BLUES BAG FIVE AT WINDSOR

Linfield shared the goals around the squad as they cruised to a comfortable defeat of Ards at Windsor Park.

Cameron Stewart kicked things off as early as the fourth minute when he rose to nod home a Paul Smythn corner.

Guillaume Keke levelled for the visitors after a quarter-of-an-hour but Kirk Millar restored Linfield's lead 12 minutes after that before, on the stroke of half-time, Andrew Waterworth stretched their advantage.

Stephen Lowry added a fourth midway through the second half with Aaron Burns completing the scoring in stoppage time by nutmegging Aaron Hogg.
