BALLYMENA 'C' remain in second place in NIPGL Division 4 - despite two losses last week.

Last uesday they travelled to PSNI in a rearranged game and could only muster 2 points for their efforts.

And it was the same outcome on the Saturday, going down to the same score against North Belfast.

In the Ladies Provincial league the Ballymena team was eclipsed 6-0 by closest rivals Ballymoney.

But the NIPGL Midweek team fared much better with a 6.5 to 0.5 victory away to Ewarts last Wednesday evening in atrocious conditions.

On the Vets scene, the Ballymena Ones had an 8-2 win at home to Forth River, while the 'Twos' collected maximum points away to Mossley.
