Dumbarton Football Club - Sons of the Rock 1872

DISAPPOINTMENT FOR SONS AT BALMOOR

Saturday 25th January 2020

DUMBARTON survived a penalty and a second-half onslaught from Peterhead at Balmoor this afternoon, but eventually went down 1-0 to an 82nd minute goal from the hosts.

In the first half Sons came slightly closer to scoring, especially through Joe McKee (pictured) but neither side was able to break the deadlock.

After the break the visitors struggled to get a look in. Peterhead had a host of chances to go ahead, but could not take any of them.

Just before the hour the Blue Toon had a penalty, but Lyle blasted the ball over from the spot.

It looked as if Dumbarton might scramble to a point from a difficult away match.

Then with eight minutes to go Sons 'keeper Conor Brennan — who had a busy afternoon again - kept out another effort from Peterhead.

But Armour was on hand to sweep the ball into the net and give the home team victory.
