  • Tain Thistle 1-1 Cromarty

    Turning up with only ten players, a valiant effort from Cromarty saw them defend well in a first half which saw Tain Thistle consistently attack their goal for 45 minutes.<br /><br />After four minutes Darran Goller hit the crossbar, before curling a shot wide moments later. Thistle thought they had scored shortly after with a header that appeared to be over the line and in the net but referee Gary McCarthy waved play on.<br /><br />A Rostock header went over and Goller again was unsuccessful with a shot saved by Maclean on the half hour mark. From a free kick, Chris Mailley came close with an effort and the resultant rebound before Rostock had a shot blocked on the line. Incredibly, the score finished 0-0 at half time, with goalkeeper Stephen Wemyss for the Jags finding the evening awfully quiet.<br /><br />Amazingly, from the start of the second half, Cromarty kicked into gear and found themselves 1-0, hitting Thistle on the counter to cut a shot back for Gordon Thompson to score.<br /><br />Paul Cowie hit straight back from the home side to make it 1-1 within a few minutes, however it was back to the drawing board as a resilient Cromarty side held on for the draw.<br /><br />Durrand had a shot destined for the top corner stopped by Maclean, and Cowie again looked like scoring - but the packed defence of the Black Isle men kept their resolve the game ended at 1-1.<br /><br /><b>Team:</b><br />Wemyss, Durrand, Johnston, Mailley, Farquhar, Cowie, Munro, Rostock, Goller, Maclellan (Matheson), Ripley<br /><br /><b>Goals:</b><br />Cowie 55
