Dollingstown moved up to seventh place in the Lough 41 Premier Intermediate League as their second win of the campaign came thanks to a two-goal defeat of PSNI at Planters Park.

The Dollybirds took the lead on 10 minutes when Keith Johnston picked the ball up inside his own half and delivered a long ball forward. Mark McCabe got onto the pass but was brought down inside the box by PSNI keeper Tom Hegan. Johnston sent Hegan the wrong way and gave the hosts the lead from the penalty spot.

That was how it stayed until just under a quarter-of-an-hour was left on the clock when Patrick Mooney doubled the home advantage with a stooping back post header from a corner delivered from the left by Johnston.

PSNI ended the game with ten men following Nicholas Turkington's late dismissal for violent conduct.
