Jonathan Rea has crashed out of two races at the World Superbike round in Portugal.

The six-time champion and title holder came off his bike on Saturday when leading (video below) and there was a repeat performance on Sunday when he slid off the track.

However, he then bounced back to win the third race of the weekend. 

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.

Crusaders host Coleraine on Monday night. 

No problems for Ulster Rugby on Saturday evening, with a demolition job on Zebra in Italy.
