Portadown 5-0 Ballinamallard

Unfortunately it's another poor day at the office for the Mallards who remain bottom of the Bluefin Sport Championship after 11 matches. Kevin Braniff netted two in the first half and completed his hat trick in the second, with Ryan Carmichael getting the other 2 before half time. We return to Ferney Park next Saturday to play H&W Welders.

Ballinamallard 4-1 Ardstraw

10 man Ballinamallard progressed into the semi finals but the scoreline wasn't as flattering as it first appears. Both sides had chances before Captain for the night, Ross Taheny, headed the hosts infront unchallenged on 14 minutes. The second arrived 10 minutes before half time with Duwayne McManus finishing off a classy counter attack involving Robb and Arkinson - a fine team goal. Joshua McIlwaine then hit the bar before David Elliott netted a third before the interval. It all seemed like plain sailing but on the stroke of half time Paul Fusco tapped in from close range to pull a goal back for the visitors and they wasted another chance after that too! The Tyrone side picked up where they

Loughgall 2-2 Ballinamallard

It's taken a while, but we finally have another point on the board! Harry McConkey's young side have showed great promise at times this season, but also frustrating basic errors which have cost them points; today was no different but with perhaps a wee touch more luck. Having seen a positive performance mid week away to Crusaders, the Mallards were keen to push on but were fortunate to be only one down within 10 minutes today. However things started to turn in their favour and just after Ryan O'Reilly had seen his header cleared off the line, Darragh McBrien went one better to equalise with his head. It was deja vu at the start of the second half however with Loughgall scoring again before a

Reserves into Round 3 of the Junior

Our Reserves progressed into Round 3 of the Fonacab Junior Cup with a hard fought win in difficult circumstances. After a scoreless first half in very wet conditions, and after an unfortunate red card, the young Mallards eventually took the lead three quarters of the way through the game. A piece of individual brilliance and creativity from Lorcan McGrady gave them a deserved lead after much pressure. With time almost up and victory in sight, a second bookable offence reduced the home side to 9 men and right at the death Greysteel struck an equaliser. A spirited extra time performance from the 9 men seen them score again, this time Adam McCrea heading home an excellent cross to secure the wi

Dundela 3-2 Ballinamallard

Despite not recording any points from the fixture, there yet again can be many positives taken. The Mallards took the lead in the game just before half time when Nathan Cashel tapped in Michael Glynn's cross but the advantage was short lived with Jordan Hughes netting an equaliser immediately after the break. TJ Murray put Dundela before Ryan Campbell scored on his return to the team to leave the game evenly poised at 2-2. Unfortunately Murray went onto score again and with both sides spurning chances before the end, it finished with the East Belfast side victorious.
