Vic­tory for foot­ball side

Ayrshire Post - - INTIMATIONS -

It was a com­fort­able win for Auchin­leck Academy’s foot­ball star­lets on their trav­els to Ste­warton.

Auchin­leck were on top from the first whis­tle, forc­ing Ste­warton onto the back foot with te­na­cious tack­ling, strong run­ning and slick pass­ing moves.

And the team’s first half dom­i­nance paid off with two won­der­ful goals, one from Kay­lum Fer­gu­son the other from An­drew Neil.

In the sec­ond half, de­spite be­ing forced to make changes, Auchin­leck con­tin­ued in the same vein and the game was over as a con­test when Kay­lum grabbed his sec­ond to make the lead an unas­sail­able 3- 0.

De­spite car­ry­ing knocks, Auchin­leck pushed hard and con­tin­ued to cre­ate chances with Jake Grif­fin seal­ing the fourth as he chased down a lost cause, caus­ing the Ste­warton keeper to rush his clear­ance which Jake de­flected into the net.

Man of the match was a dif­fi­cult choice - but left back Jor­dan Beck, in his first game with the se­nior team, took the award by the small­est of mar­gins after read­ing the game well, never miss­ing a tackle and clever dis­tri­bu­tion which cre­ated a num­ber of good chances.
