Stirling Albion U19 2 Airdrie Utd U19 2
STIRLING Albion U19s stay in third spot in the league after a last-minute equaliser at Airdrie United.
Stirling started brightly and took the lead when Jack Stickler fired the ball home. They lost Steven Forbes with an ankle twist and just before the interval a defensive lapse allowed the home team to bundle the ball over the line for an equaliser.
The team created four great chances in the second half but with 15 minutes left Airdrie broke upfield to score.
Ross McGeachie’s cut-back let substitute Matthew Cooper rifle home the equaliser.
The draw leaves Stirling level on points with Airdrie but the young Binos have a game in hand. On Sunday Forfar are the visitors to the plastic pitch at Forthbank at 2.15pm.
The U13s played a friendly against Dundee United U12s on Sunday. Jack Wardrope scored in the first period, Keiran Murphy added two and a trialist netted as Stirling won 4-1.
