Dungannon Swifts went goal crazy once again, smashing in six goals for the second game running.

After hammering Portadown in the Danske Bank Premiership on Saturday, Rodney McAree's men battered Ballinamallard United 6-1 in the League Cup at Stangmore Park.

Stefan Lavery (2), Jamie Glackin (2), Cormac Burke and Alan Teggart were on target as statisticians wondered when was the last time the Swifts scored six goals in back to back battles.

Carrick Rangers enjoyed a break from their Premiership woes with a 2-0 win at Armagh City. Stephen McCullough and PJ Murray got the goals.

Coach Glenn Taggart said: "We created a lot of chances and it was a good performance.

"We had seven defeats on the bounce and we needed to break that losing habit for this confidence boost."

There was no shock at the Coleraine Showgrounds where the hosts swept aside Knockbreda 3-0 with Jamie McGonigle, Jordan Allan and Brad Lyons all on target for the Bannsiders.

There was one though in Bangor as former Glentoran player John McGuigan scored an impressive hat-trick as Championship side Warrenpoint Town beat last year's beaten finalists Ards 4-2 after-extra time.
