Match Report
Banchory travelled to Elgin for this PMAC Superleague match looking to avenge a 6-1 Cup defeat earlier in the season at Nicol-Togneri Park. Manager sandy Carrol made only one change from the previous week, with Ryan Whelan coming in at the heart of the defence.
Saints run of luck with dubious penalties against them continued in this game after only 5 minutes, when the referee adjudged Darren Pyper to have handled deliberately when it was clearly a ball to hand from close range. New Elgin’s McKenzie scored from the spot.
Elgin continued to push forward and a well driven corner flashed across the 6 yard box. A Whelan free kick at the other end was deflected and Jack Henderson attempted an overhead kick which the home keeper saved easily and then Henderson attempted to head over the advancing keeper but just failed.
Elgin were having the better possession but were not really posing any threat to Blair McIntosh in Saints goal. Saints forced two corners with the second being kneed off the Elgin goal line. Elgin looked dangerous down their left and from one such move Forde fired in a low shot that Blair held comfortably.
Henderson was once again in the thick of the action and fired over the bar from 15 yards on 25 minutes. Four minutes later a break down the Elgin right produced the second goal. From the cut back a low shot was fired against Neal Oort who threw himself in front of the ball and once again the referee adjudged a deliberate hand ball, booking Oort and awarding a penalty that McKenzie once again slotted home.
On 33 minutes a flashing Elgin header went just past Saints post and then a cross from the left was missed by everyone. But it was Saints who had the final chances of the first half when a Henderson shot was easily saved and then his header went past the post.
The second half started with the Banchory youngsters piling forward looking to get themselves back in the game. Henderson teamed up with Pyper who shot past. But the 2-0 deficit was reduced on 50 minutes Andrew Close cut in from the right unleashing a fierce shot that hit the underside of the bar and bounced out, but the linesman was on hand to help the referee and award a goal.
This was the early boost Banchory needed and they continued to take the initiative. Stuart Rogie picked out Pyper with a well measured pass but Pyper was denied by a last minute challenge. On 60 minutes Ben McGregor replaced John Smith. Rogie again slipped a perfect pass to Darren Reid but a last minute interception gave away a corner and from the flag kick Pyper’s header was headed off the line.
Elgin could do nothing to prevent the Banchory domination and substitute McGregor should have scored the equaliser on 65 minutes when he only had the keeper to beat from 6 yards out but shot straight at the custodian. Henderson was in on the act again when his turn and shot went just past. With 15 minutes remaining it seemed certain that an equaliser would come, but five minutes later the home side brook through the middle evaded Kyle Brunsmann’s tackle but was brought down by keeper McIntosh who was sent off. Rhys Bain replaced McIntosh but could not prevent McKenzie scoring his hat trick from the penalty spot.
With time running out the task looked impossible for Banchory, but the spirit of this team is excellent and despite having the numerical advantage, Elgin still found themselves on the back foot. On 41 minutes Close broke down the right cut inside driving in an angled shot that deflected off a defender to loop over the keeper’s head into the net to make it 3-2.
Then right on the 45 minutes Close switched wings and drove into the box only to be upturned a yard inside the box, and stepped up to fire low into the corner for the equaliser. Two minutes into injury time Henderson was clear but was barged off the ball at the expense of a free kick. Whelan slid the free kick to Close who took a second touch with his square ball being blocked when a winning goal was on the cards.
A great second half performance by the young squad who could easily have capitulated after the two first half penalty incidents, and Elgin were relieved at the end that they scraped a draw.
Team: Blair McIntosh (Rhys Bain), Kyle Brunsmann, Josh Robertson, Neal Oort, Ryan Whelan, Darren Pyper, Darren Reid, Stuart Rogie (Murray Adam), Andy Close, Jack Henderson, John Smith (Ben McGregor). Subs: Scott Davie, Ross Cochrane.
