Thomson Cycles Kelburne started the game in a strong fashion keeping the ball from their opponents for the first five minutes. As a result of this possession, Kelburne carved out their first goal after some dribbling by Miles Goldie who then passed the ball the Andrew Bremner to score at the second attempt in the air,after having his first shot blocked. Western were then spurred on by this and won a penalty corner for themselves, however after having had their shot blocked and then JG tackling them on their own 25 this then set up a counter attack which Kelburne profited from.JG then fed Miles who ran with the ball up to the other 25 to then play a hard flat ball to back post where Ross McPherson was waiting to slam the ball home to make in 2-0 after 10 minutes. The rest of the half provided few chances for either team but with Kelburne keeping possession of the ball nicely firing it round the back looking for opportunities.
Kelburne were looking to continue their winning ways and that took another positive step when Bremner got his second of the game after a cute defection from Gordon Menzies free hit outside the 25 to wrong foot the Western keeper. However western would soon hit back with a well executed corner. The ball was slipped left for the western player to drag flick the ball to the keepers high left giving Fergus Barrows no chance. The game however was quickly put past Western once again with 2 quick fire goals.Both of which went to Andrew Duff. The first of which came courtesy again from a Gordon "beast" Menzies hit outside the 25 to find Bremner at penalty spot. He then unselfishly played the ball across to Andrew Duff to pass the ball into the empty goal. Andrew dually obliged again to score into an empty goal after Ross McPherson committed the keeper at baseline.He then passed the ball the a waiting Duff at penalty spot to calmly slot the ball in for a comfortable 5-1 lead with less than 10 minutes to go. There was still time for Western to score another consolation goal. The player firing a reverse shot at goal from top D and it going in via the post giving the keeper no chance.
