Wayside 1, Spartak 2

Spartak came away with three points from an entertaining Friday night astro clash.

Wayside edged possession in the first half, but Spartak smashed two off the bar and scored.

Owen Marron cut inside and fired off the crossbar, while Niall Hanratty had a good shot also shudder the frame of the goal. In between, Billy O’Neill volleyed in sweetly from Steve Grier’s flick on, midway through the first half. One of Spartak’s better moves saw Amin Afsar fire wide of the near post after good work from Niall Hanratty and Owen Marron.

Ian Harmon and Steve Grier had snuffed out most home attacks, and Wayside failed to overly trouble Jason Northey.

Stuart Love, stretching, was just over iwth a header form Amin Afsar’s cross, while Niall Hanratty fired over after exchanging passes with Owen Marron.

On 67 minutes a Neil McGowan cross was turned into his own net by a home defender to make it 2.0.

A harshly awarded penalty gave Jason Northey the chance to shine, making a triple save before Stuart Love completed the clearance. Wayside then fired one in from the edge of the box to set up a late flurry. With all subs used, Niall Hanratty had to limp out the final few minutes as Spartak held firm.
