- Loch Park, New Cumnock
- Glenafton Athletic 1 (1)
- Irvine Meadow XI 1 (1)
Glenafton made a number of changes to the line-up that started at Auchinleck on Saturday. Keeper Craig Burns and defender Ryan McChesney replacing the injured Brian McGarrity and Cameron (as they had at Beechwood) while Lee Gallacher and Ryan Nisbet made way for Ally Park and Joe Andrew.
The home side got off to a great on 5 minutes after Meadow only partially cleared a corner-kick and Kyle McAusland (right) gathered the loose ball wide on the left before progressing to the corner of the penalty box to drill a low shot through a crowd of players into the net.
Ten minutes before the break Meadow drew level through a fine glancing header from Darren Jones. Soon after Glens were reduced to 10 men for the second game in succession after a Craig Pettigrew challenge was adjudged worthy of a red card .
H/T Glens 1 Meadow 1
The 10 men battled manfully throughout the half in which both sides created some decent chances and the keepers made some fine saves. The home side almost snatched all three point as Ally Park came close in the closing minutes.
