Campbeltown Pupils YFC 0
Dumbarton Utd 5
GDYFL Div Two – 2009s
Campbeltown Pupils under-13s played their first home game in almost three months on Sunday, going down 5-0 against second-top-of-the-league Dumbarton United.
Playing into a strong wind, the locals made the worst possible start, conceding after only 20 seconds after a series of mix-ups from their own kick-off.
Dumbarton continued to pile on pressure, and only some good defending and excellent goalkeeping by Alan Myles in the Pupils goal kept the score at 0-1.
The Pupils created a couple of half chances into the wind through Kadyn Prentice and Ryan Johnston, but it was the visitors who doubled their lead shortly before half-time with a tidy finish.
Into the second half, and with the strong wind dying down somewhat, both teams had good spells of possession in a well-fought encounter.
The Pupils’ chances for the main were kept to distance – Liam Judge had an effort go over the bar after good play from Taylor Purser, and Jack Green clipped the outside of the post after a fine strike from well outside the box.
It was Dumbarton, however, that proved more clinical, adding further goals, including two strikes from long range.
The Pupils almost grabbed a consolation late on when Johnston broke through, only for his effort to be well saved by the Dumbarton goalkeeper.
This Sunday, the under-13s are on the road again, this time away to Busby.
