BSC See Out Season With Draw
BSC Glasgow 3-3 Stirling University :: Ferrari Packaging Lowland League :: Ainslie Park :: 3rd May 2016
Written by Sam Jenkinson
BSC Glasgow finished off another Lowland League campaign with a dramatic tie against Stirling University.
First half goals from Stephen Bronsky, Robert Jones and Tom Woods left Broomhill 3-1 up at the break, but a late penalty from Chris Geddes completed the student’s comeback and the striker’s hat-trick.
Electrical issues at Ainslie Park meant kick off was pushed forward with a shortened BSC warm up, but goalkeeper Derick Moore didn’t look rusty in the early stages.
The keeper first made an outstanding save from Geddes, after a flick on left the striker through only to be denied.
And an incredible double save to stop Andrew Gilles and Geddes minutes later proved to be vital as BSC took the lead.
Woods’ perseverance down the right hand side won BSC a corner, which Mark Dryden swung in. The captain was unmarked and powered a header home.
It was level minutes later, with Geddes on the end of a Tomos Jones deflected shot to just about get it past Moore and in.
But BSC struck again before half time, another corner from Dryden this time finding Jones at the near post with an excellent glancing header across goalkeeper Timothy Hughes.
And a minute later it was three. Woods got free from Matt Sheridan down the right and struck ambitiously from the right, only to see it fly over Hughes and into the left side of the net.
Bronsky came close from another corner on the hour mark, but his header went wide as BSC threatened from set pieces.
Geddes, however, cut the deficit to one after 63 minutes. A clever run across the BSC back four left him through after a neat flick from Paul McCafferty and he fired into the bottom right.
Jones fired over from the edge of the area after a good challenge on Ferris, before the big striker came inches away from getting on the end of a spilled Gerard Traynor effort.
But it was the students who would score the all important next goal, with Rory McEwan winning a penalty just after coming on as a substitute and Geddes sending Moore the wrong way to equalise.
And neither side could find a winner in the remaining minutes, as BSC finish out their second Lowland League season on 41 points. Mark Adams’ and his coaching staff will now start preparing for Season 16/17, which kicks off competitively on the 31st of July.
