The Young Terrors were defeated 3-0 by their Accies counterparts at Station Park tonight.

In a first half of virtually no chances, United competed well enough though keeper Josh Donaldson tipped Ryan Tierney’s close range effort on to the post just before the break.
But seven minutes after the restart, Hamilton did take the lead when a corner from the left was knocked down by Lewis Ferguson, leaving the unmarked Taylor Wilson with a simple tap in.
Just after the hour mark, Accies were gifted a second when Donaldson’s kick-out went straight to Lewis Cunningham who rounded the keeper to slide the ball into the empty net from an acute angle.
Donaldson then made two great saves to prevent further goals, only to be caught out by a Cunningham effort that bounced over him for the third five minutes from time.
Donaldson, Bollan, Hornby, Allardice, Reekie, Thomas (Inglis 46), Smith, Dailly, Appere, Chalmers, Taylor.
