Torry Utd 6 – 2 ARI Thistle

1st Touch Football Division Two (North) at Tullos on Saturday 21st August

Torry Utd got their first win of the season beating ARI comfortably at home.

ARI started the better team, pushing forward and forcing Torry defenders to make mistakes but could not take advantage. With eleven minutes gone ARI’s Whyte beat two men and his fierce shot was pushed round the post by Torry keeper Clark at full stretch.

Torry’s first opportunity came minutes later when Innes’ long range shot slipped past the upright.

ARI should have gone ahead when Gidemann’s slack pass back to his keeper was collected by ARI’s Baldwin and with only the keeper to beat his shot went wide of the target.

In twenty six minutes Torry’s Chris Clark made a run down the right, crossed to Kieron Innes who beat keeper Milne with a right foot drive.

Half-time: 1-0

The second half started with ARI’s Dan Constable levelling the score in forty six minutes.

Five minutes later Constable got his head to a free kick and keeper Clark pushed for a corner. Torry were awarded a penalty when keeper Milne pulled down Scott in the box. This was converted by Gordon Wright.

Gordon Wright was on the score sheet again when he headed past keeper Milne from a corner.

Torry were running riot and in sixty five minutes Mark Munro ran through unchallenged and beat keeper Milne from six yards.

ARI pulled one back in sixty nine minutes when a cross from the right was met by Scott Baldwin whose header found the net.

Five minutes from time Torry’s Kieron Innes made it 5-2 and two minutes later Kieron Innes‘ long distance shot found the corner of the net making the final score 6-2.
