Troon 3 Largs Thistle 1

Largs let this game slip through their fingers after confidently taking the lead in the first half.

After some good wins on the road at Blantyre and Rossvale, Thistle took a grip on proceedings in the first half with Will Sewell's stunning opener separating the sides at the interval.

On 36 minutes, the young hotshot raced on from midfield and directed the ball into the bottom left corner of the goal with an expertly placed shot. See clip below.

Troon came close before the interval as a long range effort thudded off the crossbar with Black flicking home the rebound from an offside position.

Troon dictated the play early in the second half, and keeper Danny Farrell come racing of his area to punch clear during a Troon attack. See clip below.

Farrell escaped with only a yellow while Troon thundered another shot off the woodwork from a free kick.

And on 59 minutes, the equaliser duly arrived as Black's corner on the left was not cut out and Maitland fired home from close range. See clip below.

Troon took the lead through an identical route on 77 minutes as Sam Jamieson stooped low at the left post to power a header into the back of the net. See clip below.

Largs rung the changes following Docherty's surprise second yellow card offence as forward Scott Adam and winger Jack Haggerty came off the bench.

Despite down to ten men Largs looked transformed and it was a cross from skipper Jamie Ballantyne which saw Sewell skilfully launch an acrobatic overhead kick which was unfortunately straight at Fisher. See clip below.

Troon hit Largs on the counter as a high ball over the top caught out Farrell as he came racing off his line as Joirdan Vernon raced on to blast home from the edge of the box on 88 minutes - and it was over and out for Thistle. See clip below.
