Cumnock Juniors vs. Glenafton Athletic : SuperLeague 1st Division

CUMNOCK JUNIORS 0 GLENAFTON ATHLETIC 2

Scorers: Savage, Feroz

Jamie MacDonald and Pedro Serrao were both sidelined through while strikers Craig Feroz and Joe Savage returned to spearhead the Glens attack. The visitors made a bright start in the glorious sunshine and Craig Feroz was denied in the opening minutes by an alert Derek Barnes in the Cumnock goal who rushed to the 18 yard line to block the shot. The Glens continued to enjoy the bulk of the possession and although they carved out several other chances Barnes' goal remained intact. Cumnock had fewer chances but spurned probably the best one of the half when a free header from a corner kick failed to hit the target. HT Cumnock 0 Glens 0 
The second half was barely a minute old when Joe Savage almost put the Glens in front when a low drilled shot from the edge of the box had Barnes scurrying across his goal.  A minute later the keeper was rooted to the spot when Big Lily magically got horizontal in a ruck of players to hook an overhead kick into the roof of the net, for an early contender of goal of the season. The Glens then endured some sustained pressure as Cumnock began to stroke the ball about but the defence stood firm with Gordon Moffat and Chris Merrilees at its heart some heroics in the form a finder tip save from Ally Semple and last ditch tackle by Chic Connolly. The next goal was going to be crucial in deciding the outcome of the game but it didn't arrive until the 85th minute when Craig Feroz on the half way line spotted Barnes off his line and coolly lobbed the ball over the hapless goalie. The game finished as it had started with Barnes denying Feroz with a two handed parry to prevent a Glens third
