Shettleston 1-1 Pollok (Shettleston win bonus point 5-4 on pens)

Shettleston won bonus point 5-4 on pens

Match report by Christopher Dodds

Pollok?s Sectional Cup campaign hit a snag on Monday night, after drawing with Shettleston and missing out on the bonus point in the penalty shootout at Greenfield Park in a stuttering performance. Lok dominated the first half, bossing possession and the tempo of the game and took the lead midway through the half through new signing Danny Boyle. After scoring on Saturday, he again rose highest to a Ewan McNeil free kick from the right hand side of the area to head home into the bottom left corner.

Shettleston equalised midway through the second half through Kevin Corr who capitalised on an error by Mohammed Niang and Ross Brash. Niang misplaced his pass which went straight to the Shettleston midfielder, who passed it out wide to the left, and the winger drove on past McNeil and played it through for Corr, who let it run past him and used young Tony Coutts as a shield to hide his shot into the bottom left corner beyond Longmuir.

Sub David Gormley then had the best chance for the Lok to regain the lead, hitting a fine strike from 30 yards beating the keeper but rattling the crossbar and bouncing back off the line, much to the relief of the Shettleston keeper, and the despair of Gormley.

With the game headed to penalties, Lok missed their second and fifth penalty with Sideserf shooting high and left, with Shettleston goalie Mclean being equal too it and ?Pi?o? Dachnowicz being too complacent and letting the keeper read his body and dive the right way to save his penalty comfortably.

This left it to Taylor King, Shettleston?s youngest ever player, to confidently slot it past Longmuir into the bottom left corner to win his side the bonus point.

After the evening’s results, Pollok?s section saw Rossvale on top, Lok second, Shettleston third and Maryhill fourth meaning the winner of Pollok v Rossvale on Wednesday goes through unless there is a large goal swing in Shettleston’s favour in their game against Maryhill.

Pollok v Maryhill

Match report by Christopher Dodds

Pollok opened their West Of Scotland Sectional Cup campaign with a professional victory over Maryhill on Saturday afternoon after scoring through an Adam Forde double, Danny Boyle and Mohammed Niang in a 4-1 win. After a lacklustre first half, Lok opened the scoring after around an hour, through Adam Forde. Bryan Young?s low corner came in from the left, with Adam Forde waiting at the front post to knock it past ex Lok custodian Andrew Duncan in the Hill net into the bottom left hand corner.

Lok doubled their advantage less than 10 minutes later, scoring from another corner. Adam Forde swung the ball in from the right hand side and new signing Boyle rose highest, to bullet the ball home leaving the keeper with no chance at the back post.

Maryhill pulled one back with 15 minutes left on the clock through Tam McGaughey, who received the ball around 35 yards out, took on his man and shot from around 25 yards, low and hard into the bottom right hand corner, beyond the reach of Jordan Longmuir in the Lok net.

Lok again increased their lead to two goals in the 82nd minute when Adam Forde received the ball at the right hand side of the area, took on his man and hit a reverse shot from the left hand side of the ?D? into the bottom right corner to make it 3-1.

As time ran out for a ‘Hill comeback, Mohamed Niang made it four, meaning he is the first academy graduate to score for the first team, a yearon from making his debut. After a neat one-two with Adam Forde at the edge of the area, ?Sena? was one-on-one with the keeper and calmly slotted it into the bottom right corner, to bring an end to the scoring.

This result meant that Pollok top the group with Rossvale behind them with Shettleston and Maryhill occupying 3rd and 4th spot respectively.
