MID-ULSTER INTERMEDIATE LEAGUE SECTION A
CAMLOUGH ROVERS 1 DOLLINGSTOWN 1

DOLLINGSTOWN made the trip to take on Camlough Rovers with both sides level in the standings ahead of kick-off.

It proved honours even at the final whistle as Dollingstown’s superior goal difference helped to keep Gary Duke and his players second in the table.

The hard-earned away point was wrapped up thanks to Ashley Gregg’s finish, with the marksman having earlier hit the frame of the goal off a free-kick.

“I would have grabbed a point if put on the table before kick-off, “ said Duke, the Dollingstown manager. “However, it was disappointing to see us struggle to get control of the game in the second half until the closing stages.

“We dominated the first half and missed a load of chances, including one by Adam Walker from a few yards.

“Andy Hamilton was brilliant for us in midfield but our attacking play proved poor overall.

“Falling behind to a side like Camlough can always prove difficult but we waited too long to give it a go.

“We lacked the mental strength to win the match and too many went hiding so I am expecting a positive response down the line.”
