First League defeat for Johner

Johnshaven suffered their first league defeat against Granite City, an outfit who played to their strengths magnificently.

With the wind against them in first half, Johnshaven struggled to defend against the long ball over the top as Scott Spink in goal made a couple of great saves to keep the away team in with a shout at half time after the home team had scored twice through close range efforts.

Half Time Score 2-0

Nayland Maclaren scored a screamer to lift Johnner’s hopes in the 55th minute, but it was short lived as the home team regained their advantage almost immediately.

Final Score 3-1
