  • Thistle dumped out of Cordiner Cup

    <img class="imgleft" align="left" alt="" src="http://www.tainthistle.co.uk/news/data/upimages/invertainccup.jpg">Inver sensationally dumped defending champions Tain Thistle out of the Cordiner Cup today, after coming back from 2-0 down to blast seven past their rivals, advancing to the semi final.<br /><br />With Arron Christie, Daniel Christie, Colin Burry, Liam Rostock and Martyn Farquhar all missing from the first team, with Ryan Johnston, Craig Nimmons, Brian Cameron returning to the starting eleven. David Nimmons also returned to the bench, while Brian MacRitchie was also called into the squad for the first time.<br /><br />The opener, and the goal of the game came from Ryan Johnston of Tain who gave Thistle a 1-0 lead after only 5 minutes with a 25 yard shot looped over the top of Inver stopper Gary Mackay. Garry Perks continued the scoring before the twenty minute mark, scoring on the rebound after co-striker Robbie Ross shot at Mackay, to make it 2-0 for Thistle.<br /><br />Craig Nimmons could very well have made it three before the half hour mark but action at the other end delivered the third goal of the afternoon as Paul Austin's deflected effort found its way into Martin's net to make it 2-1.<br /><br />Inver found themselves 3-2 up at half time following a comeback that left Thistle looking ragged at the back; goals from Chris Mailley and Lewis Ross giving Inver the lead.<br /><br />The second half continued as the first had ended with a determined Inver finding it all too easy to break though the Thistle defence. Paul Austin added a second before Ashley Mills made it 5-2. A sixth followed soon after with former Tain man Andrew Durrand netting a rebound. Substitute Russell Ferguson rounded off the score with minutes remaining to make it 7-2.<br /><br />The win for Inver knocks Tain out of the Cordiner Cup.<br /><br /><b>Team:</b><br />Martin, Rice, Cowie, Johnston, Nimmons, Oliver, Cameron, Goller, Perks, C Nimmons (Sutherland), Ross<br /><br /><b>Subs not used:</b><br />D Nimmons, MacRitchie, Maclellan<br /><br /><b>Goals:</b><br />Johnston 5, Perks 19<br /><br /><b>Bookings:</b><br />Rice, Oliver<br /><br /><b>Match details:</b><br /><a href="http://www.tainthistle.co.uk/stats/matchdetails.php?id=400">http://www.tainthistle.co.uk/stats/matchdetails.php?id=400</a>
