An Aaron Jarvis 92nd minute winner handed Institute the points from this Friday night clash with Ards at Clandeboye Park.

In a low key opening a Jamie McIntyre shot which Ards keeper Sam Johnston comfortably saved was the only highlight.

At the other end, after half-an-hour, David McAllister saw a header denied by Martin Gallagher while the same player fired just wide not long after that.

It proved to be a game of half chances for both sides. Josh Kelly sent the ball over the Institute goal with Aaron Harkin doing the same at the opposite end.

Moving into the second half Jonah Mitchell and Michael McLellan fired too high with Institute's Michael McCrudden sending a deflected effort wide.

McCrudden then came close towards the end of the game but could only fire into the side netting until, two minutes into stoppage time, Jarvis turned the ball into the corner past Johnston to secure the points for the visitors.
