Ten man Ants showed a lot of character and determination to come out on top on a dreary day at Rosebank Park. The Ants took the lead in the 18th minute when a McGrory free kick found the head of SHAUN GALLACHER who gave the keeper no chance as he powered the ball into the bottom left hand corner to put the Ants 0-1 ahead, however the small bunch of travelling Ants fans and committee had their head in the hands a minute later, A mistake saw Austin have to sprint from his line to get to the ball from just outside of his box with a sliding tackle but the ball landed to the feet of LOGAN ANGUS 40 yards from goal and he fired the ball into the empty net with Austin unable to get back in his goal on time to level the score at 1-1. Worse was to come from an Ants perspective when 10 minutes later Lugar took the lead, this time LEWIS KERR smashed the ball from fully 35 yards past Austin to put Lugar 2-1 ahead. Five minutes before the break the Ants were level again when SHAUN GALLACHER got on the end of another McGrory free kick to lash the ball past Graham for his and the Ants second to level the match at 2-2.

Half Time – Lugar 2 v 2 Ants

The second half was barely a minute old when Marshall sent KAMIL LESZCZYNSKI through on goal with a defender in close proximity, the Polish hitman shrugged off the defender before rounding Graham and rolling the ball into the empty net to put the Ants back into the lead. Once again however the Ants couldn’t hold onto their lead for more than 2 minutes when a deep free kick rebounded off an Ants defender in the 6 yard box right into the path of CHRISTOPHER HUNTER who could barely believe his luck as he fired past Austin to make it 3-3. The Ants were then reduced to 10 men when McIlvaney was somehow shown a red card for a tackle that the ref had deemed to be serious foul play, much to McIlvaney and most people in the grounds surprise and those of an Ants persuasion would have been forgiven for thinking it wasn’t going to be their day however in the 77th minute super sub ANDREW TURNER twisted and turned in the box before sending the keeper the wrong way to give the Ants a 3-4 lead which this time they managed to hold onto despite being a man short
