Our Last Outing
The Caledonian Braves go into this game looking to bounce back after a close 2-1
defeat at home against Bo’ness United. The Braves conceded in the 25th minute after
a low shot looked to be cleared off the line, but the referee gave it and Bo’ness took
the lead, The next goal didn’t come until the 78th minute, Kyle Johnson picked up the
ball just outside the box and rifled it into the top left corner. The game looked all but
over after this goal; however Cammy Breadner was able to grab a consolation goal in
the 94th minute with a goal of the season contender, his free kick from 30 yards out
was lofted over the wall and nestled into the top right corner, the Bo’ness keeper had
absolutely no chance.
