Fort move off the bot­tom of the ta­ble

The Oban Times - - Sport -

FORT Wil­liam moved off the bot­tom of the league ta­ble last week but couldn’t quite make it three in a row.

The Fort de­feated Strath­spey-This­tle 4-1 last Wed­nes­day even­ing tak­ing them off the foot of the ta­ble.

Iain MacLel­lan opened the scor­ing early on for the hosts, and Michael Cor­bett in­creased the lead for the Fort shortly af­ter mak­ing it 2- 0.

Strath­spey man­aged to claw one back just be­fore half-time, mak­ing it 2-1 at the break.

But the Fort came out fight­ing, and top scorer Scot­tie David­son made it 3-1 with a header, be­fore Cor­bett scored his sec­ond goal, giv­ing the home side a 4-1 win.

And af­ter two home wins in a row, the Fort were feel­ing op­ti­mistic about their week­end match against high-fly­ing Brora Rangers.

But the Fort couldn’t hold on


to make it a tre­ble, los­ing 5-1 to Brora at Clag­gan Park, send­ing the wee Rangers to top of the league.

Brora scored two in the first 15 min­utes, but Scot­tie David­son man­aged to pull one back for the home side just be­fore the break.

It wasn’t enough, how­ever, and Brora went on to score an­other three af­ter half-time.
