Football: Keeper blunder gives Sky Blues just re-Ward; Ballymena 2 Omagh 1.
BALLYMENA UNITED sent Omagh Town tumbling out of the CIS Insurance Cup at the Showgrounds last night.
An amazing 36th minute blunder by rookie goalkeeper Peter Ward gifted the Sky Blues the winner.
He allowed Trevor McLernman's wind assisted delivery from the half way line to bounce in front of him and the ball reared up off the greasy turf into the net.
Ivan Sproul had given the visitors a dream start. The Castleeerg boy steered in a quality opener from James Quigley's delightful pass on 34 minutes.
And the equaliser on the stroke of half time oozed class too. Shea Campbell drove the ball past Ward's right hand from a mark McNicholl low cross.
