Bromac Kelburne Mens XI vs St Andrews University

Bromac Kelburne Mens XI were playing in Largs this weekend, taking on St Andrews University in the quarter Finals of the Scottish Cup. St Andrews University caused a shock upset the last time the two teams met in the cup, and therefore Kelburne were determined not to let the past repeat itself. Kelburne dominated from the outset, however they found it very difficult to get an opening goal due to the away team defending deep into their own half.

Kelburne were finally rewarded with their efforts with Jack McKenzie opening the scoring board half way through the first half. McKenzie beat two of St Andrews defenders to slot the ball home from a reverse hit. Kelburne continued to apply pressure upon St Andrews defense, gaining a two goal lead with a goal from Lee Morton.

Second half started as the latter finished, with St Andrews attempting long aerial balls to beat the Kelburne defense. However, Kelburnes strength prevailed and Ben Peterson extended their lead to 3-0 with a drag flick from a short corner. Kelburne sealed their victory adding a further two goals from Ross McPherson and Gary Maitles. This win over St Andrews provided Kelburne with vital preparation for their forthcoming match in Dundee the next day.
