Grieve Road v Beith Juniors
What a difference a week makes
The sun was shining as the Badgers this week headed to Battery Park in Gourock for their first away game of the season. An outdoor gym at the side of the pitch provided an excellent opportunity for the kids to get warmed up whilst having fun. Coach Craig Walker made sure all the boys got the best out of the equipment.
Beith came out strong and were pushing hard for the opening goal, Taylor got the first shot of the match but the Grieve Road keeper was there to knock it wide. Grieve Road fought back but the defensive three of Beith were there to turn it around, creating an opportunity for Adam to push forward and open the scoring.
Again Grieve Road were pushing forward and again the Beith defensive was too much this time pushing the ball forward and giving Taylor the chance to see the ball home.
Grieve Road kept pushing and managed to pull a goal back before half time was called.
The second half again saw Grieve Road come out strong and managed to equalize not long after the half kicked off, but Beith managed to regroup leading to amazing shots at goal. Dylan hit the crossbar, and the rebound was swept up by Lewis but it was just a touch too wide.
It was Taylor that got the first Beith goal of the 2nd half with a fantastic strike, followed by another goal from Adam. Beith kept the pressure on with some amazing passing play and dribbling, not forgetting Lewis amazing attempt at goal from a header which just went over the bar.
Dylan managed to send the ball past the Grieve Road keeper and it was Todd that got Beith’s final goal of the game, concluding an outstanding performance from all the boys.
No singular man of the match this week as every player give their all during the game, well done to each and every player, you are all men of the match.
Beith: Dylan Jackson, Connor Bates, Taylor Burns, Adam Walker, John Boyd, Calum McDonald, Lewis Christie, Todd Norris, Jake Barrie, Balazs Szommer.
