Irish Premiership: Ballymena grab late win over champions Crusaders

Premiership leaders Crusaders suffer their first defeat of the season as 10-man Ballymena snatch a late win.

A Jim Ervin own goal put the Belfast side ahead, before Tony Kane equalised from the penalty spot.

Ballymena had keeper Ross Glendinning sent-off for handling outside the area but they sealed the three points near the end when Kyle Owens' header went in off Crusaders captain Colin Coates.
