Second Broughshane ‘A’ refuse to throw in the towel in the unlikely attempt to overhaul First Ahoghill in the race for the Ballymena & District CHurches League title.

The village side continue to battle at the top end of the table in what has been an impressive season to date.

But even taking four points from a win over Craigs couldn’t see them cut the gap between themselves and runaway leaders First Ahoghill.

That’s because the champions also claimed four points from their trip to Killymurris Glarryford - a fixture which, not so many seasons ago, could have been a potential title decider.
