WEEKEND ROUND UP:
South Antrim 0-7 Instonians
With Hutchy on holiday, Ian Glass was called in to make his competitive goalkeeping debut, just 1 month after donning the pads. South played exceptionally well in the first half, but still conceded two from two short corner rebounds after Ian saved the initial drags. It all went to hell mid way through the 2nd half however, as Inst moved to a full press and South had no answer as Inst scored 5 with ease following mistakes under pressure.
South Antrim 2nds 1-4 Banbridge 2nds (N.Wilson
Many expected this to be a white wash defeat, but even without captain Ian Glass and all the other missing players, the 2nds put in a great shift and managed to bag themselves a goal, courtesy of Neil Wilson, en route to a 4-1 loss against the league title contenders.
South Antrim 3rds 3-2 Campbellians 2nds (N.Alister, N.Wilson, A.Farrell)
Fantastic result from the 3rds as they won a tight game. Even better considering a lot of the 3rds players had already played a match for the 2nds to dig them out of a hole. Nathan Alister, Neil Wilson and Andy Farrell on the scoresheet.
South Antrim 4ths 4-0 Belfast Harlequins 3rds (I.McElhenny x2, S.Glenn, A.Collins)
Captain Alister said he’d keep a clean sheet this week, and keep a clean sheet he did! Didn’t quite score 14 like last week, but 4-0 is still a superb scoreline. Gaza’s army just can’t stop scoring, or more to the point, Ian McElhenny can’t stop scoring, he bagged another 2 today.
South Antrim 5ths 1-5 Portadown 3rds (A.Glass)
An Adam Glass flick proved only a consolation goal as Portadown ran riot on home turf, scoring 5 against our young 5ths.
South Antrim Ladies 2nds 0-1 Portadown 3rds
The girls put up a good fight but again come out the wrong side of a 1 goal loss. Lucy Fitzpatrick won player of the match.
