HT 1– 3
A strange start to the second half came when one lineman couldn’t continue, they eventually got started after 18 minutes for Maud to put a lines person on the far side Maud came out strong in the second half and pinned Nairn in their own half. Wilkie got down low to his left to make a brilliant save from a Robertson drive. Maud drove forward and some slick passing involving 6 players resulted in another Wilkie save. The pressure finally told when Quantrill first time shot found the net after a fine through ball from Park. Ritchie kept Maud in with a chance after he saved from Mulligan. Chicken earned Maud a corner which Conway swung across and it need a further save from Wilkie when it looked like fining the top corner of the net. A final chance came when Robertson played in Conway on the right but Wilkie was out quick to block. A much improved second period for Maud who deserved a share of the points but not to be.
