Action from the Girvan Primary match.

ON THURSDAY last week Girvan Primary School played Forehill Primary in a league and cup double-header at Victory Park.

As two games had to be played it was decided to play two 20-minute games - the first for the league and the second for the cup.

The league game score was 4-2 to Girvan and the semi-final ended up 3-1 to Girvan.

In the league game GIrvan very nearly went ahead with a Callum Skilling header which went just over the crossbar.

Greg McCartney soon broke the deadlock however with a well taken goal.

Sean Millarvie and Josh Cameron played superbly with plenty of well-executed overlap passing. A brace from Callum put Girvan comfortably ahead but Forehill scored a goal to put them back into the game.

Callum then scored again from a goalmouth scramble for his hat-trick but Forehill responded with another goal to give them hope but Girvan held on to win the vital league game.

After a short break the cup game kicked off and a strong response from Forehill resulted with an excellent goal to upt them deservedly ahead.

Girvan were under pressure from a revitalised Forehill and could have gone further behind if not for some excellent goalkeeping from Jack Reid.

However Sean MIllarvie cannoned the ball from the halfway line into the Forehill goal and changed the game completely.

Girvan began to dominate possession and two further goals from Greg McCartney sent Girvan into the Mackie Cup final with a 3-1 scoreline.

Jay Watson came on later as a substitute and Adam Ingram played his debut for the team.

Many thanks to Mrs Clark for refreshments and to all the parents, children and locals who came along to support Girvan.

The final of the Mackie Cup will be played on the evening of Friday, June 15 at Dam Park, Ayr with opponents and time to be confirmed.

Girvan will play Struthers Primary next Thursday and a victory will confirm Girvan as league champions.
