Camelon started this match the brighter and created the first chance on four minutes when the ball fell to Kieran Anderson just inside the box but his shot was weak and Connor Wallace saved easily . The visitors should have taken the lead on ten minutes when Michael Linton unusually gave the ball away on the edge of the 18 yard box leaving Ross Cameron one on one with Wallace .Fortunately for Michael Wallace saved well from the striker . Ryan Kane and Andrew Kay created an effort on 18 minutes but again there was no beating Connor Wallace in the hosts goal . A good run down the right by Ross Nimmo on 25 minutes saw his cross into the box met by the head of Nicholas Locke who knocked it down to Scott Richards who’ attempt at an over head kick fell weakly into the keepr’s arms . A minute later Nimmo made another good run down the right but this time his cross was poor . At the other end Kieran Anderson forced a good save from Wallace . With a half hour on the clock a mix up in the home defence saw Ross Cameron presented with a shooting opportunity which Wallace again saved well from . Craig Scott saw a shot tipped round the post with Dean Shaw at full stretch on 32 minutes . Nicholas Locke tried a shot on 36 minutes but from far out he missed the target . Conor McKenzie was allowed to run down the left hand side before cutting inside the box and found Wallace again in no mood to be beaten as he beat his shot away and Gordon Donaldson tidied up by clearing for a corner . With half time approaching a ball into the box found Ross Cameron but his header was tame and easily saved . Keran Anderson’s blushes were spared when a shot from McKenzie was well saved and the ball broke to Anderson six yards out but he blast it over the open goals but was adjudged to have been offside anyway .
It was Anderson who forced yet another good stop from Connor Wallace two minutes into the second half . Cameron Ross made a good run down the left and from just indide the left hand side of the 18 yard box he curled a ball around the keeper but to everyone on the home side were dismayed it hit the right hand post before bouncing straight back into the welcoming arms of Dean Shaw in the visitors goal . .Before the hour mark Scott Richards was through on goal but under pressure from the defender he shot wide .That was his last action in the game as he went down injured and was replaced by Saul Duffy .Ross Nimmo saw a shot from the left go just past the right hand post on 65 minutes . Two minutes later Nicholas Locke turned in the box and shot which forced Shaw to save well . The goal came on 70 Minutes when ROSS NIMMO and Saul Duffy both chased a ball into the box with NIMMO getting the final touch forcing the ball into the back of the net . Time was running out for the visitors with 6 minutes remaining of normal time Ryan Kane saw a shot go just wide left from the right hand side of the box . Deep into the 5 minutes added on a free kick three yards outside the home box was set up for Kieran Anderson but thankfully for the home faithful his trademark free kick deserted him and from the centre of the box just outside he pulled his shot wide left of the target and Camelon’s hope’s of getting anything from the match went past the post with it .
A good win that see’s us go joint top was most satisfactorily achieved and we can look forward to 2019 with optimism .
