Fixture: Milton v Riverside Athletic
Competition: U14's Forth Valley FDL
Venue: Bannockburn High School
League Cup duty this week with a trip to Bannockburn High. With both teams under strength, Milton started the game with only ten men.
This didn't seem to affect them as they went one up after only five minutes with a move down the middle. Athletic hit back though with an absolute screamer of a free kick from Aarron S who from all of 30 yards out shot past the Milton keeper.
Despite having some good possession the boys struggled to find any clear cut chances to go ahead before the break.
With an enforced change at half time with Harry coming on for the sick Callum P, the formation was changed to a more attacking one as we felt the game was there for the taking.
Unfortunately this backfired as Milton went ahead after a good move down the right, followed shortly afterwards with a third which saw their striker chip Alex.
A slight rally for the last ten minutes saw some good wing play from Daniel provide a couple of half chances but a combination of poor final ball and lack of shooting saw Milton hold out for the victory.
