Match report


Rattrays started well with both teams being pretty even.
 
However 10 minutes in we gave away a silly foul and then could not clear our lines, as the ball dropped to Turriff striker who could not miss from inside the box 1-0
 
It could have been 1-1 within minutes as Ross Davids0n ran through one on one, but as he was about to pull the trigger the defnder made a superb last ditch tackle.
 
Turriff should have been 2-0 up but Derek McKenzie made a superb save from inside the 6 yard box to keep the scorline at 1.
With the game flowing end to end Ross was again through on goal but his lob went inches past the post.
Turriff probaly deserved their lead going in at half time.
 
Half Time (0-1)
 
Rattrays came out the second half fighting and was soon level with a well worked goal. Ross with some great skill played the ball to Kyle Jaques who then laid off to Terry Johnston and he fired low to the keepers left 1-1
 
Minutes later Chris Smith had givien Rattrays the lead but this was ruled out for offside.
 
Turrif re-gained the lead totally against the run of play, with what can only be descibed as the flukiest goal ever as a poor cross dipped over dek and hit the underside of the cross bar 1-2.
 
Dek McKenzie kept us in with a chance of finding an equilizer when he saved superbly from a Turriff free kick with 10 minutes to go.
 
Full Time (1-2)
