Maud travelled to face inform Bridge of Don Thistle and Maud got off to the worst possible start with an own goal inside 2 minutes. Maud keeper got a let off when Muirhead chased down the keepers kick out and Muirhead put the ball wide with the goal gaping. At the other end a Thomson free kick went narrowly over the bar. Conway tested Stack after a neat turn inside the box but shot straight at the goalkeeper. The home side doubled their lead with a solo goal from Alexander. Muirhead netted a third with a clever lob from edge of the box. A Chicken cross from was met by Conway but his shot was deflected wide for a corner which was cleared by Simpson.
Maud started the second half with Mackie replacing Walker giving Maud 2 up front. The away side started better with Thomson firing a free kick high from 20 yards. A good move involving Mackie and Norris on the wing and his cross was just too hard for Conway to get on the end of. Chicken sent on a dangerous cross for Whyte to head over. From a corner Lawson failed to get his header on target. Cromar came close to adding number 4 but his shot rattled the post. Alexander completed the scoring with an easy goal coming from a long throw in by Taylor. This was a tough game and too many errors from the away side let them down. Maud would like to wish striker Ryan Smart a speedy recovery after a bad fall in training landing him in Hospital with a bad head injury.
Maud next fixture is on Saturday 12 January away v Colony Park in the McBookie.com Superleague with a 1.30pm ko.
