Maud welcomed Montrose Roselea in a league match and it was played in a very strong wind which didn't help things. First chance fell to Maud when Smart could only shoot straight at McLeod in the away goals. Maud then had a couple of scares when a scramble in the box was eventually cleared then a Rae shot from palmed away by Fyfe. McLeod pulled off a fine stop when a Chicken corner was headed goalwards by Crisp. Maud's next attack saw a Chicken drive going narrowly past the post after some good work by R Thomson
The second half started, and the visitors went ahead when a break down the right by Thomson and his cross was met at the back post by Grieg who lashed home the opening goal. Grieg then missed a good chance to double the away side lead but fired wide from a ball from Rae. The play went from end to end with neither side creating any chances. The home side were soon down to 10 men after Conway was sent off. Maud made changes towards the end but failed to create any further openings for the home side. This was a disappointing result for the home side after winning their last 2 league games. This was always a game where the first goal would win all 3 points.
Maud next fixture is on Saturday 16 March away v Dyce Juniors in the McBookie.com Superleague with a 2pm ko.
