Push back was at 1.30 at Duncanrig High School. It was literally men versus boys with about half of Kelburne?s team not even teenagers yet and most of the EK team drawing their pension. EK started well scoring in the first minute of the game, they went on to have most of the play and score another three goals in the first half. This did not faze the Kelburne youngsters as they dug in and put plenty of effort into the game. In the 35th minute Kelburne received a penalty corner but were unable to convert this.

The Kelburne youngsters managed a few flurries into the EK half taking advantage of their frequent substitutions while EK only had one sub to use. EK scored a further three goals before Alex Bogan managed a shot just inside the dee and it ended up in the net at the near post. EK went on to score one more goal despite the excellent performance of David Ogilvie between the posts pulling off many great saves.

The team came off the pitch disappointed but not despondent as they live to fight another day. The promising thing is that many of this young team will play together for many years to come and will grow in confidence and strength. This bodes well for the future.
