With November turning out to be a successful month for the Mallards, they were looking to start off December on a positive note, and they did so with a well deserved away win. Having enjoyed plenty of first half possession, Harry McConkey's men couldn't quite find the accuracy required in the final third, with Campbell and McIlwaine going closest. John Connolly also produced a good save low to his right on the slick surface to leave the game scoreless at half time. Knockbreda
