The Cowie United 13's side made the short journey to Beechwood Park looking to improve the season as they have been hampered with sickness, injury and lack of layers available to play Saturday Games. On a freezing cold and wet morning they were facing another game with one sub. 
 
However, Cowie did extremely well to come away with a well deserved and well fought victory against a good Stirling Albion side.
 
Cowie United started the game creating a number of opportunities which fell softly to the Albion keeper. 
 
The boys kept the pressure up in the Albion half and the Albion defence made good work of pushing Cowie United back.  
 
Lewis made a great run though on the goal, bringing himself one on one with the keeper, he kept his nerve and cooly slotted the ball past the keeper and took Cowie United into the lead. 
 
Cowie United boys this week were well organised in a change to positions and formation and gave a solid performance.
 
There were a number chances created by an industrious Stirling Albion midfield, but these all were handled superbly by a strong Cowie United and some outstanding saves by Cameron and the whole back line communicating and working as a team.
 
Half Time : Stirling Albion Junior Academy 0-1 Cowie United 
 
Second Half is where tiredness normally sets in for us and lack of subs versus opposition rolling five we really miss the fresh legs on the pitch.
 
Stirling Albion made quick work of equalizing and the pressure was on. 
 
The boys stayed strong and although the game was now being played mainly in the Cowie United half they battled in the defence and mid field to push up the park. 
 
Going with a slight change from moving Conor from midfield to Centre and Rio out onto the wing gave him his opportunity to cross a ball straight into Albion goal giving us 2-1 lead. 
 
Cowie couldn’t afford to sit back as Stirling Albion were a constant threat which made for an exciting and touch and go game for whole match. 
 
Playing one up front Lewis had to take his chances against a strong and physical Albion defence which he did again with a great ball played through he bet the boys on speed and made another goal for Cowie United.
 
Full Time : Stirling Albion Junior Academy 1-3 Cowie United 
 
A big shout out to all the Cowie team as they all played to their best as individuals and a team.  Much needed boost for Cowie United players confidence and start of winning ways. Get well soon to the boys who were missing from match.
 
Well done to Stirling Albion for a great game, that’s one a piece to each team.
