Millburn Academy 2-5 Charleston Academy

Goalscorers: Ross Harrison (2), Robbie MacLennan, Paul MacMillan, Scott McIntosh.
Man of the Match: Ross Harrison

Charleston continued their fine start to the 2014-15 league campaign with an excellent 5-2 victory away to Millburn Academy. Charleston started the game poorly and went a goal down in the first minute. However, a Ross Harrison header was stopped on the line by a Millburn defender’s hand and the Millburn player was subsequently sent off. Harrison made no mistake from the penalty spot to pull Charleston level at 1-1. Paul MacMillan then got on the scoresheet with a composed finish to send Charleston in at half time with a 2-1 lead. Charleston continued to play well in the second half and raced into a 4-1 lead with Robbie MacLennan and Ross Harrison adding two more goals to leave Charleston within touching distance of a superb away victory. A Millburn consolation goal only spurred Charleston on again and Scott McIntosh added a fifth late on from the penalty spot to make it 5-2 when he was brought down in the box. Charleston have now started the season unbeaten through 4 games with two wins and two draws.
