Brechin City Youths Under 14’s played hosts to ACSC on Sunday, with Brechin High School the venue.
This was the first home game of the season for the boys and with an unbeaten league record to protect it was going to take a good performance to get a result.
Perfect conditions greeted both teams and it was Brechin who took the game to the opposition from the kick off with an early chance falling to Kerr Stuart from a Crosby pass.
ACSC were also having their moments in the opposition half and began to create a number of chances. Excellent defending by Logan and Keir Milne along with Crosby under the guidance of sweeper Marwood made sure that the scoreline stayed blank.
As half time approached Brechin were hit on the break by a long ball through the middle.
The first shot was brilliantly saved by Clark in the home goal but the forward was first to the loose ball and finished well.
Half-time: Brechin Under-14s 0, ACSC Under-14s 1.
The game was becoming a midfield battle with very little chances being created. Brechin brought on both Grieve and Stewart to freshen things up and it was the intelligent play of Stewart that began to link up the play between midfield and the forwards.
With 10 minutes left Steele was brought down outside the box and from the resultant free kick Renilson found the top corner to level the scores.
Brechin created one more chance with a Sawyer cross falling at the feet of Stewart in the box but the ball went passed the post.
A club spokesperson said: “The game ended in a draw, which on the balance of play was a fair result.”
Team: Clark, L. Milne, K. Milne, Marwood (man of the match), C. Crosby, Renilson, Lamb, Donald, Rogerson, Sawyer and Stuart. Subs: Grieve, Mitchell, Stewart, Steele and S. Crosby.
