Montrose 3 Stenhousemuir 1

A great way to bring the first half of the season to an end with a confident and solid performance.

Montrose finished the first half of their first season in League One in more than 20 years in fourth place, after a comfortable victory over bottom-placed Stenhousemuir.

After a disappointing performance and result against Forfar the previous week, Montrose responded in perfect fashion on a crisp winter day at Links Park.
The Gable Endies took the lead in the 10th minute when Stenhousemuir’s Conor McBrearty gave the ball away to CHRIS ANTONIAZZI. The midfielder, on loan from Aberdeen, dribbled into the box and dispatched the ball into the bottom corner of visiting goalkeeper Graeme Smith’s net.

Antoniazzi was involved again when Montrose doubled their advantage 18 minutes later. His shot deflected off Mark Ferry and into the path of Paul Watson. The Montrose captain’s shot deflected to the feet of EUAN HENDERSON, who turned the ball into the net from a tight angle.

Montrose’s third goal came in the 67th minute when Craig Johnston’s cross to the penalty spot was headed in by PAUL WATSON.

Stenhousemuir applied some late pressure to the Montrose defence, but their goal in the 82nd minute ultimately proved to be nothing more than a consolation, Mark MCGUIGAN turning a low cross from the left into the net.

Montrose’s victory was well-deserved, the home side having created the bulk of the chances throughout the match. Sean Dillon came close in the first minute, having a header from an Iain Campbell corner saved by Smith. Campbell himself had a 25-yard free kick saved a minute later, and Patrick Cregg had a long-range shot held by Smith.

Stenhousemuir’s first chance fell to Alan Cook, whose stinging half volley from inside the box was tipped to safety by Allan Fleming.

Paul Watson had a number of goalscoring attempts, seeing a shot deflected high and wide in the 15th minute, and a shot with his weaker right foot from the edge of the box held four minutes later.

Terry Masson also came close to scoring, blasting a half volley over the crossbar from the edge of the box.

The second half ended with Stenhousemuir’s McGuigan having a shot palmed away from goal by Fleming.

Stenhousemuir could have taken advantage when Watson failed to connect with a header in his own box in the 57th minute, but Cook volleyed high and wide.
Substitute Graham Webster saved a certain goal in the 70th minute when Harry Paton sent the ball over Fleming. Webster’s desperate lunge hooked the ball off the goal line and away to safety.

Three goals down, Stenhousemuir continued to look for a way back into the match, Ruaridh Donaldson sending a free kick over the crossbar and McGuigan heading over.

The Warriors did have the ball in the net two minutes into added time when substitute Seb Ross headed in from a free kick, but he was ruled offside.
