Ferguson on form as Ballymacash Rangers defeat Tandragee

An improved second-half display on Saturday saw Ballymacash Rangers beat Tandragee in the Mid-Ulster Intermediate A league.

A first half strike from Chris Ferguson set the sides apart at the interval in a half that Ballymacash side had all of the play but were not clinical enough in front of the Tandragee goal.

Guillaume Keke added the important second goal just before the hour mark, which then opened the proverbial floodgates for Ballymacash as both Ferguson and Keke grabbed their second of the afternoon shortly after.

Ballymacash did get a fifth goal in the end, with young forward Kian Storey opening his account for the club as he finished well after just beating the offside trap.

It was another important victory for Lee Forsythe’s men as they now enter their final month of the season, with just six more league games left to play.

Result: Ballymacash Rangers 5-0 Tandragee Rovers
