Ards 3 Portadown 2
The dream is finally over as the Port went down fighting to the end against Ards at Clandeboye Park tonight. Ards opened the scoring early on through McAllister then Breen equalised before the break from a header. Ards hit back immediately after the break through Shevlin and Keke before Ferris pulled one back from the penalty spot after Soares was pulled back in the box. McMullan was dismissed for his part in the incident and he was followed by Sean Mackle for something he said to a match official.
At the end of the game, Ports manager Niall Currie called his players over to commiserate with the supporters who had travelled in numbers to back the team this evening.
