It was certainly one of the more memorable matches for the Country Cup Quarter Finals. Despite the tense environment, both teams stayed resilient in their attempt to score a goal, using their team-working skills to be victorious, however after a yellow card for many including Marcus Gillfillan, Craig Fleming and Jack Stirling, it was Lewis Mollen that scored Armadale to victory and a place in the semi-final.
At the very beginning of the match it seemed as though both teams were going to score a goal early on, with Andrew Topping only missing the goal by a number of inches after the ball hit the post, was blocked by Lewis O'Neil and again by the goalie, showing his eagerness to score a goal for Armadale despite numerous setbacks.
Around twenty minutes into the match there was expertly done skill work from David Fagan, who successfully kicked the ball back from James Sharp's grasp into the right-hand corner of the pitch just as he was about to score, with no other defenders by the goalkeeper in sight, which may have changed the entire outcome of the match had he scored.
A few moments later Marcus Gillfillan attempted two times again to score for Armadale, but by standing in the centre of the goal only inches away from him, with no surrounding players to distract him, he quickly defended the ball from going in.
Only a minute before the half time whistle Jack Stirling was given a yellow card for tripping up Marcus Gillfillan, however after apologising to the referee he behaved much better for the remainder of the game. Shortly after this incident the half time whistle was blown.
