Am­a­teur foot­ball round up: Fern­hill progress af­ter cup thriller

Rutherglen Reformer - - Motors -

It was goals ga­lore in the Sun­day Cen­tral AFL as Fern­hill United made it into the next round of the Health Re­wards Cup with a 5 - 4 win over Crown­point United.

Af­ter go­ing 2-0 down, a lovely move in­volv­ing Don­nelly, Hewitt and Camp­bell ended with the striker slot­ting home low past the keeper.

They con­ceded a third be­fore the break and the play­ers were given a stern half-time team talk that seemed to do the job.

Straight from kick-off Lee Car­racher broke clear and ri­fled the ball into the net.

The equaliser came as Crown­point started to tire. Camp­bell broke down the right-hand side and hit a cross that flew into the far top cor­ner.

Fur­ther goals from James Don­nelly and Barry Lee Rusk took it to 5-3 be­fore the vis­i­tors pulled one back to cre­ate a nervy last five min­utes.

Castlemilk Dynamo also ad­vanced to the next round thanks to Wul­lie Hewitt’s win­ning strike in a penalty shoot-out.

Diego, Bobby Hughes, Alan Sem­ple and Danny Obrien scored for Dynamo as the game fin­ished 4-4 in nor­mal time against AFC Polo­nia Glas­gow.
