Ballymena edge Dungannon in Showgrounds thriller

Ballymena United recover from a goal down to edge out Dungannon Swifts 3-2 in a Showgrounds thriller.

Kris Lowe scored the opening goal for the Swifts, before Kyle Owens equalised for the home side with a header.

Tony Kane then put Ballymena ahead for the first time from the penalty spot, his 12th successful conversion of the season.

That lead was short lived as Andrew Mitchell equalised for the Swifts, at the second time of asking, a muddy goalmouth nearly denying the striker.

Caolan Loughran secured the points for David Jeffrey’s side as he headed in the winner.
