Lyle brace hands Blue Toon win over Broch

Sat 06 Jul 2019

Fraserburgh 1-2 Peterhead

 

Derek Lyle scored in each half as Peterhead came from behind to defeat Fraserburgh in Ryan Christie’s testimonial.

The Blue Toon took the opportunity to freshen up the starting line-up following the midweek match against Aberdeen.

Last season’s League 2 champions did not get off to the best of starts, Scott Barbour slotting home for the Broch in the eighth minute.

But Lyle levelled seven minutes before the interval with a neat finish, which gave Paul Leask no chance.

Aaron Norris laid on the winner with a fine 69th minute cross, which was converted by a delicate Lyle header.
