Tandragee Rovers lead the table after they beat Ballymacash 4-2 with Lower Maze clinging on to second place.

There were points for other teams near the bottom of the table as AFC Craigavon drew with Camlough Rovers and Markethill Swifts picked up a point at Crewe United.

In the B Division, Valley Rangers scored 12 without reply at Banbridge AFC to move within a point of leaders Newry City, who were involved in Cup action. St Marys take third place after a hard-earned 2-1 win at home to Hanover.

In the only Division 1 match to take place, Ballyoran earned their first league points of the season as they went to Dungannon Rovers and won 4-0.
