Spartans achieved what looked like a comfortable win over Currie FC in the bottom places of the division 3, but with just three points separating them before the game and both good footballing teams there was a lot to play for towards the end of the season.
The first chance of the game took place for Spartans as Joe McGowan stole the ball from the Currie defence and had a shot on goal that was directed straight into Currie goalkeepr Alexander Stobie.
The next chance came for the away team once again as a goal kick from Jack Miller went to the halfway line at Harris Deas who controlled the ball well before volleying it over to McGowan whose shot went wide.
Currie, after playing good football in the centre of the park, finally had a chance in the Spartans area as Innes Skinner had a good run from the halfway line into the box where he tried a near-post shot but was blocked for a corner.
Spartans were straight back at them as Tyler Munro had a shot from the right side of the pitch which was saved well by Stobie.
Spartans were pouncing on another Currie mistake as the defence was unorganised which Christopher Gordon had a shot that was blocked by Jack Weir and cleared back to Gordon who had another go at goal but the keeper came out on top.
Soon after, Kacper Michalak had a crack at goal but Stobie put it behind for Spartans to get a corner. The ball was played into the box well but after a couple headers in the box it fell to Lewis Parker who toe-punted the ball into the bottom corner making the score 1-0 after 19 minutes.
Just a few minutes later the home team looked to score with great football in the midfield as Skinner passed it to Liam Brown. He played it wide to Weir who moved the ball onto Bryan Blackburn. He played the ball low into the box where the ball bounced of a helpless Spartans player into the net drawing the score to 1-1.
Currie were not done after their goal as Liam Brown played the ball to Emilio Mertone who had a good firm shot that Millar managed to save onto his right post before the ball was cleared.
A very surprising goal came next as Deas took a corner for Spartans that went over everyone’s head before managing to find its way into the back of the net on the stroke of half time, advancing the score to 2-1.
