    Run comes to end 

    Sunday, February 12, 2012 1:23:55 PM

    The Wasps run of 15 games unbeaten in the league came to a surprising end yesterday against Berwick Rangers, the only team we have failed to beat this season in Division Three, managed by ex Alloa Athletic player Ian Little they came with a game plan which worked a treat and bagged the full three points after being handed a penalty to break the deadlock. Alloa Athletic dominated the play but soon found Berwick Rangers getting everyone behind the ball and working tirelessly to keep the ball from their box. Alloa needed a goal to open up the game but although Cawley, May and McCord all went close, Ryan McCord shot striking the crossbar the visitors stood resolute. The goal came out of the blue in one of the few attacks the visitors had, Damon Gray accepting the penalty to put Ian Little's side in front. The wasps pushed forward with manager Paul Hartley introducing all three subs in an attempt to find a goal - Ross McCord flashed a great dipping volley just wide and in the closing minutes Armand One's header struck the post when on another day it would have found the corner of the net. It was not to be Alloa's day, the game can be cruel at times but it is goals that count and on the day "The Wasps" failed to find the net even altough they had most of the possession and played some great attacking football, Berwick Rangers held on and snatched the points.
