DESPITE a considerably improved second half performance, Dumbarton were comfortably beaten 3-0 by Falkirk at the Rock this afternoon.
The first half was one-way traffic for much of the time. The away side played some good football, though Sons had several chances too.
It was Rory Loy who put the Bairns ahead in front of the BBC Alba cameras on 11 minutes, following a mix-up in the home defence. It could have been several more for the visitors, given their dominance.
After the break Dumbarton stormed back into the game for the first half hour. They were unfortunate not to get a goal back before Blair Alston burst through on 80 minutes to make it 2-0 to Falkirk.
Three minutes later it was game over when Craig Sibbald added a third goal for the Bairns.
The Sonstrust Man of the Match for Dumbarton was ‘keeper Danny Rogers, who in spite of the scoreline pulled off a number of important and impressive saves.
Next up for Sons is a post-Christmas trip to Central Park to take on Cowdenbeath on Saturday 27th December.
