H&W Welders...............3 Limavady United...............2

LIMAVADY United's away day woes continued on Saturday at Tilleysburn, as they lost a game which they had controlled completely until the final five minutes. Earlier, United had produced their best football of the season, and should have been out of sight by half time.
United started brightly, and had a third minute chance, when Logue and Hume combined inside the box, but their only reward was a corner. Owens hoisted a perfect kick into the six yard box and Crown rose like a salmon but headed over the bar.
Owens, celebrating his 35th birthday, had a good chance on 6 minutes, shooting just wide after excellent build up play.
Four minutes later Gillan played a great cross field ball to Logue, but he shot narrowly wide, as United eased smoothly through the gears.
The Welders only response was an 18th minute effort by Harris which Wells stood and watched go well wide.
The opening goal came on 26 minutes, and it was the hugely impressive Logue who got it, just beating Gillan to Owens' smart pass to volley home from just inside the box.
They held the lead for four minutes, when the usually reliable McFadden gave the ball away to Boyd in front of goal, and he snapped up the gift, slipping the ball past Wells who could do nothing.
