Before the game started all the boys from both teams, along with match officials, Coaches and parents, observed a two minute applause. This was in respect for all our fallen military heros for Remembrance Sunday. 
Both teams started brightly with Glenafton coming close in the opening exchanges, striking the Ayr Craigie bar.
Craigie made the breakthrough midway through the first half, with Jordan Fillipi scoring low into the left hand corner from just outside the area. This was a surprise after the Glenafton keeper who was on fire, could not seem to be beaten in goal.
This remained the score till the end of the first half. 
Half Time : Glenafton 0-1 Ayr Craigie
Glenafton started the second half very strongly, pressing the Ayr Craigie defence back deep in their half.
The Glenafton pressure finally paid off when they equalised with a fantastic twenty five yard drive, which gave the Ayr Craigie keeper no chance.
Craigie pressed forward to score a goal worthy of winning any game, when Steven Dempsey beat four players to bend a twenty yard strike into the top corner.
Both teams deserve great praise for such a fantastic game, which show cased excellent football which was a treat to the eye.
Full Time : Glenafton 1-2 Ayr Craigie
