Lairds' smash and grab

First published in Sport by

IT was a smash and grab performance from the blues as they dug in at the Harry Williams stadium in front of a crowd of just over 300 to take the points.

On 33 minutes the ball was played into the left side of the penalty area and for some reason sub Toth barged into Cairns and gave away a needless penalty which Henders scored from.

Somewhat against the run of play as Rammy continued to pressurise a defence lead by Dysart and Hollett.

The home team continued to press and on 53 minutes a cross shot was just out of the reach of the home strikers.

Within two minutes though Lairds increased there lead.

Awarded a free kick Evans cross / shot was blocked, from the follow up Cairns had his effort saved by Shenton and it fell to Henders who set up John Couch to fire home from 15 yards.

Rammy kept going and a shot from Dean hit the underside of the bar on 61 minutes and bounced out.

Mooney cleared from Gaskell as he threatened and Langley saved down to his left as Spencer fired in from the left of the penalty area Lairds were a threat on the break and on 70 mins Evans played the ball up the left, to Cairns who crossed to Henders at the far post but he over stretched and the ball went over the bar.
