Maud Junior Football Club

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

Subs: Lawson, Kinsella, Mair, Grant, Cooper

Maud started brightly and nearly took the front when a Smart header from a Kennedy cross came back off the post. A corner was swung in and it needed McKinnon to block at his front post. McKinnon was in action again saving from a Sargent shot. Smart wasted a good chance when he was played in on goal, but he took a poor touch and McKinnon gathered. Maud went in front on 28 minutes when a cross by Kennedy was headed at the back post by Donnie Fraser. A Sargent shot from 20 yards went close. On 38 minutes, against the run of play Ewan Clark drew the visitors level ghosting past the Maud defence and fire home.

HT 1 – 1

Six minutes into the second half and the home side was back in front when Smart was on the end of a Hall cross to head home. A Hall free kick was only inches over the bar with the keeper stranded. The visitors had 2 corners in quick succession and McKinnon should have levelled the game but saw his head go over the bar from 6 yards. Maud made sure of the points when a Cooper shot was deflected into the path of Kenny Mair who drilled the ball home.  A slick move involvling one touch football ended with a shot by Thomson going well over the bar.
