South Antrim 4-3 North Down (J.Patterson, C.Henry, M.Getty x2)
South win this crucial game to put space between themselves and North Down at the bottom of the table. They couldn’t have gotten a better start as Jonny Patterson slapped home when the ball fell kindly after the initial shot. Matthew Getty doubled the lead when Chris Henry waltzed along the baseline and set him up for a tap in. North then pulled one back with a drag flick. Soon after Chris Henry dispossessed a defender and beat the keeper one on one. In the second half South soaked up the pressure with ease but could have had the game out of sight as two pull backs were missed, a shot saved off the line and a missed penalty flick. Eventually South did score a 4th as a pull back from Henry again found Getty, who found the corner with a crisp shot. North Down scored a second drag flick and in the dying minutes reduced the deficit to one with their own penalty flick. The boys can climb the table if they get a result against Mossley this Saturday.
