Inverurie Loco Works managed to hold on to the three points after the team went ‘one up’ after only 90 seconds.
Rothes’ defence let Inverurie’s number 11 Martin Laing get a shot away. Ricky Horne got down well but parried it back into the path of Laing who really couldn’t miss.
Gary Ewen gave away a penalty when he didn’t need to dive in Martin Bavidge sent the keeper the wrong way.
Again early on in the second half Inverurie scored another! Rothes winger Calum Mcintosh again used his pace to run into space with the ball and managed to chip Mathieson and get Rothes a chance back into the game.
With 10 minutes to go the team scored its second. With attack after attack for Rothes, something should have come from the very last touch of the game substitute Paul Winton some how managed to header it over the bar from six yards.
Rothes played the majority of the game well and deserved at least one point. Usually when we go down by two or three goals, heads go down and we lose more but the way we came back was terrific. The players should be proud of the performance, but I’m a little disappointed we didn’t get anything for it. Now, the only way is up.
