WEEKEND ROUND UP
South Antrim 2-9 Kilkeel (J.Brown, M.Getty)
A disastrous trip to the seaside for the Men’s 1sts. Kilkeel were first to everything and with South chasing the game after going down early, they scored numerous times on the break. A super strike from James Brown and a neat reverse from Matthew Getty were the only positives for South on a dire outing.
South Antrim 2nds 1-7 Newry 2nds (C.Arnott)
A disastrous trip to the border town for the Men’s 2nds. Newry were first to everything and with South chasing the game after going down early, they scored numerous times on the break. A neat finished from Chris Arnott was the only positive for South on a dire outing.
South Antrim 3rds 4-1 Campbellians (N.Alister, G.Glass, S.Glenn, J.Deane)
An overhead volley with his back to goal by George Glass opened the scoring (I’ve no idea how this is possible). A Stuart Glenn positioned himself perfectly to tap in at the back post. John Deane blasted home a 3rd from the edge before Stuart Glenn made a mess of a trick, allowing a Campbellians forward to nip in and score. No damage was done as Nathan Alister netted a reverse with aplomb to seal a 7th win from 7 in the League.
South Antrim 4ths 2-2 South Antrim 5ths (A.Glass Jnr, J.Taylor) (I.McElhinney x2)
A true classic of a game, the 5ths nearly made off with the points to humiliate the 4ths. However, Chairman Taylor was having none of it, scoring in the dying moments to tie the game. Adam Glass Junior netted for the 4ths and 2 short corner strikes from Ian McElhinney had the 5ths’ noses in front. Many thanks to Chris Moulden for helping out.
Merry Christmas to all, we are back on the 9th of January. #RABA
