De­pleted Tar­bert FC turn in dis­ap­point­ing per­for­mance against Mill­beg

Argyllshire Advertiser - - SPORTS -

Mill­beg 4 - 1 Tar­bert ON SATUR­DAY March 31, Tar­bert FC trav­elled to face Mill­beg with a de­pleted squad.

The home side took the lead af­ter 15 min­utes when their young num­ber 10 evaded three Tar­bert play­ers and slot­ted a de­flected ef­fort in at the near post.

Tar­bert bat­tled well and limited the home side to a few clear cut chances in the first half, the best of which was par­ried for a cor­ner by the Tar­bert keeper. The re­ward for stay­ing com­pact came to­wards the end of the first half as a Tar­bert cor­ner wasn’t cleared and young Finn Scott volleyed in his first se­nior goal for the club, mak­ing it 1-1 at half time.

Mill­beg came back strongly in the sec­ond half and scored a sec­ond goal early on with a fine fin­ish into the top cor­ner af­ter a square ball from their im­pres­sive num­ber 10.

A third goal ar­rived which went into the postage stamp again by Mill­beg’s num­ber 10. He was a con­stant thorn in the side of Tar­bert and won a penalty shortly af­ter as a clumsy tackle from Craig John­stone al­lowed the chance to make it four. The num­ber 10 stepped up only for his spot kick to sail over the cross­bar. He wasn’t to be de­nied a hat-trick though as with 10 min­utes re­main­ing he skipped by a cou­ple of chal­lenges and slot­ted home his third to make the fi­nal score 4-1 for the home side.
