Institute face Carrick Rangers tonight in the final game of the season, with premier league the prize should they secure the win. Last season’s defeat in the dying seconds of the play offs still haunting the club, now determined to wrong last seasons wrong.
The first half was sensational from ‘Stute who dominated and played fantastic football. They conceded a stunning goal and responded with a quick goal for Sammy Morrow. Carrick responded ten minutes later with a lucky goal from a deflection from a free-kick.
Unfortunately the second half was a poor one for ‘Stute and conceded two more goals, despite our best efforts. Credit must be given to the lads who preserved until the final whistle. Jamie McIntyre was man of the match for ‘Stute in the view of many of the fans as he put on a very skilful display. However, it must be remembered that the team were missing three key players, and despite losing they played the better football.
