Glenafton Athletic 1-1 Pollok
West of Scotland Superleague
Loch Park, Saturday 30th September 2017
Pollok made it a hat-trick of draws in the League on Saturday, coming away from double winners Glenafton Athletic’s Loch Park with a share of the points after a 1-1 draw.
‘Afton were reduced to ten men in the 28th minute when David Gray’s challenge on Ross Brash was deemed worthy of a straight red card by arbiter Chris Gentles.
The visitors took a 40th minute lead when Mark Sideserf’s Garryowen caused confusion in the home rearguard. Ryan McGregor managed to free the ball from the ensuing melee into the path of Adam Forde who tapped into the empty net.
Parity was restored by the homesters a minute later, Pollok custodian Jordan Longmuir’s weak punch falling to the feet of Ryan McChesney who gratefully accepted.
Glenafton’s best chance after the interval came from Jamie McKernon’s flag kick which Longmuir did well to paw away from underneath his crossbar.
Longmuir’s opposite number, Brian McGarrity, pulled off the save of the match to keep the scores level, springing across to deny Forde’s acrobatic scissor kick, before Del Hepburn placed a shot off the upright.
McGarrity was fortunate moments later when he was beaten in an aerial duel by Stuart McCann, Gentles ruling the ‘Lok substitute’s challenge unfair as the ball nestled in the net.
The final action came in the last minute of regulation time, Hepburn’s run towards the box was unceremoniously halted by McChesney, the Glenafton goalscorer joining team-mate Gray in the early bath.
