Despite being beaten for the first time this season, Ballyclare Comrades Reserves are still in control in Ballymena Junior Division 1.

The clash at Antrim Rovers resulted in the hosts running out 2-0 winners with two second-half strikes, while Stephen Hughes’ lads were left to rue failing to convert a penalty in the first session.

Darryl Brammeld netted both goals for Rovers.
