View our match highlights on the below video.

Week 29 of the North Caledonian Season seen us make the trip North to play Thurso FC at Sir George’s Park in our last away trip of the season. 

The game started and we ended up playing into a strong wind in the first half. The pitch surface wasn’t ideal, making it hard to get a hold of the ball. The opening stages of the game it was scrappy from both sides, not managing to get a foot hold in the game. There was chances for both teams to take the lead, but neither could convert.

The second half started and we looked to take control of the game. The first goal of the game came early in the second half through an in swinging corner by Robbie Breen as the ball found it way to the back post. 1-0

The second half continued and it was Bonar who had the best chances to extend their lead. The team battled hard to keep the important lead, but Thurso got their equalizer on the 57th minute through Michael Petrie after poor defending and miscommunication from the away side left an easy finish for Thurso to get back into the game.

Both sides now looking to get the next goal as the game didn’t look to be a high scoring fixture. Bonar came on top again in the last 20 minutes of the game, and were rewarded by regaining the lead through Jack Corbett on the 79th minute. Another corner from Robbie Breen when Jack pounced first in the box to give the away side the edge again in the game. 2-1.

The game finished with Thurso pushing to get something out of the game, but the Bonar defense held strong to see out the win. Similar to last week, a game where we have definately played better this season and been the losing side. Hard work seen us through this one to make it two wins in our last two games. Thanks to Thurso for the game & Hospitality, and we will see you next week in the reverse Fixture at Migdale Park.

Man of the Match for Bonar was split between Aiden Stainke, who played at high intensity throughout & Robbie Breen scoring 1 of and assisting the other of our 2 goals on the day.

Many thanks to Gordon Sparling for the photographs.
