SPORT: Annan thump 10-man Dumbarton to all but secure play-off final place

Peter Murphy’s side finished 11 points behind their second-placed opponents in the end-of-season table but thoroughly outclassed them on the night, with striker Tommy Goss paving the way for a thumping success at Galabank.

Goss took his tally to 29 for the campaign as he put his side in control with two goals in the first 24 minutes.

A red card for Kalvin Orsi left Dumbarton with ten men and and they went into freefall, with Tommy Muir making it 3-0 by half-time.

Annan refused to let their momentum fade against opponents who have beaten them three times in 2022-23, putting the tie beyond doubt in the second period as Aidan Smith, Dominic Doherty and substitute Benjamin Luissint all added their names to a crowded score sheet.
