CARNOUSTIE 3 CAMELON 1
Carnoustie produced a dominant performance to beat Camelon 3-1 at Laing Park, a result that lifts Alan McSkimmings side above local rivals Lochee United and Broughty Athletic and in to the top five.
The Gowfers who were able to have a full substitutes bench after welcoming back Steven Cook and Luke McGeehan took an early lead after just five minutes when Ewan Buggins rose above the Camelon defence to head home a Sam Simpson corner. Carnoustie were well on top and playing some great football, so it was no surprise when the lead was doubled on the half hour, Sam Simpson skipped away from his man, fed Pat Martin and after rounding the keeper he smashed the ball in to the roof of the net.
The second half continued in the same vein and Carnoustie were rewarded with a third goal on 63 minutes from the penalty spot. Simpson who had been a thorn in the side of the visitors all afternoon was tripped in the box and after he had picked himself up, the winger rammed the penalty in to the back of the net to make it 3-0
The visitors pulled a goal back on 83 minutes when Herron was given room to shoot past Jamie Robbie who had enjoyed a quite afternoon. The goal was nothing more than a stark consolation for the visitors whose afternoon was made worse when they were reduced to ten men in the dying minutes.
