Ballinamallard 1-2 Carrick Rangers

It was the clash of last years two relegated Premier League teams at Ferney Park and it was Carrick who prevailed. The visitors hit the front on 24 minutes when Michael Smith tapped in front close range after John Connolly had initially saved Martin Murray's shot. Smith should have scored again 2 minutes later when he rounded goalkeeper Connolly but Ryan O'Reilly was back in time to clear off the line. On the stroke of half time it was the tale of two incidents. First Ross Taheny appealed for a penalty having been brought to the ground going for a header and then Rangers went up the other end and netted a second through Smith. The Mallards changed formation for the second half and spent the

U13s win BKYL Summer Cup

The U-13 BKYL Cup final was contested at Youth Sport Omagh last night and in an entertaining game the Mallards prevailed to lift the cup with goals from James Taylor and Harvey Thompson. Alfie Coulter stepped into goals at short notice for Ballinamallard to replace Jamie Keys who was unfortunate to miss out through illness and showed his versatility with a good performance. In the opening exchanges both teams started well but were restricted to long range efforts which didn't trouble either keeper. Gradually however Ballinamallard became the more settled moving the ball well but again without getting into positions to really threaten. A number of long range efforts were dealt with comfortabl

Ballinamallard 0-1 Knockbreda

It was another afternoon of frustration for Harry McConkey's troops against a resilient, physical and determined Knockbreda. The home side tried to play their normal passing game but were thwarted at every opportunity with goalkeeper Smyth rarely tested. Zach Barr netted the only goal of the match on 78 minutes. He and goalkeeper John Connolly, who also had a quiet afternoon, raced towards a through ball with both going to ground. Connolly seemed to have the ball but Barr swiped his leg, made contact with the ball and it trickled over the line - a very scrappy goal. The home side had numerous corners before full time, but they simply couldn't get past a resolute Breda.

Ballyclare 2-0 Ballinamallard

Another reminder tonight of just how tough the Bluefin Sport Championship will be this season. Thomas Robinson gave the home side the lead on 22 minutes shooting through a crowded penalty area but Ryan Campbell almost equalised a minute later only to be denied by the post. Both sides were playing a competitive game and John Connolly had to be alert for Ballinamallard to deny the Comrades a second as half time approached. Unfortunately on the stroke of half time Jason Johnston headed in a corner to give a 2-0 lead at the break. Ballyclare did hit the post in the second half which was relatively quiet in terms of action, with the Mallards unable to force themselves back into the game. The home

Ballinamallard 1-2 Portadown

"Daylight robbery" is how Ports boss Matthew Tipton described his sides win at Ferney Park today. Having battled all the way, and fully deserving of a point if not more, the Mallards were dealt the cruelest of blows with Kevin Branniff striking a 95th minute winner. Ryan Campbell was the first to go closest, hitting the post after 5 minutes, but 2 minutes later Portadown took the lead in the game when Jamie Douglas nipped in to capitalise after the Mallards failed to clear a cross. The post came to the reds rescue again with Chris Kelly crashing a shot off the left upright before Ben McCann spurned a great opportunity before half time when his header landed ontop of the goal net. Salley and
