Bromac Kelburne Mens 1s Beat Edinburgh Uni 1s

On 4.11.17 - Bromac Kelburne 1st XI were on home soil as they took on visitors Edinburgh University. The Edinburgh side have started their campaign with a number high scoring games, however the Paisley side were determined to command the game. Kelburne settled into the game early on and stroked the ball well, constantly probing the Edinburgh defence but failed to convert on a few chances. However Edinburghs forward line carved a couple of corner chances, the first was a deflected corner which was met by a strong leg save from young McClure in goals. Edinburgh University then dispatched the latter corner with a drag flick into the top left, in what was their only real circle penetration in the first half. Kelburne stepped up their tempo straight away and came close with a number of efforts from Johnny Christie, Josh Cairns and Jack Mckenzie. The breakthrough came after a nicely worked counter play between Michael Christie and Iain Scholefield played Johnny Christie into work the goalkeeper only to make a top save, spilling out to Michael Christie who smashed home a smart reverse stick finish from a tight angle. HT 1-1 An encouraging half-time team talk from Gordon Shepherd sent the Paisley side out boyantly which lead Kelburne going 2-1 up within 10 minutes. This time through patient build up play on the left side leaving Chris Nelson with a composed finished, setting the tone for the remainder of the game. Kelburne continued to spray the ball about through long spells, distrobuted out from Cairns, Bain, Maitles and Morton that allowed the midfield to carve more chances. Kelburne wrapped up the game with a strong run from Jack Mckenzie who struck a reverse stick pass to Chris Caldwell, who redirected the ball into the goal to make it 3-1. Overall a very controlled and focused performance at home as Kelburne take 3 points.  MOTM Michael Christie.
