South Antrim 1-0 Newry (C.Henry)
South dominated this Kirk Cup encounter but just couldn’t score for love nor money, as a flick appeal was rejected, another flick decision was reverted to a short and Getty had a tame (and I’m being kind) effort clearance off the line. However, it was Chris Henry to the rescue in the final play of the game when he deflected home a short corner to seal the points.
South Antrim 3rds 1-2 Kilkeels 3rds (G.Glass)
A classic George Glass short corner strike found the bottom corner in a match that, after a rocky start, was fairly even.
South Antrim 4ths 14-1 North Down 5ths ( I.McElhenny x5, A.Hamilton Jnr x 4, P.Cochrane x2, S.Glenn, K.Gamble, A.Smith)
Ian McElhenny seems to have continued his goal scoring from last season, nabbing 5 today. Also a return to hockey for Kurtis Gamble, scoring on his re-debut. Possibly a record scoreline for South Antrim? Can anyone check this?
South Antrim 5ths 2-0 Derg Valley 1sts (N.Wilson x2)
Neil Wilson bagged both goals, one a reverse and the other from a short to bring the points back to Lisburn.
South Antrim Ladies 2nds 2-3 Ulster Elks 4ths (L.Boomer x2)
The Ladies 2s, got promoted this year but haven’t found the step up too hard to handle, losing by 1 in a close contest in the League.
