Ballynahinch outscored Ards by five tries to nil as they recorded their first win of the season following a draw on the opening day.
New Kiwi import Ryan Banbury had an impressive debut for the Ballymacarn Park side converting all five scores and club spokesman John Dickson believes the outhalf from Dunedin could spearhead a promotion push this season.
“Last season we were missing a kicker and that probably cost us three or four All Ireland League games and already you can see the impact Ryan has made,” said Dickson.
“We’re very happy with the result and the way we played, we’re trying to play the same style as last year and Willie Faloon coming back was a boost for us.
“We face Ballymena next week and that will be a big test.”
