On 30.9.17 Kelburne headed up to Dundee for a late afternoon pushback, knowing that they were in for a tough game. Menzieshill have always been challenging at the top of the table in the last few years and are always tricky opponents. The game started out very scrappy with neither team able to stamp authority on the match. About 20 minutes into the game and Kelburne began to play their normal attacking hockey and this created chances to take the lead. The breakthrough finally came when a great mazy run from Adam Bain, who cut inside from the left beating hill defenders, created space in the D. The ball broke to youngster Finn Halliday who passed the ball across goal for Michael Christie to tap the ball home! 1-0 Kelburne. The half ended with no further chances.
The second half started very much like the first. Both teams struggling to control the game. Menzieshill created some goal scoring chances and won a couple of short corners which Kelburne were able to keep out. Then a nice move down the right hand side led to Chris Nelson firing a pass towards the D and evaded all the hill defenders fell to Johnny Christie who calmly slotted the ball past the keeper to make it 2-0. The game turned shortly after with menzieshill chasing the game Kelburne fell into their shell and lost their attacking play. This resulted in conceding far too much space for menzieshill to attack and led to them winning too many corners. This cost Kelburne with goals coming from short corners with around 15 minutes to go and then with only 3 minutes left. Even in those 3 minutes Kelburne were able to create a couple of short corner opportunities but were unable to convert. Game finished 2-2. A disappointing result for the burne who hope to bounce back against Hillhead on Sunday.
