Only Buckna can now stop First Ahoghill regaining their Ballymena & District Churches League crown.

As the season approaches its finale, Ahoghill edged closer to the title by taking three-and-a-ha;f points from their trip to Grange.

Buckna have five games left, compared with Ahoghill’s three but the defending champions are realistically going to have to win all of those and hope for some major slips from Ahoghill, who appear to have one hand on the trophy.
