Debutant Fabrizio Sonnemoser makes an outstanding stop to deny the visitors.

Brook Street got back to winning ways this afternoon with a 3-2 home win against Airth Castle Rovers. The visitors had taken the lead just before the half-hour mark, but goals from Nemanja Janković, Germán Olmos Ribas and Leoš Loos all but secured the points.

After Jake MacConnechy fired a penalty past the post, a goal from Rovers’ Belarusian striker Mikalaj Chygrynau with sixteen minutes remaining made for a nervous last quarter of an hour. However the home defence stood firm and the victory was secured.

“The result was a bit closer than we would have preferred, but we took maximum points and that’s all I asked for”, admitted Marcus at full-time.

“We’ve had a couple of bad results so it was important to get back on track, and that’s exactly what we’ve done”, he continued.

The coach was also delighted by teenage keeper Fabrizio Sonnemoser’s debut performance.

“He didn’t stand a chance with the goals, but he made two crucial saves, one of which was simply outstanding. For a debut performance, it was excellent”.

The win sees Brook Street stay in third place, four points behind leaders Blue Order.
