Barrhill 4 Auchengeich 1
JF Colley Trophy, second round
Following a good result last week Barrhill were looking to build on that on Saturday.
The first half was all Barrhill but they had no real cutting edge in front of goal. The football was great considering the grass on the park was so long.
The game was 20 minutes old before the home side had a decent chance. A cross into the box was dropped by the keeper and Pender put his chance past the post.
Divine was next with a chance, but his free-kick was tipped over the bar by the keeper and Black blasted another effort over the bar.
With half-time approaching, Duffy played passback to Stevenson, but just as he was ready to clear the ball bobbled over his foot and into the net.
The second half was all in the visitors’ half, with Barrhill getting back on level terms when Pender played a great ball to Hopkins who side-footed his volley into the corner of the net.
The home side took the lead when Jack’s corner was powerfully headed into the top corner by Pender before Jack scored from the penalty spot and Hopkins notched up his second of the day.
Man of the match award went to Hopkins.
Barrhill: Stevenson, Bell, Pender, Duffy, McPherson, Jack, Malone, Hopkins, Fulton, Blakc, Divine. Subs: Byrne and Quinn.
