SAINTS 2 Colony Park 4
After two league defeats, this was a game that saints needed to win to get some points on the board, but a rather inept display particularly in defending corners on the day, gifted the Inverurie outfit the win they deserved.
Colony took the lead with 15 minutes gone, but three minutes later the scores were level. A free kick was floated in and with Mike Bruce flicking the ball on Jack Presly half volleyed the ball into the net, however the referee blew for a penalty adjudging Bruce to have been fouled. Up stepped Craig Simpson who blasted the spot kick into the Colony net.
But parity did not last long as a near post header from a Colony corner found the back of the net. Three minutes later it was 3-1 to Colony when a bad clearance was taken advantage of.
With two minutes of the first half remaining Presly reduced the leeway to make it 3-2 for Colony at half time.
The second half started well for saints but just as we were getting on top, poor defending from a corner once again made it 4-2.
Despite throwing on all three substitutes no headway could be made and Saints suffered their third league defeat on the trot.
