United travelled to Ballywalter Rec on Saturday for a league fixture hoping to extend their unbeaten run to four matches.
The first half was dominated by United however they really created very little except for a header from Ian McMullan which went just over the crossbar. In the second half it was the home side who took up the running and but for a goal line clearance from Scott Brashaw and a couple of good saves from Brian McMullan they would have been behind. Gareth Bingham had one of the best of the second half scoring opportunities when his shot was well saved by the Ballywalter keeper. Just as the game seemed destined to be a scoreless draw Stuarty McMullan skipped down the left wing on 87 minutes and crossed to the back post and up stepped Craig Bowman to side foot the ball into the empty net.
These three points put United to the top of the Division 1B league table although they have played a few more games than their rivals.
This week they entertain Holywood at Millbridge.
