Stenhousemuir beat Colony Locos by five goals to one in the 3rd round of the Trans World Soccer Scottish Youth FA Cup match at Inverurie’s Garioch Sports Centre. Despite the game being scoreless at half time, the visitors stole the show in the second half to progress into the next round of the competition.
It was Stenhousemuir who had the first effort of the match as Ryan Weir’s low shot from the right of the box hit the post as the visitors looked to open their account early on.
Stenhousemuir continued to press and an effort by Ryan Gillespie was well saved by Colony’s stand-in goalkeeper Matthew Douglas, who is usually scoring the goals as a striker and not saving them. He then made another save five minutes later as Stenhousemuir’s Weir had an effort after being set up by Grant Craig.
Colony had their first chance of the match as a corner swung in from the right was volleyed by Joe Burr, whose effort went into the side netting.
However, it was Stenhousemuir who had two chances before half time. Craig’s run from the right set himself up for a shot which was well saved by the feet of Douglas. Then with moments to go before the whistle Weir hit the post with a low shot after a good run from the right.
