Fivemiletown United 1 Windmill Stars 1.

Fivemiletown United produced a solid performance as they came from behind to take a share of the spoils from their meeting with fourth placed Windmill Stars at Valley Stadium on Saturday.
The home side fell behind against the run of play after 18 minutes but they responded to level the game six minutes later when Glen Clarke slotted home.
And it was nip and tuck over the remainder of the contest with Fivemiletown manager Raymond Clarke satisfied with a point against his high flying opponents.
“Windmill Stars are a good side who are going to finish well up the table so it was a good point for us,” he said. 
“It was a game that we could have won so that’s a positive from our point of view and the boys worked hard which was pleasing.”
Clarke had initially taken on the manager’s position on a temporary basis from Scott Robinson but that role is now more permanent with Clarke in charge until the end of the season.
“I’ve taken it on now to the end of the season and then we will sit down and see where things are. 
“All we are looking over the remainder of the season is to see an improvement and what I do know is that everybody at the club, both players and those behind the scenes, are working hard and that’s important,” he added.
It was the home side who started the game the brighter and Ricki Carroll twice went close, including one effort where he beat the offside trap only to shoot at the goalkeeper.
Despite the lively opening by Fivemiletown it was the away side who were to take the lead against the run of play in the 18th minute when they scored a header from a corner.
Fivemiletown though responded well to this and six minutes later they were back on level terms as Ryan Lynch’s through ball put Glen Clarke through and he made no mistake in finding the net for 1-1.
And the home side were close to taking the lead just before the break when Chris McDowell hit a well struck drive that was pushed behind for a corner as it remained 1-1 at the interval.
The second half saw chances fall at either end in an open encounter. Clarke thought he had bagged his second of the day but this was ruled out for offside while Sean McCaffrey then had a great chance to give Fivemiletown the lead but his shot went past the post.
In the closing moments Stars had a couple of opportunities to snatch the win but Fivemiletown goalkeeper Jamie Callaghan pulled off two good saves as the game finished in a 1-1 draw.
This week Fivemiletown are at home to Valley Rangers.
