Ports opened their 2019/20 league account with a short trip to Lakeview Park to face Loughgall, the game started ferociously and the Ports had the first chance of the game after a deep cross from Chris Crane found Adam Salley at the back post who took a touch and unleashed a shot that was tipped over the bar. The game was then caught in somewhat of a stalemate as both sides struggled to create many opportunities with the home side on top of the game as the first half came to a close.
The second half began with the Ports looking to take control and they have the ball in the net after 66 minutes when Salley got on the end of a Chris Lavery cross to finish from close range but he was adjudged to be off side. Not many other opportunities of note as the Ports struggled to create against a hard working, stubborn Loughgall side, with the game ending in frustration for the visitors.
