Loughgall's late leveller makes life interesting at basement

 

By Stuart McKinley

A priceless point away to Loughgall has given Limavady United hope they can avoid automatic relegation from the Bluefin Sport Championship next Saturday, the final day of the season.

The Roesiders could have really turned up the heat at the foot of the table when, leading 1-0 from an early Alex Pomeroy penalty, Sean Friars' men missed the chance to move level with PSNI when they conceded an Andrew Hoey goal five minutes from time.

They must now beat Knockbreda on Saturday, while the Police face Ballyclare Comrades knowing that they must equal or better Limavady to give themselves a hope of styaying up.

Knockbreda are safe after two goals from David Fearon gave them a 2-1 over Ballyclare, while champions Larne ensured they finished the season unbeaten at home when they beat H&W Welders 2-1 at Inver Park.

Elsewhere, Carrick Rangers and Portadown warmed up for their play-off clash with victories.

Lukasz Adamczyk netted Carrick's winner to seal a comeback victory over Dundela after Stewart Nixon had cancelled out Owain Beggs' opener, while Portadown scored late in each half to beat Ballinamallard United 2-1 at Shamrock Park.

Queen's University will, meanwhile, be playing in the Championship next season after they won the Premier Intermediate League title with a 5-0 victory over Tobermore United.

RESULTS: Dundela 1 Carrick Rangers 2; Knockbreda 2 Ballyclare Comrades 1; Larne 2 H&W Welders 1; Loughgall 1 Limavady United 1; Portadown 2 Ballinamallard United 1; PSNI 0 Dergview 3.
