Mens 1s Maul Wildcats

Bromac Kelburne finished their build-up for the EuroLeague next weekend with a comfortable 4-0 mauling of Western Wildcats. The scoreline does not really reflect the extent of Kelburne`s dominance of proceedings and the only issue for coach Gordon Shepherd is that his charges failed convert that into more goals. However, a string of saves by Wildcats` goalkeeper Gavin Sommerville contributed to the Scottish champions frustration in front of goal. German Jonas Nommensen and youngster Jack McKenzie created the early chances for the Paisley side. The opener was only delayed a few minutes, Ben Peterson found the net with a low shot at a set piece.

Kelburne did all the running thereafter in the first half and further chances fell to Finn Halliday, Peterson, Lee Morton and finally Nommensen, but still no additions to the tally. The second half was a carbon copy of the first but it took the champions 16 minutes to double their total, Morton waltzed his way past three Wildcats` defenders along the bye-line and his cross was forced home by New Zealander Nick Finlayson. The third came when a Peterson shot was illegally stopped on the line by a Wildcats` defender and the same player sent Sommerville the wrong way from the spot. With only two minutes left a Peterson cross caused chaos in the Wildcats` circle, the ball went into the air and Morton batted it into the net from close range for the fourth.
