  • Jags break records with Eastern Rose destruction

    Scoring fifteen times, Tain Thistle recorded their highest ever winning margin as members of the Ross-shire Welfare league against strugglers Eastern Rose in Portmahomack tonight.<br /><br /><img class="imgright" src="http://www.tainthistle.co.uk/news/data/upimages/lamont2015.jpg">John Maclellan scored twice in the opening ten minutes to kick things off. He netted a third on 15 minutes but the goal was chalked off for offside. Mark Lamont netted Thistle's third. A bizarre lapse in concentration saw the scoreline reduced when Martyn Farquhar inexplicably passed the ball into his own net under no pressure from the opposition attack, but it wasn't long before Tain reaffirmed their lead, Maclellan finally completing his hat-trick, scoring after 23 minutes to make it 4-1. A stunning strike from Craig Munro shortly after, hitting the top corner after a square ball from Lamont made it 5-1 and Alan Duff completed the first half scoring to net a sixth from just outside the box.<br /><br />A laboured start to the second half saw no further scoring until just before the hour mark, when Alan Mair turned the ball into his own net, and Mark Lamont scored one minute later to make it 7-1. Arron Christie and Dean Ross both scored for the Jags either side of further goals for Lamont, as the striker went on to net seven times to etch his name in the Tain Thistle record books for most goals scored in a game.<br /><br />The 15-1 win narrowly beats the Jags' previous record win of 15-2 (recorded against Social Club in 2010) and earned them three points in the league, as they continue to dominate proceedings, staying eight points of clear of nearest rivals Fortrose Union, who were awarded a forfeit win tonight against Social Club.<br /><br /><b>Team:</b><br />Cormack, Cameron, M Farquhar, A Christie, Murray, Mackintosh, Munro, Duff (Scott), D Christie (D Ross), Lamont, Maclellan (Rostock)<br /><br /><b>Subs not used:</b><br />I Ross, R Ross<br /><br /><b>Goals:</b><br />Maclellan 2, 10, 23, Lamont 12, 60, 71, 72, 77, 84, pen 86, Munro 27, Duff 42, Mair o.g. 59, A Christie 69, D Ross 80
