Institute 3-2 Tobermore

Stute won their penultimate home game 3-2 in a very end of season affair with a few changes to the Stute playing personel. The Stute started brightly with the busy Sean McCarron looking lively. Tobermore themselves could have taken an early lead when a through ball over the top caught out Stute’s new defensive pairing for the day namely John Curran and Graeme Taylor but the recalled Corey Wilson did well to keep out Lamont’s drive from 14 yards. It was a corner from the left that gave Stute the lead when John Curran rose along with the Tobermore keeper and nodded in from barely 3 yards. Tobermore to their credit came back straight away at Stute and were awarded a penalty when trying to play offside the ball was played through in to the penalty box and Taylor upended the forward and Lamont made no mistake past Wilson with a low hard dive to his left. Stute upped the tempo and two quick fire goals just before half time seemed to put the game to bed. A low left foot drive from McCarron which hit the inside of the post and in to the net, the third good work from Joe McCready down the left pulled the ball back to McCarron who made no mistake. 3-1 half time. The second half was a pretty poor affair with Stute thinking the game was already over. Tobermore kept plugging away and were awarded their second penalty when John Curran was adjudged to be climbing over the Tobermore player. This time a low drive to the right of Wilson although going the correct way couldn’t keep it out. Wilson in the Stute goal made a few smart saves to keep Tobermore at bay and whilst not a vintage perfomance Stute won the game 3-2.

The victory now leaves Stute in a 3 way tie for 3rd place, joint with Bangor and Ards on 39 points.
