Amateur football round up: Fernhill progress after cup thriller
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.
Springhall Spartans ran riot in a 16-1 hammering of The Hub in the Premier League.
Andrew Cunningham’s seven goals accompanied a brace each for Jordan Hamilton and Steven Neely and efforts from Jordan Wilson, Steven Dundas, Scott Faulds, Craig Reid and Michael Sorbie completed the rout. In Division One Eastfield Star lost 6-4 to Haldane United at Glasgow Green.
Two goals from Mick McAllen and strikes from Darren McCann and Karl Duncan were not enough for the Star.
