Jonathan Rea crashes out while leading in Portugal
In the Danske Bank Premiership, Carrick Rangers bounced back from a goal down and a man down to defeat Ballymena United at the Loughshore Hotel Arena.
They were reduced to ten men following Stewart Nixon's dismissal for a challenge on Caolan Loughran in the first half but battled bravely and three minutes into added time, Jordan Gibson struck to seal the points for Stuart King's side.
Portadown also had a comeback victory - from 2-0 down they beat Warrenpoint 3-2 at Milltown.
Plenty of goals also at Dungannon, where Larne won 4-2 to close the gap at the top to a point.
Glentoran got back to winning ways with Jay Donnelly netting a penalty winner against Glenavon at Mourneview Park.
