GOALS AND POINTS SHARED AS CURTAIN DROPS AT THE OVAL

Glentoran and Ards called time on their respective league campaigns with a share of the spoils at The Oval.

The Glens twice struck the woodwork during the first half through Jonathan Smith and then Ross Redman.

But it was Ards who led at the break when, after half-an-hour, Kyle Cherry glanced a header past Dwayne Nelson from a corner.

Despite Curtis Allen being denied by a goalline Johnny Taylor clearance the Glens eventually levelled on 79 minutes when Eric Foley nodded a scrambled finish over the line.
