  • Rovers overcome the Jags

    In a back and forth match at Tain Royal Academy Community Complex, Tain Thistle lost 3-2 to a feisty Lairg Rovers side last night.<br /><br />Missing key players Daniel Christie and Martyn Farquhar from the draw against Maryburgh, manager Darren Mackay introduced Chris Mailley and Jamie Macdonald to the side.<br /><br />Lairg played effectively on the counter with Thistle having enjoyed most of the early pressure, and took the lead with a shot squeezed in at the near post to make it 1-0. Liam Rostock levelled for Tain on the half hour mark, and the scores remained level for some time. Midway through the second half, Lairg capitalised on a mistake at the back to make it 2-1, but with five minutes remaining Chris Mailley made it 2-2.<br /><br />It seemed as though the game would end a draw until a momentary lapse for the Jags gave Lairg the easiest of goals, as the ball was walked into the net.<br /><br /><b>Team from:</b> R Ross, Davis, Durrand, Brand, Macdonald, Sutherland, Cowie, Mackenzie, Pelka, A Christie, Smith, Goller, Rostock, D Ross, McCourt
