  • Tain Thistle 0-3 Balintore

    Tain Thistle saw their chances of winning the league take a significant blow last night with a 3-0 defeat to rivals Balintore at the Links.<br /><br />Despite chances for both teams, the soon to be retired Alan Stainke opened the scoring with a free header following a Balintore corner just before the half hour mark. Despite Thistle's best efforts to equalize, Ross Henderson in the Balty goal was up to the task, faced with shots from Paul Cowie and Liam Rostock, and soon the Jags found themselves 2-0 down. Caught at the back once again, Andrew Bell found himself through on John Allan to slot past the keeper.<br /><br /><img border="0" align="none" alt="" src="http://www.tainthistle.co.uk/news/data/upimages/tainbalty2012.jpg"><br /><br />The second half started well for Thistle and it looked as if they had reduced the deficit when Darran Goller was through on Henderson, but his strike rattled the near post. Kevin Graham was unlucky not to score shortly. Eventually, the on-form Bell struck again slotting home from a tight angle to make it 3-0. With ten minutes remaining, Goller again struck the woodwork, but it was too little too late for Tain. <br /><br /><b>Team:</b><br />Allan, McVicar (Ross), Graham, A Christie, Farquhar, Munro, Cowie (Matheson), Durrand (Ripley), D Christie, Rostock, Goller<br /><br /><b>Subs not used:</b><br />Johnston<br /><br /><b>Bookings:</b><br />Farquhar, Munro, D Christie, Ross
