Ballyclare Comrades 2-0 Dundela 03/04/2012 Championship2.
Dundela suffered a disappointing defeat against promotion rivals Comrades in yet another game marred by controversial refereeing decisions.
Comrades were already two goals up when referee Boyce dismissed two home players, the first for a professional foul and the other deep in stoppage time for an apparent head butt.
The game got off to the worst possible start for the Duns going behind when referee Boyce awarded a soft penalty on 9 minutes and Irvine scored with the kick.
Comrades enjoyed the better possession in the remainder of the half with the conditions proving difficult for both teams.
Dundela came out for the second half hungry to get back in the game but good chances for Faulkner and Roy went begging and it was the home side who wrapped up the win with a little over 15 minutes to go.
Dwaine Beattie had a chance to get one back before the end but couldn’t find the target from close range.
Sergeant, Ballard, Walker, Faulkner, Hume, Gourley(C), Irwin, Gilliland, Wright, McCain, Roy.
