Rossvale FC Under 19s vs Bonnyton Thistle Under 19s
GADYFL Division A - 26/11/2011
In a weather hampered game, Bonnyton created chances straight from the start through Paterson and Watt, with both testing the Rossvale keeper. On the 15 minute mark, Bonnyton eventually found the net as Watt set up McTiernan who smashed the ball home with a right footed shot. The next 25 minutes saw both teams create chances, and with 5 minutes remaining, Rossvale had a corner which Bonnyton keeper, Murchie, punched out to create a break up the park. McKie, wide on the left, passed two Rossvale players and laid the ball off to Paterson, who calmly slotted it home.
Bonnyton's passing game seemed to be wearing Rossvale down. Keeping the ball on the ground was the only way in the wet and windy conditions.
