Grill League Cup

6th August 2016


Maud: Finn, Sculley, Reid, Crisp, Kirk, Wilson, Thompson, Davidson Smart, Downie, Smith

Subs: Whyte, McDonald, Simpson, Burr, Lawson

The match kicked off on a fine warm day but both sides were struggling to find their passes on a pitch with very long grass.     A cross from Reid was spilled by McKendrick but he gathered at the second attempt. Maud went in front when Crisp played a clever through ball and Smith lashed home. Smith then turned provider when his free kick was met by Kirk but it went high over the bar. Ryan Smart added a second from close after a neat flick by Kirk. A third goal arrived after a good move ended with a Gary Davidson drive from edge of the box finding the bottom corner. Before half time Maud extended their lead when Smart finished off a fine cross by Wilson.          HT 0 – 4

At the start of the second half Maud wasted a couple of good chances then minutes later a fifth goal arrived when a ball into the box was laid back to Davidson and he fired it low into the net for his second goal of the game. Kirk should have done better with his header from a Reid corner. A fine cross by Whyte deflected off Downie and the home keeper made a fine reaction save. A rare attack from the home side finished with a shot from Lechner going close. At the other end Smart had three chances with header's but got none on target. Sculley was in on goal but took too long to get his shot away and the defence got back to block. Simpson could only head straight into the arms of McKendrick from a corner. On another day Maud might have scored a lot more.
