League leaders Banbridge Town suffered a surprising home reversal with this defeat by Dundela at Crystal Park.

The visitors moved in front eight minutes from the breal through Jamie Jackson after he curled an excellent strike into the far corner beyond Tuda Murphy.

Banbridge levelled on 53 minutes after Ryan Moffatt converted from the spot after the referee ruled that a visiting defender had handled in the area but, as the game approached the closing quarter-of-an-hour, Dundela regained the advantage when Mark McClelland dispossessed the 'keeper to touch the ball home.

Conor Downey might have levelled soon after only to fire over from a good position.

However, Lewis Roy made sure of the points for the Duns late on after he was allowed to head home unmarked from a corner.
