After 2 successive defeats, EK Avondale Men's 2nds bounced back with a win in their home game with Ayr at Duncanrig on Saturday. In truth though this was not a totally convincing performance against understrength visitors.
EK took the lead in the opening moments, as Chris Fabian tucked home from close range, and before long the home side were two up, Richard Doherty netting from the top of the circle. The home back line was largely under employed but had to be on their guard to deal with occasional breakaways from Ayr’s pacy forwards. At the other end further goals from Doherty and John Bradley put the home side in a seemingly unassailable position, before Ayr exposed defensive frailties to pull one back.
