St Mary’s battled back from a 3-1 deficit as Gerard Kerr produced three assists in the weekend draw at home to Ballymacash Rangers.

Chris Mackle converted Kerr’s cross to cut the gap after Rangers’ early 2-0 lead.

Marc Davidson then raced in to steer a Kerr pass into the roof of the net with a close-range strike.

Ryan McKee arrived at the back post to convert another Kerr delivery as the Saints secured a share of the spoils.

“We responded well to going 1-0 down and a tactical switch really helped,” said St Mary’s Gerry Fay. “The second goal rocked us a bit as it came against the run of play.

“A penalty kick then put Ballymacash clear by 3-1 during another good period for us overall.

“Luke Carvill had a couple of chances and even at 3-3 both sides came close to grabbing a winner.

“We certainly feel unlucky on the balance of play not to have the win from Saturday.”
