Postal welcomed Auchnagatt Barons to Webster Park in this Div2 North League game on a warm Wednesday evening.
Postal went on the attach from the start of the match with Insch having a half chance on 4 minutes when he shot from distance over the bar.
It was Insch who opened the scoring on 11 minutes when a long throw-in from the Postal left wasn't cleared properly and when it fell to Insch' feet he banged it home. 1-0.
After this point though it was all Auchnagatt as Postal took their foot off the gas. Luckily against the run of play, Postal doubled their lead when Insch picked up the ball on the left, strode inside and hit a sublime curling shot into the postage stamp. Great goal. 2-0.
On 32 minutes Postal had a great chance to make it 3. When Malseed was tripped in the box, he stood up to take the pen himself but unfortunately hit the bar.
On 37 minutes, Auchnagatt pulled themselves back into the game when a long range shot snuck in at the keepers left post. 2-1.
It was only a minute later though when Malsee redeemed himself for the pen miss when he hit a low shot past the despairing keeper from just inside the box to make it 3-1.
HALF TIME - Postal ALC 3 - Auchnagatt Barons 1
The second half was much more controlled by Postal.
The Barons keeper made a decent save from a Patterson free kick on 4 minutes but from the resulting corner, the keeper dropped the ball at Ure's feet who made no mistake to fire into the net. 4-1.
On 12 minutes Beattie made it five when he shot from distance. It took a slight deflection but dont think there would be many complaints if the midfielder claimed it as his own. 5-1.
Law made it 6-1 on 26 minutes when he fired in a long distance shot for his 4th goal in 2 games. Another good goal.
On 32 minutes a clumsy challenge from sub Clark gave the visitors a consolation goal from thh pen spot. Correct decision on this occassion. 6-2.
