Downpatrick FC 3 v Ards Rangers 3

After a horrible opening 20 minutes Downpatrick found themselves 3 goals down after allowing Ards Rangers to bully them.

Half Time: Downpatrick FC 1 v Ards Rangers 3

In the second half Downpatrick set about trying to get back into the game and as the half wore on they started to grow in self-belief but it wasn’t until the 70th minute when Ryan Cassidy converted a Joe Healy cross. This set up a frantic last 10 minutes where Downpatrick pounded the Ards goal, but Andy McCoubrey won a free kick around 20 yards out, Sean Ferris then hit a sublime free into the bottom corner to give his side a share of the points.
