Bellshill Athletic 2 Glenafton Athletic 2
Scorers: Feroz, Savage
Bellshill blasted out of the blocks and were 2-0 up with less than six minutes on the clock through goals by two former Glens players. On 3 minutes the visitors lost possession near the half way line giving Stuart Tullis a free run in on goal and he slotted the ball past the advancing Fahey with ease. Three minutes later Willie Howie conceded a penalty and Paul McBride sent Fahey the wrong way from the spot kick. The Glens fought back with some style and pulled one back on 14 minutes. Good build up play by Chic Connolly and Jamie Doyle set up Craig Feroz in the box who turned and fired home through a crowded penalty area to beat Scott McNab at his near post. On 27 minutes a Doyle cross was headed back across the goal mouth by Paul McMullan and Joe Savage beat defender and keeper to head home the equaliser. Both sides had chances to add to their tally but there was to be no further scoring after the early goalfest.
