Heston claim 3 points in horrendous conditions

A double from RUSSELL JARDINE following an opener from SAM HUGHES ensured that the 3 points stayed at Palmerston in a match that was played in driving wind and rain.
Heston were playing into a howling gale towards the Terregles Street end of the ground
Hughes opened the scoring in 8 minutes after a good move down the Heston left before Jardine laid the ball into the path of Hughes 20 yards from goal with the striker firing a fine strike just inside Roddie's right hand post to give the hosts an early lead.
Hughes also saw a looping effort clip the bar on the way over , before Paisley levelled for the visitors on 21 minutes.
Jardine restored Heston's lead 3 minutes from the break in what was a nightmare for Roddie in the Creetown goal. Jardine fire in a weak effort from the edge of the box and Roddie allowed the ball to slip between his legs and trickle over the line to ensure that Heston went in 2-1 up at the interval.
The second half was only 30 seconds old before Creetown restored parity and it was Paisley that again did the damage when his cross from the right deceived Armstrong and crept in at the far post.
Jardine scored what would turn out the decisive goal midway through the 2nd half and what a goal it would turn out to be, the striker received a Parker pass midway inside the Creetown half wide before drifting past a couple of defenders and firing a fine angled strike that nesteled in the far corner of the net.

Credit to both sides for serving up an entertaining match in extremely difficult conditions, conditions that actually saw the abandonment of 2 SoS matches and a Lowland League match in the vicinity of Dumfries.
