Langcraigs BC
Stewarton Annick
U19 PJ&DYFL - D2 Divisional Cup
Saturday 6th of April saw Langcraig host Stewarton Annick in a Divisional Cup fixture. Annick were battling for top spot in the group and faced a potential banana skin.

Stewarton came out the blocks very sharply and had five great chances in the first ten minutes. However, Langcraigs first real attack saw them go a goal up after fifteen minutes.

This seem to upset Stewarton who then had a further eight scoring opportunities but could not convert. Langcraigs third shot at goal saw them go two nil up and quickly followed up with a third goal as the Stewarton defence was in disarray.

Worryingly though for Langcraig, Stewarton were still pressing forward and made several more chances to score in the first half as they continued to play their excellent one touch passing game.

Half Time: Langcraigs BC 3-0 Stewarton Annick

Five minutes after the break, Stewarton scored a scrappy goal to get themselves back in the game.
The visiting side made a change in tactics an went with three up front as they pushed to reduce the deficit. Alvarez with his sweet left foot set up firstly Brown and then scored himself direct from the corner to level the match at three all.

With five minutes to go, Stewarton grabbed a winner from Brown's second of the match with a powerful header at the back post. It gave Annick a hard earned victory in which was both a very exciting and entertaining game.

The result leaves Stewarton Annick locked on 12 points at the top of Section B, alongside Erskine YFC.
