Heston produced a wonderful win away to Lochar Thistle in the league to keep their league challenge alive. Lochar is not an easy place to go and Heston went there missing 3 regular starters so to come away with a win is great credit to the boys. Heston flew out the traps and had 3 chances and 3 corners and the first 5 minutes but could not break through. All we could hope for is the pressure would pay off and it did when a hand ball inside the Lochar box gave Heston the chance to take a deserved lead. Danny Ronan who has been in great goal scoring form took the penalty and made no mistake to bury it into the net. Lochar then went on the attack for pretty much the rest of the half and it became a backs to the wall performance for the rest of the half for Heston. Lochar created a few chances and eventually got back on level terms when the hit Heston on the counter attack and scored a good break away goal. Heston certainly had Lewis Barr to thank as he made a number of top saves to kepp it at 1-1.
The second half would be a test of character for Heston but the passed it with flying colour as they came out fighting and got back on top. The second half was a little more open then i would have liked but Heston created chances but again just couldnt find the break through. The winning goal eventually came 15 minute from time when a corner broke to Christopher Newbould who smashed the ball into the net for his 5th goal of the season. Heston could and should have got further in front but they failed to take any of the chances the created and were nearly punished with the last kick off the game but Jamie Marchbank made a brilliantly timed tackle to stop the attack.
Every single player played their part in yesterday win but a mention must go to Lewis Barr who made a number of really top top saves to kepp Lochar out when they broke through the Heston defense. Also Leigh Hyslop who came in for Neil MacDonald in for the first half done really well playing in an unfamiliar position.
Well Done Boys!
