Ayrfield 2, Spartak 3

An early 2-0 lead gave the Sky Blues the platform for this victory.

Mo Sheleg’s cross was met by Cian Stenson, and when the keeper could only parry, Mick Leslie made no mistake from six yards.

Mick Leslie made it two with a fine header form Owen Marron’s cross. Spartak remained in control of the first half, with Stuart Love wide from good position, although Niall Hanratty was forced to make a sharp save.

The home side replied immediately after the break, and then might have equalised when Owen Marron’s misplaced pass inadvertently put the striker through, only to lob over the crossbar.

Owen Marron took advantage of a goalkeeper error to prod in the third, and chances thereafter were evenly distributed. Mick Leslie had a good opportunity but could not complete his hattrick, while Dave Browne made a vital block. Ayrfield got a second close to the end, but the Sky Blues held firm
