Institute recorded their second draw of the season with a final score of 1-1 against Ards. Joe McCready put Institute ahead from the penalty spot after Darren Harkin was pulled back whilst through on goal. Ards levelled matters in the 25th minute when a deflected shot left Alan Ryan helpless. In the 65th minute McCready found the net again only for the linesman to flag against him for a foul, much to the bemusement of the big striker. Right at the death, Ards could have stolen it but for some excellent saves from Alan Ryan.
