Weather leaves Methilhill feeling less than rosy

METHILHILL welcomed visitors Rosebank for a league tie which, like many others, was in doubt because of the heavy fog.

The game went ahead but, unfortunately, was cut short on 55 minutes with the fog getting worse with the score standing at 3-1 to the Strollers.

Until that point, Strollers were the better side and had raced into a 3-1 lead, despite Rosebank scoring early on when Methilhill could not clear their lines after just 15 minutes.

Methilhill were struggling at this stage and it took until the 28th minute for them to get going. Lee Duffy crossed from the right for Craig Seath to head home to level the match at 1-1.

Ten minutes later and Methilhill were in the lead, after the first of two penalties were awarded.

Callum Thomson was brought down for the first. He picked himself up and calmly made it 2-1 to Strollers.

Incredibly, barely five minutes later, Brian Skene was pushed for another penalty to Methilhill. Callum Thomson again stepped up and scored to make it 3-1 at half-time.

In the second half, with weather conditions not clearing, the referee decided to abandon the game after 55 minutes played.

Methilhill rightly would have been more annoyed but both teams will have to fight it out again.
