North Uist United 1 Iochdar Saints 7
We went into the game missing a few key players but we started reasonably well battling through the first half defending the goal well when required. We were by no means the better team but we did have good moments in the game. We unfortunately conceded a penalty in the first half though which Saints converted to make it 0-1 going into half time.
We started the second half high on confidence after our showing in the first. This was short lived though after we were caught sleeping from kick off and conceded in the first minute of the half. The game continued in this manner with us conceding one after the other until we eventually got one back from an Andrew MacSween penalty in the 75th minute to make it 1-6. We tried to get up the park to make something happen but to no avail and Saints eventually ended the game 1-7 winners. Again the only positives we could take from the game is the few youngsters that got some valuable minutes under their belt.
MOTM: Unfortunately I’m not going to award anyone again for this game. In the first half there were a few candidates but the second half undid all the good work done in the first.
Our next game is away to Ness on Saturday at noon in the Co-op cup.
