Rangers lack strike potency
Albany-Bayswater proved too strong for Stirling Rangers in the Albany Junior Soccer Association under-15s competition last Saturday.
Stirling Rangers are possibly the most improved side this season across all age groups and although three goals in each half to AlbanyBayswater gave them a convincing 6-1 victory, Rangers were not without their chances.
The first 10 minutes of the game was goalless and it was Rangers that were playing the more attractive football but they were just lacking a little in front of goal.
Albany-Bayswater were the opposite and their strike force was more potent with some extra speed up front.
The first goal came against the run of play when the Rangers keeper hesitated to come off his line.
It was the window of opportunity Albany-Bayswater needed to open their account.
Rangers did manage to net an equaliser but it was only for a brief moment as Albany-Bayswater banged in two more before the break and three more after half-time.
Port Albany were too strong for John Calvin, who did manage to get on the score sheet.
They scored early and the players celebrated the goal like a victory but conceding a goal woke Port Albany up and they refocused to romp home 9-1.
Polonia dominated their game against Grammar, to record a 10-0 thrashing and seven different goal scorers showed they were passing the ball around nicely. Caledonians beat Denmark 6-0 in the other under-15s match. Royals finished 3-0 winners over Rovers in their round 11 under-16 league fixture.
Both other league games finished in 1-1 draws with Grammar and Denmark sharing the points while John Calvin and Stirling Rangers could not be separated either.
After the two shock defeats in the cup competition in the under-14s, Polonia and Stirling Rangers were back on track in the league.
Polonia had to play their quarterfinal victors John Calvin again and this time Polonia were not going to slip up. John Calvin were still incredibly difficult to break down but they could not hold Polonia out like they did the previous week with Polonia winning 4-0.
Stirling Rangers were even more convincing with an 8-0 win over Denmark and Grammar beat Rovers 4-0.
