Narrow defeat for our first home game of the season; North Uist United 1 Benbecula 2

We had a strong squad going into the game on Friday night and we started the game well. We had the majority of good play however we couldn’t get the final pass or decision correct. Many good attacking opportunities passed us by, with us being consistently wasteful in the final third. Benbecula managed to slot in a really well worked goal close to the end of the half so we went in 1-0 down at the break.

Second half continued in the same way with us playing well in spells but not managing to capitalise, with Benbecula never really putting us under a great deal of pressure. Then with 15 minutes to go Benbecula got another goal from a real mixup at the back from us. This just left us with too much to do to turn the game around and although we got a goal back through Andrew MacSween I feel as though Benbecula deserved the win. We might of had more of the ball in the game but they always had an answer to our attack.

MOTM: There were a couple of standouts. Angie MacDougall in the first half for his biting challenges in the midfield, unfortunately he was forced off early in the second half due to injury. Calum MacDonald had a good game too, especially second half. However Ross Nicolson again gets the award for a fine display at the heart of the defence. He never put a foot wrong in either of our first two games.

Many thanks for your support
