Maud travelled to face Hall Russell United in a league match. First chance fell to Hale whose shot wide of the post. On a break the home striker sent a dangerous ball across the 6 yard bow but there were no takers in the box.  The same move at the other end saw a Duguid cross was just to hard for the attackers to get on the end of.  Duguid went close with a 30-yard free kick which had the keeper Beaton but went narrowly over the bar. The home keeper was in action when Whyte and Norris set a chance for Hale but his header was straight at the home keeper. A Fowlie shot from the edge of the box was saved comfortably just on half time.  HT 0 – 0

Maud started the second half with a Duguid free kick from 20 yards skimming the bar. A break by the home side was wasted when the striker’s shot wind assisted was wildly over the bar. Best chance of the game went to the away side Maud when Norris and Thomson combined to set up Hale who hit the bar from 6 yards and it rebounded to Thomson whose shot was cleared off the line. A Duguid neat turn and shot was fired straight at the keeper. A Fowlie header from a Sergent cross brought a good save. Last chance of the game was to the home side when they broke through the Maud defence, but Barbour came rushing out to block. The match ended with a point each. FT 0 – 0

Maud next fixture is on Saturday 20 January against Longside in the GA Engineering Inter Regional Cup Second Round 1.30 ko.
