Maud rue missed chances
Maud travelled to Dyce in a league game and poor defending from the visitors let Leith in with a shot which went wide. Maud had a great chance to go in front when Smart turned his marker inside the box but his shot brought a fine save Horne in the home goals. The visitors had the ball in the net but was ruled offside. McAllister went close with a header from a Yeats cross. Maud had a let off when they failed to clear their lines but Bartlett couldn't get enough on his shot and the chance was gone. A Whyte cross along the 6 yard box found no takers in the middle. The home side went in front on 35 minutes when a corner taken by Murray was headed in at the front post by McAllister. Two minutes before half time Dyce doubled their lead when a corner was played short then swung in and Yeats glancing header found the net.
HT 2- 0
The second half started with a Duguid free kick deflected out for a corner which was easily cleared. 55 Minutes and Maud were awarded a penalty when Davidson was pulled to the ground by Murray who received a second yellow and was dismissed. Duguid stepped up to fire home. Horne did well to gather a Wilson shot at the second attempt. A through ball to Smart who was fouled inside the box and won another pen for the visitors. Horne made a fine save from the Duguid penalty. Maud were well on top now and Sculley should have done better with his shot from 12 yards. Substitute striker Falconer should have levelled the game but Horne was quick off his line to save. The home side grabbed a third debatable goal when a shot by Bartlett came back off the post but only half cleared and then a cross came in for Yeats to tap home from a yard. The match official gave offside but then after speaking to his assistant changed his decision and awarded a goal.
FT 3 – 1
This was a game that Maud let slip after the home side went down to 10 men missing a host of chances.
Maud next fixture is on Saturday 5 November away against Culter in the 2nd rd of the GA Engineering Cup with a 2pm ko
