  • Bunillidh Thistle 3-2 Tain Thistle

    In the only league game of the day (due to the Port Services Cup 1st Round), it took a 90th minute goal to beat a rejuvenated Tain Thistle. In their best performance of the season so far, Tain were 2-1 up with 25 minutes remaining, but two errors led to the Helmsdale side stealing a win, giving the Jags their 5th consecutive defeat.<br /><br />With the first half wind on their side, Tain took the lead after only 2 minutes, through a low driven free kick by Arron Christie, giving the left back his first goal of the season. 1-0 up, Tain kept the pressure on, but a controversial penalty allowed Bunillidh back into the game just before the quarter hour.<br /><br />The decision did not affect Thistle's intent however, and following a series of attacks the visitors were able to take the lead again, this time with a header, scored by centre half Gordon Duff, putting Tain 2-1 ahead.<br /><br />Starting the second half in the lead, Tain kept the pressure on, using the runs of Colin Burry and Darran Goller when possible. Just after the hour mark, disaster struck. A miscommunication at the back led to an opportunistic effort from the home side, which saw the ball loop over the head of goalkeeper Barry Nimmons to make it 2-2.<br /><br />With everything to play for, Tain fought the game to the end only for disaster to strike in the final minute of the game. A killer through ball carried by the Helmsdale wind gave Bunillidh's Ron MacDonald a chance that he couldn't miss, and he casually slotted the ball home with ease, to give the home side a 3-2 win.<br /><br />The unfortunate defeat leaves Tain at the bottom of the table, still in search of their first points of the campaign.
