DUNDELA striker Dee Wright must have walked off at the end of this game wondering how after scoring four goals he was on the losing side.
The game was a keen tussle with Ballyclare taking the lead on 25 mins when an unmarked Wharry headed in at the far post from a corner.
Ballyclare's second came on 30 mins when a long hopeful ball beat the Duns defence and when keeper Seargeant came out to make the challenge Scott Irvine hit an angled shot into the net passed two defenders who really should have cleared it.
Within a minute a long ball to Wright saw him volley a 20yd shot past a helpless Glendenning.
On 43 mins Wright got number two with a header from a Hunter corner.
The second half was only five mins old when Wright cheekily back heeled the ball into the Ballyclare net for his third to put Dundela into the lead for the first time.
Then on 61mins the first of two hotly disputed penalty awards to Ballyclare, the first dispatched by Wharry to make the game 3 all.
Then two mins later Ballyclare again took the lead when with the Dundela defence stationary McDowell prodded the ball into the net from 2yds.
Back again came Dundela with Wright scoring his fourth with a close in strike.
The game finished in controversy when Ballyclare were awarded a penalty with the ball out of play, Wharry getting his third and Ballyclare's fifth.
