Juniors lose to last minute penalty

Posted on Saturday, April 28th, 2012

The Juniors lost 2 – 1 to Whitburn in a league match today.
We took the lead in the 28th minute. A great Chris Millican was taken down well by Lee Zavaroni and he crossed for Adam Perry to knock the ball home. Whitburn pulled one back just before the break when slack marking allowed their centre forward to lob the ball into the net.
Whitburn had most of the ball as the game progressed but we might have scored when Chris beat his man wide and hit the keeper than than a cut back which would have left Michael Dick with a tap in. Murray Jackson did pull off two great saves for us as the minutes ticked down then in the final minute the ref saw a push by Connor Armstrong which no-one else seemed to and pointed to the spot. The Whitburn no 9 scored his second to put Whitburn in a great position at the top of the league. A good performance by us and unlucky not to pick up a point.
Team: Jackson, Kidd, Boyes, Armstrong, Sclater, Millican, Cunningham, Hunter, Rusin, Perry (Dick 78), Zavaroni subs not used Hair, Thomson
