Dumbarton Football Club - Sons of the Rock 1872

SONS BEATEN BY STENNY

Saturday 30th March 2019

DUMBARTON slumped to a disappointing 2-1 defeat to Stenhousemuir in a lacklustre game at the C&G Systems Stadium this afternoon.

For much of the first half Stenhousemuir were in control of the game and pressing Sons at the back.

On 27 minutes the visitors got their reward. Greg Hurst headed home from a simple corner to put them 1-0 ahead.

Dumbarton started to gain more possession in the early part of the second half, but could not translate this into chances.

But then 72 minutes in McBrearty won the ball in midfield and drove forward. Moments later his shot bobbled into the corner for 2-0.

Five minutes later Dom Thomas sent Boris Melingui through, but his strike was beaten away by keeper Graeme Smith.

On 85 minutes there was a lifeline for Sons. Craig Barr drive the ball home to pull a goal back for Dumbarton.

But it was not enough, despite Sons coming within inches of equalising in a last minute goalmouth scramble.

Boris Melingui (pictured) was named Sonstrust Msn of the Match for Dumbarton.
