Golden win for the boys at Campsie Black Watch

editorial image

THIS Golden Goal trophy tie was played at Oak Road, Cumbernauld, astro grass - the sixth time this season Blackies have had to play their home game on the road because of the poor state of the Station Road pitch.

Campsie Black Watch............... 1

Baillieston....................... 0

As expected, having played Baillieston twice this season already, it was to turn out a difficult tie.

For some reason Watch players made it harder although having a higher percentage of the game.

Blackies scored the all important goal in the 20th minute.

If there had to be something special in this game it was Nicky Prentice’s goal from a long cross-field pass from McGeough, over the head of full-back Lindsay, the Campsie wing-half controlled the ball, went past Tominey and volleyed the ball from 30 yards over the head of keeper Aitkenhead.

The opening half should have seen Watch running comfortably, but the road to goal became more difficult because of the wrong decisions in the final third.

The second half became more worrying for those on the Blackies touch-line with the failure to get that second goal.

Baillieston players were now more confident in their play and only good defending from the Campsie back four stopped them from threatening Martin Storey’s goal.

Black Watch players worked really hard throughout this tie, but did not produce the quality expected.

Watch: Storey, Punter, Whiteford, Donnelly, WattMcIlroy, McGeough, O’Connor, Cairney, Prentice, Aitken, Al Naeme, Logan, Docherty, Haddow.
