Carnoustie Panmure 0 Penicuik Athletic 3
Super League leaders Penicuik Athletic scored three times in the last fifteen minutes to take all three points from Saturdays clash at Laing Park, however, the Edinburgh side dominated the game for long periods and if it wasn’t for Man Of The Match Jamie Robbie, it could have been a lot worse.
Manager Alan McSkimming had to reshuffle his back line that has looked so solid due to Adam Harwood’s suspension and Steven Cook being on holiday, Luke McGeehan came in at full back with Ewan Buggins moving across to partner Derek Paterson. Marc Walker and Robert Urquhart came in for Jamie McCabe and Cook with Jake Mair dropping back to left back.
As if making changes wasn’t bad enough, McGeehan had to be replaced on 18 minutes after receiving a nasty ankle knock meaning Paddy Conway partnering Paterson, Buggins moved back to left back and Bailey came on to partner John Roberts.
Penicuik had three or four good chances in the first half but found Jamie Robbie up to the challenge as he kept the leaders at bay. Johnny Harvey’s side took the lead on 75 minute when Lumbert Kateleza held off two challenges before firing the ball across for Lewis Barr to score his first goal in over a year. Four minutes later it was 2-0 as both Kateleza and Jack Hamilton raced on to a through and despite Hamilton looking well off side he was allowed to continue and slammed the ball passed Robbie and in to the net. Finally on 87 minutes, the referee adjudged that Derek Paterson had handled the ball and Kateleza converted the penalty.
A disappointing afternoon for The Gowfers but we look forward to next weekends GA Engineering Cup clash with Scone Thistle at Laing Park.
