Under 14's WLAYFC "A" League
08 November 2014
Forth Athletic hosted Murieston United Blue in the West Lothian under fourteen's "A" league. It was an excellent game of football, with both sets of players contributing their part to an exciting match.
The first goal of the match came after great play from Forth down the right side saw a great delivery from Ruairidh, which was met by a very struck volley at the near post from Graham, giving the hosts the lead.
Forth will have fealt hard done by as they had two penalty claims waved away by the referee. 
Especially when Murieston were to level the scoring as they won themselves a penalty, which was cooly dispatched, low into the bottom corner.
Half Time : Forth Athletic 1-1 Murieston United Blue
The second half started with both sides wanting to go on and win this tie. Both sets of goalkeepers were forced into making some excellent saves, which kept the scoreline at one a piece.
Both sides were playing some very attractive football, keeping the ball on the deck and were passing the ball around very well.
With only five minutes left on the clock, a great move starting from the Forth defence which was played in to the midfield who picked out Kieran after he made a great run, saw Kieran finish very smartly, restoring Forth's lead once more.
Forth looked to hold on to their lead and had to stay strong at the back to prevent Murieston from getting back into the game.
The referee blew the whistle, signalling the end to this great match with the score finishing 2-1 in favour of Forth Athletic.
Full Time : Forth Athletic 2-1 Murieston United Blue
