NRFL - Premier Division Matchday 19v20
Boro got off to a great start when a corner kick was headed home by Phil Horsman in the fourth minute(see pic above) Dubs quickly responded to a missed penalty in the 18th minute when Russell Spence was unmarked at the far post to grab the equaliser.
The hosts dominated the second half with a hat-trick by Stu Rose within a twenty minute spell making it 4-1 with some decisive finishing by the number nine.
With five minutes left Steve Keenan scored the best goal I’ve seen in 2019(so far) finding the back of the net with a shot from just over the halfway line from the right-back position. Clayton McDonald brought up the half dozen with a rasping shot in the dying minutes to wrap up a fine performance from Rangers.
