Dromara Enjoy Away Win At Ards

Dromara  2  Ards Rangers   1 AFTER the disappointing performance midweek, Dromara travelled to Ards Rangers and came away with a deserved three points. Still missing key players through injury they put in a solid team performance. Dromara took the lead when McDonnell’s effort was deflected in by a defender after twenty minutes.The home side replied soon after when a drive from the edge of the box beat stand in keeper Thompson. Dromara still caused the home defence problems with Jess and McDonnell lively. The second half saw a hardworking effort with Kevin Johston and Graham McDonagh in centre midfield controling proceedings and the back four of Ogorman,McStavick,McNamee and Paul Johnston snuffing out and forays from the home side.With eight minutes left on the clock, a corner was only partially cleared and McNamee hid a belter into the top corner. The games are coming thick and fast now with still eleven on the board, and it sees the next two matches at home to Dunmury Rec on Thursday and Saturday to Malachians. Dromara Seconds Overwhelm Dunmurry Dromara II’s  9  Dunmurry YM  1 Dromara seconds had a much needed win at home to Dunmurry YM 2nds on Saturday, and it was a massive nine goals to one win for the home side.The previous two matches saw them miss a host of chances and only pick up one point,but on this occasion everything clicked. However the first fifteen minutes saw them start in the same vein and should have been three up before Steven Neill opened the scoring. The big forward went on to score another four goals before the hour to make it a great day for him with five.The only flaw in the performance was conceding a poor goal when three up when Brown’s poor clearance at a corner gifted the visitors a consolation. Four more goals were added after Neil’s first five with Carmichael scoring one, although he should have been on par with Neil missing several good chances. Hughes in midfield got in on the act running through for a rare goal,and young Michael McGuiness got two when set up by Carmichael and Stevie Neill. The visitors totally collapsed in the second half and Mitchell was unlucky not to score with the ball appearing to be over the line.Pleasing for manager Gormley as he had to bring in young players again and a odd veteran due to absentees.They have six games left and will need a couple more wins to keep them above the five teams fighting to avoid the drop.]]>
