GLENS and Talbot both marched on in the Ardagh Glass League Cup last night.

Both sides were in quarter final action last night (Wednesday August 27) with Talbot edging a close game against Maybole and Glens going all the way to the dreaded penalty shootout with Whitletts Victoria.

Tommy Sloan’s Talbot side hosted Maybole and helped themselves to a 2-1 victory thanks to a brace from Graham Wilson.

Glens keeper Brian McGarrity was the hero as he saved FOUR spotkicks in the penalty shootout.

Tommy Bryce’s side were very nearly embarrassed by the Ayrshire District outfit as they came from behind twice to snatch a draw and force the shootout.

The Glens were 1-0 down at the break but levelled thanks to Pat Walker.

Glens then fell behind again and were still chasing the game in to stoppage time.

The returning Alain Kinney fired the Glens level at the death as his 94th minute strike sealed a last gasp equaliser.

Kinney’s strike ensured a penalty shootout to decide who advanced to the semi final.

Glens prevailed with 2-0 win in the shootout thanks to converted kicks by Adam Strachan and Jamie McKernon despite Craig McEwan’s earlier effort crashing off of the cross bar.

Glens hero McGarrity saved all four spot kicks from Wallace, Allan, Love and O’Connor.

Talbot now have a semi final next Wednesday night against either Hurlford or Largs whilst Glens face either Kilbirnie or Irvine Meadow the same night. Both matches have a 6.30pm kick off time.
