Late strike downs Lang

Rutherglen Reformer - - Clyde -

Ross­vale ............... 1 Cam­bus­lang R ...... 0 Cam­bus­lang re­lin­quished the lead­er­ship of the di­vi­sion to Ross­vale in a drab en­counter at rain lashed Peter­shill Park.

It was maybe the 3G pitch or just the soggy con­di­tions but the Lang looked out of sorts from the first whis­tle and Ross­vale prob­a­bly de­served the points.

Both sides swamped their mid­field and fought to re­tain pos­ses­sion, a fea­ture through­out the en­tire 90 min­utes, and as a re­sult few chances were cre­ated. That also caused a num­ber of petty fouls with the ref­eree seem­ing to be more ready to pun­ish Cam­bus­lang play­ers.

Vale had the bulk of the ef­forts that did go in on goal and the Lang had keeper Fin­ni­gan to thank for keep­ing them in the game.

Fin­ni­gan had al­ready been in ac­tion but his best was re­served for the 30th minute when the Rangers goalie made a tremen­dous triple save. First he blocked a shot then dived to save the follow up. The ball spun to O’Don­nell who seemed sure to score but Fin­ni­gan twisted his body around to save on the line.

The only worth­while ef­forts Rangers had on goal were drives from Gri­er­son and O’Mal­ley but both sailed over the bar. A free kick by Paul Burns was also too high to trou­ble Baskill in the home goal.
