Match Report by Ellidh Aitken and Photos by Ryan Masheder.

Tayport faced Blairgowrie on Saturday at home. Once again, the team were up against miserable weather conditions, but managed to put on a good performance despite the muddy pitch. Tayport immediately took control of the game with Dayle Robertson taking an early shot at a goal after being played the ball by Lyall Shaw. The shot was saved by Blairgowrie keeper, Cameron Johnstone. Tayport didn’t take long in securing a lead, with Kieran Sturrock scoring on the 10-minute mark. Sturrock played a nice one-two with Robertson and then smashed the ball past Johnstone. Blairgowrie came back fighting and Cameron McManus came close to a goal before being blocked by Louis Joyce. Similarly, Blairgowrie’s Gary Axworthy looked to score but was thwarted by Jamie Hume before the ball was caught by Tayport’s keeper, Gary Thain. In the 26th minute Dayle Robertson made it two for the Port after slipping the ball past Johnstone. Blairgowrie saw multiple yellow cards from the referee, one to Ryan Beedie for taking Lyall Shaw down in the box which resulted in a penalty to the home side. The spot kick was taken by Dayle Robertson who’s shot was initially saved by Johnstone, despite this he looked in with a chance of scoring after just catching the rebound but was blocked on the line. Both teams fought on for the remaining minutes of the match, but the score remained 2-0 going into half time.

The second half started well for Tayport with Dayle Robertson and Ewan White creating plenty of chances. Kieran Sturrock again looked to score but his shot was caught by Johnstone. In the 73rd minute Ewan White made it 3 for Tayport after a good period of possession, White took on the shot which found the bottom corner of the net. Chances continued to appear for both sides with both Johnstone and Thain working hard to keep the ball out of the net. Kris Rollo was replaced by Sam Sanchez who made an instant impact, almost immediately assisting Daniel Dorovic in Tayport’s fourth and final goal in the 87th minute. Sanchez received and quickly passed the ball on to Dorovic who made a good run and confidently put the pall past Johnstone. Blairgowrie made one last ditch effort to get on the score sheet with Ryan Beedie taking a shot which flew into the hedge. The match ended Tayport 4-0 Blairgowrie. After the match, Kieran Sturrock was named the Tayport Distillery man of the match.
