Carrick new boy Ben Roy sent his old team Dundela out of the Irish Cup with a late strike at Inver Park.

Roy’s 87th-minute goal - his first for his hometown club - sealed a 3-2 win for Gary Haveron’s men.

Stephen McCain had given the Duns a 1-0 lead at half-time before two Jody Lynch goals put Carrick in the driving seat midway through the second session. Owain Beggs pulled one back for the Belfast men, but Roy had the final say late in the game to send Carrick into the sixth round of the competition.
