Saturday 3rd March 2013 : Report by Eddy
First game of the new season and Newtonmore
started well, pushing forward and putting pressure on the Glen
defence, a few early chances were squandered and once again
Stuart in the Glen goal was in excellent form.
camped around the Glen goal area but just couldn't convert any of
the numerous chances they created, a quick breakaway by
Glenurquhart ended with a good save from Mike Ritchie. This
showed that the game, depite all the Newtonmore pressue, was
still open. In the 31st minute the first goal finally came, a
fast flowing move from the centre saw the ball find its way to
the fast moving Fraser MacKintosh who made no mistake in slamming
the ball past the Glen keeper. Half Time 1 0. Glenurquhart began
the second half well and pushed forward but the 'More defenders
held them at bay and Mike was rarely troubled. 'More again gained
control of the centre and began to push forward in search of more
goals but again many chances were wasted. The second goal in the
79th minute, again from Fraser, should have finished the game,
however a minute later Glen had pulled one back, this didn't
really change the pattern of the game with 'More straight back
onto the attack, substitute John McKenzie scored 'More's 3rd goal
in the 84th minute, game over? should have been but some poor
defending from a free hit allowed Glenurquhart to grab a 2nd and
make the last few minutes a bit tense for the Newtonmore support.
Final score Newtonmore 3 Glenurquhart 2.
A winning start for
the new management team.
