Saturday 12 October 2019 – Dennistoun Thistle 9 – 3 Chalmers – Whitehill High School Pitch – KO 10am
Today we had another home game in the league. The opposition was Chalmers, another of the teams that we faced in the group stages of the Athol Cup. A strong performance saw us run out comfortable winners against them on that meeting and we were hoping for more of the same today.
In similar fashion to last week we conceded first with Chalmers taking the lead at 14 minutes before we drew level at 20 mins. However the game was scrappy with a lot of back and forth and at 28 mins Chalmers took the lead again and the first half finished 1-2 to Chalmers.
Some half time changes to the shape and personnel and the second half was a totally different game with us dominating possession and banging in the goals. Tidser scoring 3 goals in quick succession to get his hat trick and Boab, Josh and Dec all getting on the scoresheet too. Chalmers did get one more goal in the second half, but it wasn’t enough as we scored 8.
Another strong performance and 3 points on the board. Definitely some things to learn from which we can take back into training and our first away game next week.
Full time score: Dennistoun Thistle 9 – 3 Chalmers
