It was a comfortable victory for Cumbernauld in the u17 SYFA central region cup final despite their opposition making life difficult at many times throughout the game at Stenhousemuir which finished 4-1 against Moorlands BC.
A brace from Cameron Mckay, a penalty from Ryan Milne and a goal from Michael McGarahan put the Colts 4-0 up in what was a commanding and clinical performance. Dean Robertson pulled a consolation goal back for Moorlands but in the end they were defeated despite putting up a good fight.
Moorlands had the first opportunity of the game from a set piece, McNulty’s corner was met by the head of Marc Skelton and his header was just wide. Not the first time Moorlands would threaten from set pieces in this game.
However Cumbernauld gave a sign of things to come when McGarahan headed Cameron McKay’s free kick onto the crossbar in the 26th minute. Four minutes later they had the first goal of the match. Connor McAteer’s cross was knocked down to Sam Rodger by Cameron McKay whose shot was well blocked by the Moorlands defence, but Boys Club could not stop McKay following up with the rebound from the block and his shot was finessed into the far corner.
Cumbernauld were on top and they had a plethora of chances before half time, notably McKay’s who took McGarahan’s corner on the full volley with excellent technique. Unfortunately for him the ball did not fly into the back of the net but the Colts were on top as the half-time whistle blew.
