We travel to Lakeview Park this afternoon to take on Loughgall in our next Lough 41 Championship fixture.
When: Saturday 17th December – Kick-Off 3:00pm
Where: Lakeview Park
What: Lough 41 Championship
Entry: Pay at the gate
Last week, leaders Loughgall came from behind to claim a point from Institute at the Brandywell. The Villagers had the majority of chances in the scoreless first half, but fell behind not long after the interval when Cathair Friel ran onto a through ball from Mark McFadden to beat Berraat Turker with a composed finish. But Loughgall levelled with just over a quarter-of-an-hour remaining through Tiernan Kelly after connecting with a corner.
Before last weekend’s fixture was postponed, Conall Curran knocked home the only goal of the game as Ballyclare Comrades defeated Institute at Dixon Park. The Comrades man struck on 81 minutes from close range after connecting with a low ball delivered by Kyle Beggs. The result sees the Comrades leapfrog Institute into 6th position in the Lough 41 Championship.
Last Time Out
The last time these two sides met in October, Lough left Dixon Park with all three points following a four-goal victory over Ballyclare Comrades. Scoreless at the break, Championship player of the month Nedas Maciulaitis edged the Villagers in front on the hour after he was quickest to react to the loose ball from a Nathaniel Ferris effort. He then made it 2-0 nine minutes later after connecting with an Ally Teggart pass … and Teggart himself got on the scoresheet after that with a deflected finish from just outside the box. Benji Magee completed the scoring with a couple of minutes remaining just after Ryan Masterson had smashed an effort against the crossbar.
