Fort Wil­liam suf­fer heavy de­feat away at Cove Rangers

The Oban Times - - SPORT -

THE FORT re­main firmly rooted to the bot­tom of the South High­land Football League af­ter an­other thump­ing de­feat at the week­end.

This time it was cur­rent cham­pi­ons Cove Rangers who dished out the pun­ish­ment, fir­ing home seven unan­swered goals.

Goal­keep­ing coach Jimmy Pater­son, 51, had to come off the bench, only 25 min­utes in, to re­place the in­jured Dougie MacLen­nan.

Cove did not take the lead un­til the 38th minute when Mitch Meg­gin­son scored.

Daniel Park dou­bled their lead on the stroke of half time.

Meg­gin­son and Park both scored again in the sec­ond half, as did Con­nor Scully, Eric Wat­son and Ryan Stott.

This de­feat now means the Fort have con­ceded an un­en­vi­able 103 goals in 26 games.

Next up is a home game against Rothes, who come to Clag­gan Park this week­end with a 3pm kick- off.
