Stirling and District AFA, Premmier League

After bossing the game last week against this team it was same again this week.

Barrhill should have had two penalties in the first half. Firstly Ross was brought down, but the referee gave a free-kick at the edge of the box. Then Black was pulled down and same result again – a free-kick.

The visitors had some fantastic chances in the first half from Malone. Hopkins, Black and Divine, but failed to take them.

The second half saw Barrhill push Ross up front with Hopkinis. Malone was brought down inside the box and this time the penalty was given, Black making no mistake with the spot kick.

Barrhill’s second came when Ross sent the ball across to Hopkins who coolly scored.

The home team got one back from a long throw-in when Stevenson in goal came for the ball and missed for the striker to tap the ball into the empty net.

That rattled the visitors a wee bit and it took 15 minutes to get them settled again.

Ross made it three with a rasping shot that flew into the net and then young Mclean got the fourth with a great solo effort.

MoM went to Ross.

Barrhill: Stevenson. Malone, Pender, Fulton, McPherson, Black, Byrne, Johnston, Ross, Hopkins and Divine. Subs: Finlayson, O’Neill, McLean and Heeps.
