Camelon 2 - Dundonald 1
This East of Scotland Super league match between Camelon and Dundonald promised to be a cracker as both teams had shown good form in the lead up to this game.
Dundonald got the perfect start to the game when they took the lead in the twelfth minute after Gay picked up the ball and waltzed past a few tackles before slipping the ball into the net. Camelon drew level in the twenty third minute when a mix up between Nimo and his goal keeper Lennox allowed Docherty to score. The heavy pitch was making it difficult for both teams but to their credit they tried to get the ball down and play good football. Dundonald thought they had taken the lead with a Wilson header but the keeper tipped it over the bar. With half time approaching the visitors lost another goal when a corner was not cleared and Deans had time and space to head the ball into the net.
Half Time 2 - 1
Dundonald started the second well and a great ball from Nimo put Cargill through on goal but, with just the keeper to beat, he put his shot wide. The next chance of the match again fell to Cargill this time his striking partner Smith pass found the prolific goal scorer in space but his chip went over. Camelon were struggling to get out their own half at this point but Dundonald could not get the equalizer. The last chance of the game belonged to the visitors a good pass by Gay split the Camelon defence as the ball was going to be collected by the home keeper Wallace slid in and hooked the ball to Cargill but his goal bound shot was cleared off the line.
Dundonald got the perfect start to this match but they allowed Camelon back into the game and gifted them two goals. The visitors created enough chances to draw level but much to the surprize of the travelling support their ever-reliable striker Stuart Cargill missed two chance you would expect him to score.
