GLENS ON FIRE ON BURNS NIGHT
Glenafton hosted Petershill under the lights at Loch Park on Burns Night. The home side made one change from the eleven that started against Pollok (14th January) with Ollie Rowe returning in place of Jamie McKernon (suspended).
A goal frenzy either side of half-time saw the Glens run out 3-1 winners against the Peasy.
The home side made the breakthrough on 38 minutes. Michael McMullin intercepted a headed clearance in the centre circle and burst through the middle to slip the ball forward to Sean McKenzie in the ‘D’ who instantly clipped it forward into the path of Leon Murphy breaking into left hand side of the box and although his diagonal cut-back from the bye-line was missed by McKenzie it fell for Scott McLean on the far side of the box to sweetly strike a low unstoppable shot from 16 yards out to beat the keeper at the post. A cracking first goal for the Glens in only his second game.
Two minutes later the Glens doubled their advantage with a wonderfully worked goal beginning and ending with Hugh Kerr. The striker broke down a Peasy attack deep in his own half and McLean gathered the loose ball to instantly return it to Kerr who quickly rolled it back to Paul Paton. Still deep in their own half, Paton clipped the ball forward to McLean on the right wing from where he played it inside to Calvin Kemp who whipped the ball down the right for McLean to chase, and then chip it into the box where the inrushing Kerr got between two defenders to bullet a powerful header home from 6 yards out.
However, a minute later Christian Nade halved the deficit and the hal finished Glens 2 Petershill 1 at the break.
The Glens restored their two goal cushion on 48 minutes after Leon Murphy whipped a corner in from the right and the incoming Ollie Rowe had the space and time to guide a header into the net through a throng of players fro the six yard line.
