Irish League Round Up: Ten-man Glenavon deny Coleraine while Blues and Crues enjoy big wins

Ards 2-4 Crusaders; Ballinamallard 0-6 Linfield; Cliftonville 3-0 Carrick; Warrenpoint 1-2 Dungannon; Glenavon 2-2 Coleraine

By Gareth Hanna

Coleraine dropped points for only the second time this season while Linfield hit six despite going down to ten men during the first half on another action packed Irish League afternoon.

Glenavon 2-2 Coleraine

A Sammy Clingan penalty denied the league leaders, who had led twice against a Glenavon side playing with ten men for most of the game.

Coleraine took the lead when an Aaron Traynor header went right through to star striker Jamie McGonigle, who tucked in a finish to punish a flat-footed defence.

When Josh Carson's knife-like through ball set Ian Parkhill clear, James Singleton hauled him down and a red card was Raymond Crangle's only option. That, however, did Glenavon no harm in the short-term as they entered their best phase of the half.

They got their rewards when the classy Mark Sykes dashed through the Coleraine defence and finished every bit as well as McGonigle.

Carson restored the advantage when he curled home a superb 20 yard effort on 52 but it was level again on 78. Chris Johns was adjudged to have fouled Andy Hall when he punched a bouncing ball clear and Sammy Clingan blasted home the spot-kick.

Ballinamallard 0-6 Linfield

Ten-man Linfield eased to a convincing victory over the league's basement side.

It was game over by the break with the Blues three ahead. Mark Haughey opened the scoring with a stooping header. Kirk Millar made it two and Andrew Waterworth followed up to finish the third after Josh Robinson's shot was saved. Robinson was then dismissed after an altercation following the goal but with the Blues three ahead, there was no need to worry.

That was underlined when Haughey's second of the day made it four. There were no signs of easing up as Jordan Stewart notched the fifth and Waterworth's second of the day made it half a dozen.

Ards 2-4 Crusaders

Crusaders kept up their chase with a win over a resurgent Ards.

Gavin Whyte opened the scoring with a header on Jordan Forsythe's free-kick. Paul Heatley made it two shortly after the restart  and Whyte followed soon after with his second of the day.

Guillaume Keke and Kyle Cherry netted two consolation goals late on to sandwich David Cushley's strike for the visitors.

Cliftonville 3-0 Carrick Rangers

A Joe Gormley double had the Reds in the driving seat by the break, taking his tally to nine league goals for the season. And the points were made safe when Daniel Hughes netted the third in the second half, his first league goal since March.

Warrenpoint Town 1-2 Dungannon Swifts

A second half comeback helped the Swifts to three points.

Alan Davidson put the struggling hosts ahead just five minutes in, hammering home after the promising Lorcan Forde played him in.

The game was turned on its head after the restart. Dungannon's Ryan Mayse levelled with a wonder-goal and an own goal gave the visitors the lead. Conor McMenamin and Stephen Moan combined to put Paul McElroy's cross into their own net.
