Under 12 Football v West Barns
Result: West Barns 0 : 1 Belhaven Hill
As last term’s affair, today’s match was a tightly-fought game won by the odd goal. Belhaven started on the attack from the off and scored in the second minute and surprisingly enough that was the end of the scoring. Belhaven dominated possession in the first half and spent long periods encamped in the West Barns half without creating any real clear-cut chances.
The second half was a different affair as Belhaven played against the wind and slope and faced in to the sun and it was a much more equal game. Jamie was called in to action to produce a beautiful, flying save and again Belhaven were guilty of not finishing off. In the very last minute Belhaven almost gifted the draw to West Barns as a ball was played across the penalty area by one centre-back to another and only the width of the post stopped the bobbling ball from bouncing in, instead going wide.
Yet another fabulous performance from both team and the West Barns boys Michael, Ewan, Sandy, James and Taylor al deserve mentions here.
Men of the Match: Joe for peerless control and breaking up of attacks and José for always posing a danger going forward.
