Frustrating afternoon for Whitehill

Stirling Uni v Whitehill Welfare
Stirling Uni v Whitehill Welfare

Stirling University 1, Whitehill Welfare 0

It was to prove a frustrating afternoon for the Welfare on Saturday, and an unusual one as they failed to score for the first time since August 9.

All afternoon, Whitehill struggled to get past a well-organised and spirited University side who finished second in the EOSPL last season.

To be fair, Uni keeper Walker had very few saves to make, as most of Whitehill’s many efforts on the day were wide of the target.

In the first quarter of the match, Dayne Robertson had drives with each foot going narrowly past, and in between, there was a 25-yard shot by Somerville which was held by Walker.

Wayne McIntosh was causing a lot of problems up front and one flick set up Moffat, whose left foot drive went past the post.
