West Park leave it late against Eastend Colts

Written by  West Park United Navy

 
Fixture: Eastend Colts v West Park United Navy
Competition: U13's CSFA "B" League
Date: 11/04/15
 
United struck twice in the last five minutes to grind out a win against a battling Eastend Colts team on Saturday.
 
Neither team could gain the upper hand in the opening stages although Murphy came close for Park when his header from a McKay corner was cleared off the line. 
 
Eastend took the lead on 21 minutes when a long range strike beat McGregor in goal. Park were controlling possession but with no end product they trailed at the half-time whistle.  
 
The second half began and United levelled the score when Smith struck after an Allan effort crashed off the underside of the bar. 
 
A freak hailstorm soon halted play as players, officials and parents were forced to take cover from the elements. 
 
Only minutes later however, the sun was splitting the Coatbridge sky and Park changed formation to three strikers as they pushed for the victory. 
 
The visitors hard work paid off when a great pass from Ure released Allan clear to fire home. 
 
The points were sealed in injury time when Ure was hauled down in the box, and he converted the penalty to make the final score 3-1.
 
Full Time : Eastend Colts 1-3 West Park United Navy
