Kane almost made it three early in the second half, but the Ballinamallard defence scrambled to block the effort, and avert the danger.

It was 3-0 soon after though as Ballymena cruised through the gears - with a delicate flicked header into the corner of the goal.

The home side pulled one back - Josh McIlwaine with the header beyond Ballymena goalkeeper Conor Brennan.
