WEEKEND ROUND UP
South Antrim 1-5 Instonians (C.Henry)
It wasn’t the league changing upset they were hoping for, but South put on a good performance at Shawsbridge. They limited Inst chances to just a handful, but they didn’t need to be told twice when they came along, netting 5 of about 7 shots. South’s goal came from Ward Phillips in the left corner playing the ball in to John Semple on the edge who rolled his man and played a reverse cross to the flick spot for Chris Henry to dive for, sublime. They nearly scored again when Henry stole the ball off the last man and played in Paul Maguire, but the keeper was out very early and smothered the ball at the edge of the D.
South Antrim 3rds 4-1 Kilkeel 3rds (G.Glass x2, A.Glass Jnr, S.Hood)
Stephen Hood opened the scoring when his bulled his way through 4 defenders before powering home a shot from a tight angle, #winning. George Glass netted just before interval to give South a 2 goal cushion. In the second half Adam Glass got on the end of a cross to score a deft deflection before George Glass struck again to make it 4. Sadly, they couldn’t hold on to the clean sheet as Kilkeel scored at the death to reduce the deficit.
South Antrim 4ths 1-7 Portadown 3rds (S.Glenn)
The only thing positive about this was a tidy finish from Stu ‘Sharpshooter’ Glenn. Other than that it was all Portadown, as they netted 7 times.
South Antrim Ladies 2nds 0-0 Ards Ladies 5ths
The ladies seconds end their season with a draw away to Ards 5ths. They will have to wait and see how other results go find out where they finish. Emma Kitchenham was awarded player of the match.
South Antrim Ladies 3rds 0-4 Portadown 3rds
The girls held the league leaders at 0-0 until the second half when experience won out and they succumbed to a 4-0 loss. An improvement over last time though, encouraging.
