Glens win fiery af­fair over Vale

Rutherglen Reformer - - Sport -

Glen­cairn recorded a 3-2 win over Vale of Clyde in their third game in the sec­tional league cup.

It proved a fiery af­fair, with Glens fin­ish­ing the match with 10 men and Vale only nine.

Vale went in at half- time lead­ing through Kevin Hamill’s 34th minute strike.

The scores were level in the 49th minute when Mark Tait headed Adam Nis­canci’s cross into the net.

Vale were back in front when Dun­nachie fouled Gavin Ross in the box and the for­mer Glens man made no mis­take from the spot.

Two goals in a minute, how­ever, turned the game on its head.

First Fraser’s per­fect cross was met on the volley by David Dun­nachie to make it 2-2.

And just a minute later Tait nod­ded the ball into the path of Batch­e­lor, who fired home.

Ten­sions fi­nally boiled over in the 76th minute when Ross dived into a dan­ger­ous chal­lenge and play­ers from both sides re­acted an­grily.

Once the ref­eree had re­stored or­der – af­ter some se­ri­ous whistling – straight red cards were pro­duced for Ross and Buck­ley of Vale and Batch­e­lor of Glen­cairn.
