corner.

And in the second half the visitors went ahead, Emmet Friars scoring for the second successive Saturday, rising highest to head home at the back post to make it 2-1 to David Jeffrey's men.

Friel then poked the ball home from a Kevin Braniff left-wing cross for his second of the game after 79 minutes - a fine volley from the former Limavady attacker.

It ended Warrenpoint 1-3 Ballymena.
