Belhaven Hill 3 - 5 Craigclowan

The seconds’ first match of the season was very much a game of two halves.  Belhaven went 1-0 up in the first minute of the match with Louis smashing home from a short corner but this lasted no time as Craigclowan came back to level.  An excellent dribble from the irrepressible Jack took the home side 2-1 up and Alexander M. further extended this lead with a firm shot from the edge of the D.  Craigclowan pulled a goal back before half-time and Kit was forced into four or five good saves but otherwise Belhaven were good value for their money.

Sadly this momentum was not carried into the second half.  With Kit moving over to the A-team’s match for the second-half Archie came in and unfortunately shipped three goals from the only three chances the visiting team had.  Try as we might, and having several penalty corners we could not beat the impressive Craigclowan goalkeeper.  Some of us were caught out of position trying to be defenders, leaving the back open which didn’t help matters.

 

 

Man of the Match: Jack for strong dribbling and attacking whilst covering his team-mates when they were out of position.
