ANTONINE shared six goals with Ayrshire side Stewarton Annick in their Paisley League tie last week.

As was the case in their last game, Antonine, playing at home, started slowly and Andy Carroll had to make a save after two minutes.

Eight minutes in a ball was played through to the Annick attacker, with Antonine claiming offside, the referee played on and the striker made it 1-0 to Annick.

Carroll then had to make a couple of saves to keep the scoreline down. Gradually Antonine came back into the game, Lewis Smith firing just over. The away keeper then dropped a Brendan Kelly cross but Dom Cairney’s effort was blocked, the keeper then pulled off another save.

Half-time 1-2.

Antonine were in total control now and were constantly probing the away side. A header from Smith went just over.

Shaun Quinn also came close, then on the 70 minute mark a flowing move involving five players had Cairney beat two players and fire across goal. Lewis Smith forced home the equaliser.

On 80 minutes Smith beat two defenders and was just about to shoot when the defender pulled him down but the referee waved play on, With four minutes remaining Antonine didn’t deal with an Annick corner and they managed to scramble the ball home to regain the lead.

Antonine then showed tremendous character to equalise within in a minute, Danny Hamilton beat two players and his cross was bundled home by Lewis Smith to make it 3-3.

In the last three minutes Antonine created three chances as they went all out for the victory. Lewis Smith, Danny Hamilton and Harry Shaw all came close but there was to be no more scoring.

Stewarton Annick dominated for 25 minutes but Antonine were on top the rest of the game, but for some poor decisions might have won it comfortably.

Antonine: Carroll, Maciver, Kelly, Quinn, Milller, Hutton, Cairney, Mckendrick, James, Donaghy, Smith, Maxwell, Shaw, Hamilton.

Man of Match: Dom Cairney.
