Thistle maintain winning form

The top two in the Under-17 league faced off at the weekend with home side Millennium and visitors Lochar Thistle cancelling each other out for the most part.

In the end they could only be split by a Jamie Campbell strike midway through the second half to maintain Thistle’s 100% start to the season.

Terregles climbed into second spot with a thumping win over Mid Annandale, and Heston Rovers kept their title hopes alive with a win over their Colts side. The final match saw Threave Rovers and Dalbeattie Star share four goals.

With Terregles out of action Annan Athletic went joint top of the Under-15s after a win at Mid Annandale. Galloway Thistle are three points behind thanks to a hard-fought win over St Cuthbert Wanderers, and Lochar Thistle stay joint third after a narrow victory over Greystone Rovers. Ali Tait had Lochar in front at the interval, but Greystone had keeper James Wharton to thank for keeping them in the match. Hayden Edgar doubled the lead before Sam Hughes tucked away a penalty to reduce the arrears. Euan Donowho restored the cushion and Greystone pulled another back at the death.

Threave Rovers picked up their first points of the campaign at the expense or the unfortunate Annan Colts who lost out by the odd goal in nine.

Mid Annandale Under-13s were the weekend’s top scorers as they ran riot at Annan Athletic, though the aggregate score was almost matched by Dalbeattie Star and St Cuthbert Wanderers who both picked up their first point of the season in an enthralling match which saw the sides share 12 goals.
