Ballyclare Comrades.............3 Limavady United............1

A STIRRING second half fight back almost saw United claim a merited point away at the league leaders but there is still no away win for Paul Owens' men.
Even if there was much to admire in the Roesiders' performance, there comes a time when the players have to get the job done if they are to be challenging in this league.
If that seems a bold claim to make then any objective observer at Dixon Park on Saturday would have seen very little between the sides.
Comrades started like they meant business and United were penned back in their box for the first few minutes.
A second minute corner was punched by Wells straight to Brown on the edge of the box who volleyed over.
Another good move from the hosts ended in a cross being whipped in from the right to be met by Johnston who headed wide from close range.
United rode the storm and had a chance after ten minutes when a corner was not cleared at the near post and when the ball was crossed back into the danger area, Devlin was first to the ball in the six yard box but his effort was blocked.
