Ballinamallard 4-1 Carrick

Ballinamallard ended the 2016/17 season on a high with their tenth victory of the season. The opening goal came early in the game when Daniel Larmour fouled Gary Armstrong, and Ryan Mayse dispatched the penalty. Mayse added a second with a fine finish after collecting an Owens cross, as he hunted down Adam Lecky for the leading goalscorer award. Carrick replied with a Daniel Kelly header but the advantage was restored before half time with Ryan Curran scoring. Ryan Morris headed in a fourth whilst Mayse went close to adding another whilst Carrick hit the bar through Kyle McVey.
