Missed chances prove costly as Fort Wil­liam lose at home to Fraser­burgh

The Oban Times - - Sport -

Fort Wil­liam 0 Fraser­burgh 3

THERE was an op­ti­mistic feel­ing around Clag­gan Park ahead of the Fort’s first home game of the 2016/17 Scot­tish High­land Foot­ball League Sea­son Sea­son.

The pitch was look­ing im­mac­u­late and the newly re­fur­bished dress­ing rooms were in use for the first time.

Kick- off was de­layed by 15 min­utes due to the ref­eree be­ing caught up in traf­fic.

The home side took the game to Fraser­burgh right from the start, and vis­it­ing keeper Paul Leask had to look sharp to deny Iain MacLel­lan af­ter only 15 sec­onds.

The Fort were the bet­ter side in the first half and had fur­ther chances from Adam Por­ritt, Jack Lin­gard and an­other cou­ple from Maccy.

But as the old say­ing goes, if you don’t take your chances it will come back to bite you, and that was ex­actly what hap­pened in the sec­ond half.

Fraser­burgh num­ber 9, Grant Noble, was clin­i­cal in front of goal and grabbed him­self an ex- cel­lent hat-trick to en­sure that the points left with the visi­tors.

At the death, for the sec­ond suc­ces­sive game, the Fort were de­nied what looked like a stonewall penalty.

Next up for the Lochaber side is a trip to cur­rent league lead­ers Buckie This­tle next Satur­day.

Pho­tos: Alba Pho­tos.
