Mechanics U13  2 - 3  Fort William U13

 

In an entertaining game at Sanquhar, the Cans' babes hit the post in the opening period, gave Fort William a three goal start after an hour and then almost clawed back the deficit in a pulsating final fifteen minute spell.

 

The Forres' goals were contrasting efforts, both of high quality and came from Sean Melloy and Lee Rigby.  The first came about from the forward's alertness as he pounced on some slack work in the Fort defence, drew the keeper and cooly slotted home.  The second was from a well flighted free kick with the centre back timing his run perfectly across keeper and defence to finish with a delightful flick of his right boot. The youngsters also had a strong claim for a penalty denied in a frantic end to the game.

 

There were high quality performances all round with Jack Miller in midfield and full backs Toby Clark and Callum McCreadie prominent.
