Mid Ulster round-up, February 15

Lisanally Rangers’ pitch was the only one in the A division that survived the inspections and they took full advantage as they secured three points by beating Broomhill 3-1.

Some significant matches were also played in the B Division. Second-placed St Mary’s came a cropper at home to Oxford Sunnyside, whilst Valley Rangers moved up to third after a vital 2-1 win at Dungannon Tigers.

There were no matches possible in Divisions 1 and 2, but three of the promotion challengers were in action in Division 3. Cookstown Celtic beat Santos 2-0, but the big match saw Sandy Hill edge out rivals Rectory Rangers 4-3.

Silverwood United reached the last eight of the Junior Cup by outlasting Newcastle Reserves in a pulsating match.

Silverwood took the lead but the visitors hit back to move ahead 3-1 at the break. Silverwood scored a second and their pressure paid off when, five minutes from time, they were awarded a penalty which they duly scored to level the match.

The Lurgan side then notched the winner with seconds to go and are rewarded with a trip to Harryville Homers of Ballymena for a place in the semi-finals.
