  • Thistle complete Social double header

    Tain Thistle made it two wins in five days over Invergordon Social Club tonight with a 4-2 league win to follow their 8-1 victory in the Coronation Cup 1st Round this past Saturday.<br /><br />The Saturday game saw Liam Rostock return to scoring form with four goals against the Invergordon side as well as a hat-trick for Alan Duff, who completed his treble with a penalty kick in the first half to see the Jags leading 4-1 at half time. A goal from Darran Goller took the tally to eight as Thistle won at a canter to advance to the semi-final of the Coronation Cup.<br /><br />Tonight, the same starting eleven took the field and it took them only ten minutes to open the scoring with some excellent team play. Taking the ball inside from Arron Christie, Liam Rostock played an incisive pass back to the left midfielder. Christie, with precision, played the ball into the box for Martin Smith to take a final touch and side foot the ball home.<br /><br />Thistle doubled their lead on thirty minutes when Brian Cameron's speculative effort into the box was turned into the net by Social's Number 3. <br /><br />A lapse at the back handed Social a life line as James McGroarty pulled a goal back just before the break, but Liam Rostock, heading the ball home from a free kick, restored the two goal advantage ten minutes after the restart. <br /><br />An injury to Niall McVicar saw the Thistle defence forced into some immediate changes, and the Invergordon men were quick to capitalise, forcing a save from Johnny Allan before scoring on the rebound. The reduced deficit was short lived though as Rostock scored once again, pouncing on a loose ball from a corner to make it 4-2, and 7 goals in 3 games.<br /><br /><b>Team:</b><br />Allan, McVicar, Duff, Davis (Brand), A Christie, Cameron (Sutherland), Farquhar (Cowie), D Christie, Smith, Goller, Rostock<br /><br /><b>Sub not used:</b><br />Durrand<br /><br /><b>Goals:</b><br />Smith 10, Cameron 30, Rostock 55, 79
