Last gasp agony for ACSC

ACSC 0, Lochside 1

(After extra-time)

ACSC Under-15s were in the J. Bolton Cup final against Lochside at Dundee North End’s ground, North End Park, on Sunday.

During a close first half D. Fraser was the busier of the two ‘keepers pulling off some good saves in his first game of the season.

Just as the half-time whistle was approaching ACSC created their best chance of the match. Good work down the left by D. Brown resulted in a chance for E. Bell who unfortunately could not make a proper connection after a good move.

The second half kicked off with ACSC playing better than in the first half. Captain J. Malone had to be replaced by J. Davies to receive treatment on a hamstring injury. J. Malone came back on for A. Jarvie, in a straight swap up front, which led to ACSC winning a penalty. S. Thomson stepped up to take the spot kick, but his effort was unfortunately saved by the Lochside ‘keeper.

Into extra-time the game went and just when the encounter appeared destined for penalties the linesman gave the bizarre decision to award Lochside a last minute penalty. The spot kick was dispatched into the bottom corner leaving D. Fraser with no chance.

Although a disappointing end to the season the boys can be proud of what they achieved. The manager extended his thanks all the players and supporters for all their hard work and support this season.
