Match Report


DESPITE the first half failing to produce any goals both sides did strike the woodwork.

Rangers came close to opening the scoring on 11 minutes after Anthony Lagan played Stephen O'Neill through only for his subsequent effort to connect with the crossbar.

Then, after half-an-hour, a Gary McCutcheon free-kick was tipped over by 'keeper Maros Valko and from the corner David Munster hit an effort against the underside of the bar.

Ballymena moved in front five minutes into the second half after Jordan Baker turned before shooting past Valko for his fifth goal of the campaign.

And McCutcheon added a second eleven minutes after that with a back post finish after the home defence had failed to clear a corner.
