Colts pull off shock

Last weekend saw Heston Colts produce one of the biggest shocks seen in the league for many a year as they picked up their first points of the campaign by ending Lochar Thistle’s 100% start to the season.

Colts goalkeeper Adam Riley was in inspired first-half form to keep Lochar at bay and, just before the stroke of half-time, Owen Culton-Huxham outpaced the Thistle back line to get on the end of a clearance and stroke home from the edge of the box.

Heston had to endured waves of pressure in the second half as Lochar poured forward but the Colts manfully stood up to the task to earn their one-goal victory.

In the cup, Dalbeattie Star edged out Heston Rovers by the odd goal in five.

Lochar Thistle Under-15s knocked Annan Colts for seven with a Nico Burton hat-trick and counter from Aiden Tait making it four by half-time, with Nico Burton, Steven Kennedy and Dylan Cairnie completing the rout in the second half.

In the Under-13s, Mid Annandale closed the gap at the top of the table as they accounted for Lochar Thistle’s 100% start by coming out on top in a nine-goal thriller, and Annan Athletic also kept up the chase with a big home win over East End.
