It was a night to forget for Loughgall as they crashed to a heavy defeat against Bangor slipping down to ninth in the Ladbrokes.com Championship 1, as well as finishing the match with only eight players.
Loughgall made the worst possible start, as they were a goal behind after only 30 seconds when Andy Morrow headed home Gareth McLaughlin’s corner from close range. The Seasiders doubled their advantage on 11 minutes when Dean Youle slid in to convert following ‘keeper Marc Robinson’s save from Andy Morrow’s low shot.
The Villagers grabbed a goal back five minutes later when Daniel Ryan expertly picked his spot to fire home through a goalmouth full of players.
Ten minutes later Bangor regained their two-goal lead when Morrow had the easy task of tapping home after Ben Browne’s set-up for his 100th goal for the Seasiders.
On the stroke of half-time, Loughgall had the ball in the visitors goal after a long free-kick was launched into the penalty area. Alan Murphy out-jumped ‘keeper Paul Cairnduff to flick the ball towards goal, and just as the ball was rolling in Ryan tapped home to make sure. Unfortunately for him and his side, he was adjudged to have been in an offside position and the goal was chalked off.
The decision would prove costly for Loughgall as they conceded early in the second period when Morrow squared across goal for McLaughlin to slot home.
On 69 minutes, the Villagers were dealt a further blow as referee Hugh Carville dismissed Andy Smith for a second bookable offence. And 4 minutes later Morrow again set-up a team-mate buy strattera online australia to finish when winger Browne was on hand to finish from close range.
Loughgall had their second player sent-off when Aaron Willis, who’d only been brought on as a substitute a few minutes previously, was shown a straight red card in the 75th minute after bringing down George Chelariu inside the area.
