The Reserves fought back from the loss of an early goal to record a 3-2 home win over Alness United yesterday.
The visitors went ahead in the third minute through Alexander Mackay but we levelled it up on 17 minutes.
Tyler Eadie played Kieran Duffty through in goal from the right-hand side and he cut inside before smashing the ball across the goalkeeper and into the far corner having just passed up a inilar chance a few minutes previous.
Seamus McConaghy then had an effort cleared off the goal line as we looked to go in front before the break.
But we completed the turnaround on 61 minutes. Grant Hogg (pictured) did well to nick the ball from an Alness midfielder before driving forward with purpose and drilling the ball into the bottom corner of the net from 18 yards.
Then, just four minutes later, we went further ahead. McConaghy’s free kick from 20 yards struck the ball but broke out to Eadie, who fired it home.
Alness goalkeeper Nathaniel Valante then made a good save from substitute Ryan Moodie before the stopper then kept out Robbie Lean’s effort.
Nathan Grant went through one-on-one with the goalkeeper in injury time but was denied by a save, allowing Alness to break up the park and pull one back through Mackay’s second of the day.
The visitors had one last chance to nick a point with a free kick from deep into the box but Kyle Torrie rose highest to head away and ensure Stuart Finnie’s team took all three points.
