18 June 2019 – Dennistoun Thistle 4 – 5 Rosehill– Glasgow Green – KO 8pm
Last night Dennistoun Thistle was back in action against another established league team. After 2 wins in a row the team were hoping to make it 3 and went into the game full of confidence.
A squad of 18 assembled again ready to show what they had to offer.
Despite hoping to start in the same way they had in the last 2 games Thistle went 0-1 down early on in the game and unfortunately this didn’t show any signs of changing as the scoreline became 0-2.
Thistle however managed to compose themselves and get a goal back making the scoreline 1-2, however not long before half time Rosehill scored again bringing the scoreline at half time to 1-3 and suggesting that Thistle would have a tough second half if they were to get back into the game.
An enthusiastic team talk at half time and 2 key changes proved to be a turning point though and early into the second half the scoreline was back at 2-3 and there was a game on. Another goal from Thistle and the scoreline was back to 3 each.
Both teams were fighting for the win now and with the second half much more evenly matched it was hard to tell which way it was going to go. Rosehill scored first and took the lead again, but not long after Thistle scored making it all even at 4-4 again with around 5 mins to go.
A few last minute chances from both teams, but it was looking like it was going to finish all even. Then in the last minute Rosehill scored taking the score to 4-5 and with that the final whistle went.
A sore one for everyone to take, particularly after the fight and determination shown to get back into the game, however the team spirit and fight shown was absolutely class and a positive attribute to have for the season ahead!
Full time score: Dennistoun Thistle 4– 5 Rosehill.
