Under-14s score six of the best

Montrose Youth Under-14s 6, ACSC Under-14s 2

MONTROSE Under-14s continued their excellent league form with a solid display against Arbroath CSC at Broomfield on Sunday.

The home side started brightly and took the lead in five minutes. Gill slid an inch-perfect pass through to FRASER and he slammed the ball into the far corner.

Two minutes later a quick throw-in from Spark found FRASER in the box and he fired high into the net to double his side’s lead.

The home side was totally dominant and Jones had a shot just wide in 23 minutes; but two minutes later Montrose added to their score when Spark played in BAYFIELD who rapped the ball home.

On 30 minutes a slick move on the right, involving Spark and McCombie exchanging a pair of one-twos, created a corner for the home side and from the dead-ball Walker headed over the bar.

Half-time: Montrose 3, ACSC 0.

The second half started with the home side pressing for more goals, and five minutes in FRASER completed his hat-trick with a strike at the back post.

However, moments later a clearance down the middle came right back at Montrose and the ACSC player ran through and slid the ball past McCormack to make it 4-1. Two minutes later it was 4-2 when a short pass-back let in a visiting forward to strike the ball home.

On 55 minutes a Talbot effort at the back post from a corner skidded over the bar, but the goal was only four minutes in coming as GREENWOOD burst through and knocked the ball under the ‘keeper to make it 5-2.

Muir was battling with the Arbroath centre-forward and coming out best as the visitors started to run out of ideas. With four minutes to go, Montrose wrapped the game up when a corner dropped at the back post for BRADBURN who turned inside and curled a shot into the top corner.

Montrose have won all five of their league games so far going into the tattie holidays and can hopefully push on when they return to action in mid-October.

Squad: McCormack, McCombie, Muir, Adam, Gill, Greenwood, Spark, Robertson, Bayfield, Fraser, Jones, Walker, Talbot, Peggie and Bradburn.
