BALLINAMALLARD 2 COLERAINE 1
A controversial penalty well into injury time gave Ballinamallard United a vital three points against Coleraine.
Jason McCartney scored from the spot after referee Raymond Hetherington adjudged Adam Mullan had handled the ball from a stinging Cathal Beacom drive.
The home side had taken the lead on 27 minutes when a Currie corner found Steve Feeney, who outjumped the Coleraine defence to head down and into the net.
Coleraine levelled on 37 minutes after a long throw wasn’t dealt with by the home defence and when the ball fell to Matthew Snoody his snap-shot sneaked in at the near post past ’keeper Murphy.
Central defender David Ogilby was red-carded on 75 minutes after a tackle on Stuart Hutchinson, but all the drama came in the dying seconds with the controversial spot kick which McCartney converted into the bottom corner.
