Tayport posted their first win of the 2015/16 Super League campaign when they beat visiting Camelon on the Canniepairt.

The win came thanks to second half goals from Jonny McRae and Alan Tulleth.

‘Port were to the fore early on.

Tulleth went close with a wide free kick, while debutant Connor Macleod was just off-target.

Sutherland had a golden opportunity to open the scoring in the 33rd minute.

Ryan Suttie fired in a fierce strike which was blocked by a visiting defender.

The ball then broke for Gary Sutherland but ’keeper Ian Ure made the save.

Towards half-time Elvin held the ball up for Tulleth who shot over.

Camelon made the better start to the second half.

Forward Jamie Glasgow emerged as a threat, having three chances within a short space of time.

He pulled one shot wide, hit the top of the bar from fifteen yards out and also saw a close-range shot saved by Gavin Wilson.

The deadlock was broken on 53 minutes with a goal out of the blue.

Left-back Jonny McRae hit a hopeful shot from out wide and Ian Ure totally misjudged the path of the ball and it bounced low into the corner of the net.

Two minutes later, Tayport doubled their advantage.

Sutherland won an aerial challenge and knocked the ball into the path of Tulleth.

With the Camelon back four claiming for offside, Tulleth simply strode forward and clinically planted his shot beyond Ure.

Macleod shot narrowly over as the hosts pressed to put the result beyond doubt.

But the Mariners were given a lifeline when Gavin Wilson was penalised for holding onto the ball for longer than six seconds and, from the free kick Glasgow was teed up to thumped the ball into the net.
