Brendan Connolly’s hat-trick joy provided an extra highlight as Laurelvale recorded a first win of the campaign after 12 previous disappointments.
Connolly was joined on the Laurelvale scoresheet by David Sinton’s double during the welcome 5-1 victory.
Laurelvale kicked off the scoring courtesy of a double-figure tally of passing that ended with Sinton firing home off Connolly’s pass.
It was level at half-time but Connolly restored the lead with a close-range finish after Stuart McClelland’s testing free-kick.
Sinton then picked out Connolly for 3-1 and the former fired in number four.
Connolly closed out the scoring - with Ryan Kelly impressive in an emergency centre-back and David McQuiggan strong in midfield.
