Spring­hall Spar­tans took on ti­tle hold­ers Castlemilk Dynamo in the Sun­day Cen­tral AFL Premier at Glas­gow Green.

The hosts were look­ing for an­other big scalp fol­low­ing the win over Tre­ble 2 a fort­night ago.

In a closely fought first half there were chances for both teams, with the Dynamo keeper pulling off three top saves which spurred his side on. But in a 10 minute spell be­fore half time, Castlemilk found the net twice, much to the dis­may of the Spring­hall play­ers who had matched their op­po­si­tion un­til that point.

Spar­tans looked down and out af­ter the break as they con­ceded an­other two goals within 10 min­utes of the restart as Dynamo pressed the Spring­hall in de­fence.

How­ever, to their credit Spar­tans con­tin­ued to play in the style they have shown in re­cent games and were awarded a penalty af­ter Neely was brought down in the box.

Hamil­ton stepped up to hit the penalty which the Dynamo keeper saved, but he kept his cool to slot home the re­bound.

A se­cond fol­lowed soon af­ter. Cun­ning­ham found him­self free in the box and fired in a shot which the Castlemilk goal­keeper saved bril­liantly, only for it to come off the op­po­si­tion cap­tain and into the net.
