GLENAFTON CHAMPIONS AFTER DALLAS DOUBLE

Glenafton withstood an onslaught from a rampant Rob Roy in the opening half hour of a potential title decider at Guy’s Meadow, Cumbernauld, Ryan McChesney more often than not getting the better of Willie Sawyers in fantastic tussle between two determined competitors.  The visitors grew into the game as the half drew to a close and started the second in the same positive fashion. On 55 minutes Kyle McAusland wide on the right flank floated the ball into the box for Chris Dallas to rise and bullet a powerful header that, despite his best efforts, keeper Michael McKinven could not stop from crossing the line. Five minutes later the Glens striker burst into the box and slipped the ball past the advancing keeper only for it to crash of the base of the post.

Midway through the half Mick McCann outjumped a defender to head the ball into box which Dallas, cutting in from the right, chased down before unleashing an unstoppable from a tight angle that flew past the keeper at full stretch and into the far corner of the net. Shell-shocked Rabs rallied and forced a series of corners that were mopped up by keeper Brian McGarrity.

On 74 minutes the hosts had the ball in the net from a Sawyers’ header from a offside position. Play raged from end to end without further scoring and news that Glens remaining title challengers Auchinleck Talbot had suffered a 3-0 defeat at Beith ensured that the New Cumnock side’s point tally, with a game to go, could not be bettered, sparking joyous scenes of dancing in the rain at Guy’s Meadow!
