Maud travelled to face Dufftown fell chance fell to Maud when a through ball from Chicken found Zak who fired high from a tight angle. McIntosh in the home goal did well to punch clear when under pressure from Smart. A Cooper free was well defended then Smart had the ball in the net but he was offside. Thomson blazed a free kick from 20 yards well over the bar. Half an hour gone, and a Cooper strike was deflected wide from a corner. In it came and was well defended by Watson at the near post. Just on half time Watson made an important block from a Conway shot.
HT 0- 0
Into the second half and Maud upped the tempo and soon has Dufftown pinned in. Shots by Chicken and Smart were well blocked by Watson and Bowie. Smart surged into the box and was brought down and he got up to take the penalty and sent the keeper the wrong way. It was soon too be 2 nil after Smart jumped with keeper McIntosh and the ball fell to Conway and his shot went in off the post for Maud to lead by two goals. A rare attack by Dufftown saw Fyfe off his line to block from Bowie. Maud controlled the second half from start to finish. A good team performance which sets them up nicely for the visit of Nairn.
Maud next fixture is on Saturday 20 April Home v Nairn st Nairn in the McBookie.com Superleague with a 2pm ko.
