Cliftonville 0-1 Glentoran
Hamilton holds the CIS Cup aloft
Gary Hamilton celebrates after Saturday's triumph
A 31st-minute Gary Hamilton goal gave Glentoran victory in the CIS Cup final.

Elliott Morris made good early saves from Chris Scannell and Gary Kennedy before Hamilton rounded the goalkeeper and scored from a narrow angle for 1-0.

Willo McDonagh was lucky to escape with a booking for a two footed challenge on Ronan Scannell on 33 and Davy McAlinden and Mark Holland both headed just wide.

George McMullan, Gary Kennedy and Chris Scannell went close after the break and Jason Hill had a chance for the Glens.

Morris denied Chris Scannell's 20-yard shot after five minutes and then had to dive full stretch to push Kennedy's curling shot round the post ten minutes later.

John Connolly dropped the ball from a long clearance out of the Glentoran defence on 24 minutes but Keith O'Hara was on hand to clear the danger.

Connolly had little trouble in dealing with tame headed efforts from Cullen Feeney and McDonagh.

Hamilton produced a fine finish for his 17th goal of the season but two minutes later McDonagh was fortunate to receive just a yellow card for a foul on Scannell after having also stamped on Conor Downey's thigh earlier in the game.

McAlinden wasted a glorious chance to equalise when he headed wide from an unmarked position after meeting a right wing cross.

Holland was wide with another headed attempt from a George McMullan delivery.

Morris saved well from McMullan and Kennedy and Chris Scannell headed wide from another McMullan cross with ten minutes remaining.

Jason Hill could have extended his side's lead but was high and wide with a left foot shot while a sidefooted effort from Michael Halliday was well cleared by O'Hara.
