Earlston Rhymers 4-1 Tweedmouth Ams


Tweedmouth contested their penultimate away league match on Saturday, at Earlston, and it was touch and go whether the game would go ahead or not after a heavy downpour prior to kick off.

However, after a pitch inspection by the referee the game went ahead. Conditions were tricky to begin with, and Tweedmouth started the better and had most of the possession, playing some tidy football.

They created a number of good chances and forced the home goalkeeper into some fine saves,

Tweedmouth’s own goalkeeper, Cain, was adjudged to have fouled the home centre forward and a penalty was awarded, but he made amends by making a fine save from the resulting spot kick.

The away side continued to pressure the home team but could not open the scoring. Then, against the run of play, Tweedmouth were caught out with a ball over the top which resulted in the home side taking the lead right on half time.

In the second half the home side came out a different team and caught Tweedmouth flat-footed and they scored two quick goals leaving the away side with a mountain to climb.

The Amateurs never gave up and despite the home side adding a fourth they managed to pull a goal back through forward Mikey Patterson.

This was another good performance from Tweedmouth and they showed great character right until the final whistle, but again missed chances proved costly.

Travelling costs were met by West End Cabs.
