Grandholm 2 – 3 Auchnagatt Barons

Division Three at Inverdee on Monday 10th August

Grandholm started badly losing a goal to Auchnagatt Barons in two minutes when a cross from the left let Steven Milne fire in a shot that beat keeper McPherson.

Ten minutes later Barons were unlucky when Milne’s shot bobbled in front of the keeper but the keeper managed to get a hand to it and pushed it for a corner. Barons were pushing forward and had Grandholm’s defence in trouble several times but keeper McPherson was at his best frustrating the Barons’ strikers.

Grandholm finally settled and started to pass the ball about and in twenty five minutes were rewarded when from a throw in the ball went to John Calder who broke through Baron’s defence and gave keeper Gray no chance with a fierce shot.

The game was flowing from end to end but neither team could make the break through and the score remained 1-1 at half time.

Half-time: 1-1

On the hour mark Barons went ahead when Ben Drummond broke away and scored from twelve yards 1-2. Barons’ lead lasted for two minutes before Gareth Thomson beat three men and blasted the ball past keeper Gray 2-2.

With fifteen minutes left Barons’ Gary Main scored from close range after rounding a defender and slipping the ball under the diving keeper McPherson. Grandholm tried hard to get back on level terms but could not break down the Barons’ defence.

Full Time: 2-3
