Oban Saints 5 Camp­bel­town Pupils 3

CAMP­BEL­TOWN Pupils Youth 2005s lost their first league game of the sea­son to an im­pres­sive Saints side in a close-fought af­fair in Oban.

The tie proved to be a thrilling game and an ex­cel­lent ad­vert for Ar­gyll youth foot­ball.

The young­sters from Kin­tyre started the game stronger and took the lead through Calum McAl­lis­ter. The youngest player on the pitch, who is still to turn 11, thun­dered a great right-footed shot high into the Oban net after 10 min­utes.

The Pupils made it 2-0 five min­utes later when Lorne Pater­son pounced on a corner from Scott Gra­ham to score his 10th goal of the sea­son.

With the Pupils push­ing for their third they were caught by a counter at­tack when Kyle Cooper out­pac­ing the de­fence to make it 2-1.

Cooper was to con­tinue to prove to be a thorn in the side of the Pupils all af­ter­noon.

The big strong cen­tre for­ward scored his sec­ond and third to make it 3-2 to Oban.

In be­tween, the Pupils cre­ated their own chances and were un­lucky to go in at half time 3-2 down.

Oban made it 4-2 with 16 min­utes to go, be­fore the Pupils made it 4-3 with the goal of the game - an­other corner from Gra­ham was met by Kyle Pater­son who bul­leted home a crack­ing header.

With the Pupils chas­ing the equaliser, and nearly get­ting it from chances from Shields, El­lis and Phillips, Oban made it 5-3 to take all three points.

This Sun­day the 2005s are on their trav­els again as they play away to Sum­mer­ston.

Kick off is 12.30pm at John Paul Academy, Sum­mer­ston, Glas­gow.
