Mid Ulster League round-up
Seven Mid Ulster League teams will take their place in round 2 of the Irish Cup following Saturday’s ties.
Shock of the round was at Tarsan Lane in Portadown, where a drama has turned into a full blown crisis for Tandragee Rovers and they exited the competition at the first hurdle after they were humiliated 3-0 by B Division Seagoe.
No such problems for Banbridge Rangers as they crushed Dromore Amateurs, but it was a close call for Camlough Rovers as they edged out Magherafelt Sky Blues 3-2. Dollingstown conceded three at Crewe United but scored five to ease through and elsewhere there weregood away wins for Newry City and Richhill.
In the league, AFC Craigavon beat Markethill 4-3 and in the B Division, Dungannon Tigers ended Hanover’s 100% record after a 3-1 win.
In the junior section, Silverwood United got back to winning ways as they hammered eight goals past Lurgan Institute whilst champions Coalisland Athletic had a good win at Ballyoran.
Celtic Club lead the way in Division 2 after a good 5-1 win against Portadown BBOB, while Donaghmore and Keady Celtic keep up the pressure after they both won.
Rectory Rangers are at the top of the Division 3 table with maximum points from their three matches and after a bad loss last week, The Dons took an excellent point from their Division4 match against Knockmenagh Swifts.
