The Ants 2019/20 season got off to a nightmare start as they were hit for six away to Renfrew in the Sectional League Cup group 7.
Renfrew opened the scoring in the 15th minute when slack play at the back allowed McKenna to find Jordan Davidson unmarked in the middle and he slammed the ball past Wright. The Ants almost hit back but Leszczynski’s effort cannoned back off the bar and was cleared to safety. With 31 minutes on the clock the home side doubled their lead when a ball over the top saw a shot blocked by the Ants defence but landed to Craig Dallas who’s deflected shot made it 2-0 to the home side after 27 minutes. It was 3-0 after 35 minutes hitting the Ants on the counter attack after Taylor’s shot was saved and a cross found the head of Scott Morton who headed home only four minutes after replacing McKenna through injury.
HALF TIME RENFREW 3 v 0 ANTS
The Ants had barely got started in the second half when they found themselves 4 goals down when Sean McCall sent a looping cross-come-shot over the head of Wright and into the top corner. With 65 minutes on the clock it was 5-0 when the ball hit of Scott Morton in the box after a shot by McIntosh and went into the net despite Jack McIlvaney’s efforts to stop it on the line. Williams forced McLeay into a good save from a free kick as the Ants tried to give their small band of supporters something at least to cheer but it was to no avail as Scott Morton grabbed his third and Renfrew’s sixth as he got on the end of a cross in injury time.
