Down Area Winter Football League round-up, November 7

Poor weather severely impacted on the number of games played in each division, but there were a number of key games played that impacted at the top of each division.

In the Premier Division, it was second versus third as Corrymeela entertained Moat Park Rangers, with Moat Park pulling off an excellent 4-2 win to go joint top with Greenwell Star. Vision Athletic climbed to fifth position, courtesy of a 5-1 away victory over Newtown Forest, and the final game saw a 0-0 stalemate between North Down and Ravenhill YM III.

There was one game in the Sittlington Cup, which saw a local derby between Premier Division Bangor Rangers III and Division 1's basement team Bryansburn Rangers III, so you would have expected a comfortable win for the Premier Division outfit, but a close encounter ensued, with Bangor finally securing a 4-2 win.

In Division 1, Ballygowan moved to top position following an emphatic 8-1 away win over Stranmillis 37th OB.

In Division 2A, Brentwood II overcame recent poor form to secure a 4-1 home win over Corrymeela II to maintain third position and keep the pressure on the top two, Greenwell Star II & Moat Park Rangers II. Fourth-placed Vision Athletic II secured a resounding 6-1 home win over bottom-placed Comber Star II.

In Division 2B, top team Clonduff II maintained their unbeaten start to the season with a 4-0 away win over Newtownards RBL II, and Comber YM II continued their recent good form to secure a 6-3 home win over Bangor Rangers IV, overcoming a half time 3-0 deficit in the process.

Well done to all clubs who were able to get their games on.
