Frat Cup Round 2
Balgownie Rangers vs Oak flat Falcons
Crehan Park
Balgownie Rangers had a tough matchup in their second match of the year against the Oak Flat Falcons.
With the wind in their sails after their first win, Balgownie dominated the opening exchanges with early chances to Jim Youssef and Chris Hollingshead. Oak flats then returned fire, forcing several saves from James McClelland. This left both teams scoreless at half time.
The second half was eagerly anticipated, but unfortunately the Falcons ran away quickly, showing superior fitness. Penetrating runs and dominance in possession gave them a well deserved 3-0 victory.
On the upside, congratulations to all the youth graders who have made their first grade debut in the Cup (4 at this moment), and the return of Alex Morlando from surgery.
Stay tuned for the report on tonights match, where the Rangers take on Shell Cove, with all spots in the group still up for grabs!
Up the Rangers!
