Albion went a long way in securing their division 2 status with a well earned home 5-3 win over Banteer. Banteer shaded the first half in possession and play though the score at half time proved different. Albion took the lead when Tim won the ball from a throw and turned, he shot near post at a tight angle giving the keeper no hope. Albion went 2-0 up minutes later when James delivered a low corner and Jamie made a perfect run to poke home. An identical goal out Albion 3-0 when Rob punched home from a corner about a minute later. 3-0 half time.
Albion hearts nearly stopped on 47mins as Banteer scored 2 goals in two mins to make it 3-2. Albion moved to 4-5-1 to hold the lead and it worked when Tim Harrington defended from the front, winning the ball from the wing, he then made a burst and finished lovely from the left into the bottom right. Super sub Ronnie made it 5-2 when he made an inside run from the right, latching onto the ball and finishing superbly with the outside of his right. With a few to go Banteer made it 5-3 with a consolation goal. Great win and a vital 3 points.
