Friday 30th November - Bonnyton Thistle v HOB U20s

Friday 30th November
On our travels to Kilmarnock tonight to play Bonnyton Thistle. The game started in horrendous conditions with both teams sizing each other up with little chances being created. After 15 minutes slack defending cost us a goal with Bonnyton going 1-0 up. This sprung us into action and it wasn’t long before Jack had us back on level terms at 1-1. The remainder of the half we pressed for a second and had 4/5 great chances to get a second. Second half started as the first finished with us pressing for a second goal which came from Josh on the hour mark. Again we had great chances to put the game to bed but for some great goalkeeping and poor finishing it wasn’t to be. With the game heading towards the end Bonnyton grew in confidence from our missed chances and recorded two counters to take a 3-2 lead. Try as we could we couldn’t find an equaliser. Happy with the way we competed and performed tonight but a harsh lesson on taking your chances and defending properly at all times. Looking forward to next week already!
