Most pundits made Ards the pre-match favourites but they rarely showed the kind of form that has made them promotion candidates.
The 'wee Glens' took a first half lead when Richard Gibson, who has plenty of Irish League experience, headed home a cross from Kevin Braden.
Newtownards-based Glens player Steven Gordon Gibson made it 2-0 after the break and Gibson wrapped things up with a third goal.
