Grill League Cup

7th August 2018


Maud Junior Football Club

Maud: Fyfe, Kinsella, Whyte, Thornton, Crisp, Thomson, Ritchie, Mair, Smart, Sargent, Kennedy

The home side started the game better and created a good chance for Masson but Fyfe was sharp off his goal line to block. After the first 15 minutes played Maud started to control the game and a Thomson shot was cleared off the line. A ball down the line by Thornton to Sargent who cut in but fired high over the bar. Ritchie and Sargent both tried shots from distance but none troubled the home keeper Pirie. A floated cross come shot nearly caught out the home keeper but he managed to tip the ball over the bar. A quick break by Maud ended with A Thomson header which was just over the bar. Maud then went close with a header coming back off the crossbar. The visitor’s went in front when Mair picked the ball up inside the Hearts half and he drove past a couple, then cut in and his shot found the corner of the net.                              HT 0 – 1  

The second half started and a Cooper shot was saved at the expenses of a corner. The ball was swung in and Pirie went to collect but dropped the ball at the feet of Midfield man Thomson who had an easy finish. A great run by whyte deserved better when his cross went right along the 6 yard box but there were no takers in the middle. A rare attack by the home side should have led to a goal but Masson and Ferensas managed between them to put the ball past the post. From another corner the ball looked goal bound but Ritchie was on hand to head clear. A Cooper free kick from 18 yards was wasted fining high. A good run by Cooper and his cut back was straight Sargent who scuffed his shot wide. Maud were then awarded a penalty for afoul inside the home penalty box. Up stepped Kennedy and fire home seal another win. FT -0 - 3
