Ballinamallard 2-0 Queens Uni

It was nervy at times, but another victory and clean sheet is hard to beat! Ryan Campbell scored for the third successive game early in the first half and despite controlling the majority of the first 45, the Mallards couldn't quite find a further breakthrough. Queens were showing signs of danger and held their own throughout the game, with a second goal proving illusive for Ballinamallard. Ryan O'Reilly, Chris Kelly and Nathan Cashel all had attempts at goal with goalkeeper Conor Lally producing a fingertip save to deny the former. Ronan Young let Ballinamallard off the hook when he flashed a shot past Connolly but wide of goal when well placed before a critical second goal arrived minutes

Ballinamallard 4-0 Dundela

A win and a clean sheet against the team above you in the league is about as much as you could ask for - and we got both! In truth, the result was harsh on the visitors but they came up against a Mallards side brimming with confidence at the moment. The only negative to the game was the injury sustained to Richard Clarke who left the pitch in severe pain - we of course wish him a speedy recovery. Prior to Jason McCartney opening the scoring direct from a corner on 24 minutes, Dundela were incensed that they weren't awarded a penalty for a claimed handball against Ross Taheny. Callum Moorehead was unlucky not to make it two when his shot was cleared off the line before Dundela's big chance of

Ballinamallard 4-5 Linfield AET

Betmclean League Cup holders Linfield survived a major scare last night at Ferney Park, requiring an 88th minute goal and extra time to overcome the Championship side and move into round 3. The Mallards, who led twice in the game, can be very proud of their performance but will also be disappointed in the manner of the goals they conceded. The home took the lead with just 3 minutes on the clock when Ryan Campbell volleyed in Callum Moorehead's cross from the right for a dream start. Campbell was unlucky not to score again when he sneaked in behind the Linfield backline but Gareth Deane was quick from his line to block. Cooper, Lavery and Waterworth all went close for 'the Blues' before Laver

Loughgall 1-2 Ballinamallard

The Mallards inflicted Loughgall with their first defeat of the season thanks to a strong away performance at Lakeview Park. With only minutes on the clock the home side took the lead via a free kick and it remained that way until the half. Harry McConkey's men started the second half strongly with Chris Kelly hitting the bar before Jason McCartney equalised and then Sean McEvoy netted the winner. That result keeps the Mallards in fourth as they turn their attention to the League Cup on Tuesday night at home to Linfield.

Ballinamallard 2-1 Newbuildings

Goals from Aaron Arkinson and Lee Frazer helped the Mallards into the Semi Finals of the Eventsec North West Intermediate Cup last night. Despite other opportunities, Arkinson's goal was all that separated the sides at half time before Frazer doubled the advantage shortly after the break. Sam Robb hit the crossbar before Newbuildings pulled a goal back within the last 10 minutes to leave a nervy finish. The away side surged forward in search of an equaliser and it took a couple of John Connolly saves to keep them at bay and secure victory. The other Semi Finalists include Dergview, Limavady and Moyola Park with the draw to be confirmed. Congratulations also to Academy graduate Ben McCann who

Taheny hits the ton

Congratulations to our number 4 Ross Taheny who, still only 22 years of age, made his 100th club appearance yesterday. Hopefully we'll continue to see his infectious smile around the club for another 100

Ballinamallard 0-1 Newry City

A late Stephen McCavitt goal inflicted a harsh blow on the Mallards, who will feel they should have taken more from this game. Whilst the visitors were dominant in the first half, Harry McConkey's men were the better in the second and passed up a bagful of chances. Newry felt they should have been awarded a penalty early on when Conor McCaul was fouled whilst John McGovern also shot off target when well placed. The Mallards were frustrated not to be awarded a penalty themselves by referee Barry Monaghan early after the restart when Ryan Campbell was fouled. A free kick was given right on the edge of the penalty area which McCartney hit the post with. McCartney then himself was fouled in box

Darren in on a free
