Wed 22nd Oct - Keith 1 Inverurie Locos 3

Inverurie Locos made it two wins on the trot in the space of five days against teams with new managers in charge.

Scott Mathieson was again between the sticks while Gordon Forsyth took the place of unavailable Ryan Broadhurst in central defence.

It was a perfect start in 5 mins as Neil McLean fed the ball to the right for David Ross who raced to the byeline and saw his cut back knocked home from close range by Scott Begg, the midfielder’s first goal of the season.

A well built up move by Jordan Leyden threatened to double the score but despite a good finish by Martin Bavidge, the veteran striker had just gone narrowly offside.

Leyden was again causing concern for the Maroons defence, ex Locos keeper Daniel Bell coming out to block, then skipper McLean poked a shot at Bell which was easily taken.

There was a scare at the other end when the ball broke off Forsyth and Colony product Matthew McDonald into the path of Keith captain Stuart Massie but he shot into the side net.

In 29 minutes and despite fierce protests at the award of a free kick, Locos made it 2-0 in 29 minutes, Ross Anderson headflicking home Leyden’s inswinging free kick from the right.

Six minutes later Keith were back in the game as good line leading by the experiencedMichael Ewen saw him look to heading to the Locos goal himself, only to back track and set the ball on a plate for Massie to strike an 18 yard shot first time through the body of Mathieson.

Locos were still the better team and went close in 40 mins, Bavidge easing away from his marker on the left, crossing into the centre, McLean volleying into the ground and the ball coming flying back from the inside of the post.

It was 3-1 a minute from the break and probably the most bizzare goal Locos will score this season. This time it was roles reversed. McLean on the left pinging a ball in, it hit a Keith defender and went in off the jaw of Martin Bavidge.

The threat of the away side continued into the second half. David Ross saw a shot take a slight flick on its way to coming back from the crossbar.

There was a brief spell of pressure on the away goal emanating from young Craig Cormack, Mathieson then spilling a ball before Michael Ralton volleyed over after a corner on the right. Then young Greg Smith sent a long range effort narrowly wide.

Both keepers were called on to make saves, Bell saving at the feet of Ross when a ball was bobbling, sub Henderson then giving Mathieson something to do, while Bell saved from former Keith hero Dean Donaldson.

Deano was looking the most dangerous forward in the latter stages but despite having a shot cleared off the line and another crafted effort narly leading to an own goal, there was to be no further scoring.
