Red Star 2004s faced another tough game on Sunday February 3 when they travelled to Glasgow to take on league leaders Petershill.

Petershill pressed from kick-off, putting Star under pressure, and took a deserved lead.

The Lochgilphead youngsters tried to exert a bit of influence and equalised with Caskie forcing the ball into the net from a well-worked corner.

This simply encouraged Petershill and as Red Star struggled to cope, Petershill fired in two more goals.

Star dug in and tried to keep in the game and they were rewarded just before half time with a goal from a Caskie penalty, with Petershill reduced to 10.

The second half was more evenly balanced, although Star struggled to create and convert any clear goal scoring opportunities. A breakthrough did come when, with time running out, Paterson fired in a long range effort to secure a draw.

Next up is a home game this Sunday, February 10, against last year’s Glasgow League champions Drumchapel Amateurs.
