Mid Ulster League round-up October 12

Only Newry City prevented a whitewash of Mid Ulster Clubs in the Irish Cup, as Dollingstown lost their first match of the season to Crumlin Star.

Domestically, Ballymacash Rangers secured a point against Tandragee Rovers to keep them at the top of the A Division where they are followed by close rivals and neighbours Lower Maze who won at Lisanally Rangers. Broomhill move into third after a victory at Fivemiletown United.

In the B section there were wins for Dungannon Tigers, St Mary’s and Hanover, while Laurelvale edged out Bourneview in a seven-goal thriller.

Division 1 leaders Hill Street came back from 3-1 down to secure a point in a 3-3 draw at Lurgan Institute, but it was more gloom for Coalisland Athletic as they lost again, this time at home to Armagh Rovers.

Celtic Club inflicted a first defeat of the season on Donaghmore and closed the gap at the top of Division 2 to one point.

In Division 3, Armagh Blues surprised runaway leaders Rectory Rangers by picking up a point in a 2-2 draw while Cookstown Celtic hammered Glenanne United 7-3.

Division 4 leaders Goodyear were also held to a draw as  Lurgan Thistle secured a good point in a game of six goals. Knockmenagh Swifts remain in second while goal difference keeps Damolly United in third.
