  • Cromarty 3-2 Tain Thistle

    The long trip up to Cromarty ended in a 3-2 defeat after five first half goals and an outstanding goalkeeping display from Tain's Number 1.<br /><br />John Maclellan found the net after his shot was deflected past the Cromarty stopper after only nine minutes giving the Jags a dream start, but the goal was quickly cancelled out minutes later by Aaron Henderson after Allan had saved from Ruari Rogan.<br /><br />At 1-1, Thistle then found themselves on the backfoot, Phil Macdonald shooting wide after capitalising on a defensive slip up. Cromarty eventually found the net through Rogan to go 2-1 up.<br /><br />A Jags equalizer was soon to follow as the Cromarty goalkeeper wiped out Darran Goller in the box. A penalty was awarded but amazingly the keeper walked away without a caution. Liam Rostock converted to make it 2-2.<br /><br />Minutes before half time however, Rogan punished Thistle again, slotting past Allan despite the keeper's best efforts to parry an earlier shot.<br /><br />An outstanding game long performance was continued by 15 year old keeper Johnny Allan as he kept Thistle in with a shout of finding an equalizer in the second half. The goal however, never came, despite a shot from Kevin Graham which found its way over the bar and a crossbar rattler from Liam Rostock. Darran Goller was last to stab at goal with a shot just wide of the post into the side netting. Alas, the score remained 3-2 to the home side.<br /><br /><b>Team:</b><br />Allan, Durrand (Mackay 81), Johnston, Farquhar, Brand, Graham, Cowie, Rostock, Goller (Wemyss 81), Matheson (Nimmons 81), Maclellan<br /><br /><b>Goals:</b><br />Maclellan 9, Rostock pen 36<br /><br /><b>Bookings:</b><br />Wemyss 86<br /><br /><b>Man of the Match:</b><br />Johnny Allan
