Cards Keep Momentum


Match Report

After a few very snowy weeks in Glasgow the conditions on the pitch had cleared – weren’t the best but was playable – with the persistent rainfall and soft under foot conditions the game was shortened to two halves.

The first half saw a close battle with surprisingly open passages of play given the conditions both midfields up and about early, the cards dominated the clearances with John McIntyre giving Bruce McLintock and Danny Kay first use of the ball and the Tigers working hard to wrestle back possession with Adam Jack, James Hancock and Joe Perry working well together. The two teams traded goal for goal and going into the break the Cards led by one goal.

The second half saw another tight contest and some impressive work from both defenses Derek Smith of the cards keeping the momentum going and his team on their feet switching into the midfield giving some of the cards a needed rest. Duncan Bertram of the tigers taking some great grabs and working well below his knees to clear the danger in the Tigers back half. The ever dangerous Caroline Sellar keeping the cards defence honest was working hard to move , create space and get to as many contests as possible. The cards forward option Andrew McManus always knew where the goals were and had the confidence to take his shots.

The Cards ran the game out winners and Bruce McLintock gained the player of the day award.
