GLENTORAN 2 ARDS 2
Second half strikes from Danny McKee and Fra McCaffrey put Glentoran into the Sixth Round of the Irish Cup, in a dreary affair at The Oval.
Championship club Ards held the Glens for 59 minutes, but their former youth team player McKee found a 59th minute goal to give the home side a slender win their endeavours deserved.
Although Ards played well for the opening hour, Glentoran could have scored a few more goals in the second half, and it was no surprise when Fra McCaffrey added a second in the 93rd minute.
