Report

 

Chirnside were back on league duty on Tuesday night after their South Cup Final win at the weekend.

 

It was the away team that kicked off with the wind at their backs and they looked to their pacy Strikers to cause the home Defence problems. Chirnside looked pretty sluggish in the opening exchanges and a few of the players still looked a bit worse for wear following their exploits at the weekend.

 

It wasn't until 20 minutes were on the clock that the home team had their first effort at goal. A Shennan cut back from the right was met by Turner but his shot just sailed wide of the post. Chirnside kept on the attack and Morrison almost scored at the back post but he was pulled up for handball.

 

Coldstream always looked dangerous on the break without troubling Luggett too much in the Chirnside goal. The goal that the home team craved eventually arrived with five minutes of the half to go. Windram's glancing header beat the keeper after Ponder's cross from the left.

 

The second half kicked off and within a minute the away team had equalised. Simpson broke free from Christie and the big Centre Half brought the Striker down. He dusted himself off and sent Luggett the wrong way to level the scores.

 

This was a wake up call to the homesters who knew nothing less than a victory would do. Ex-Coldstream player Stuart thought he had scored from a corner but the Keeper tipped his header onto the bar.

 

On the hour mark though the lead was regained when Shennan stabbed home from close range. Shennan then doubled his tally for the night when his half volley from 60 yards flew over the keepers head and into the net for a memorable goal.

 

Chirnside were now in total control and Turner's head flick from a Hume free-kick hit the net. Morrison completed the scoring with fifteen minutes to go when his directed header beat the keeper and bounced over the line.
