Bromac Kelburne Mens 1s Beat Hillhead 4-1 on 11.3.17

Today Kelburne continued their quest for a 13th consecutive league title with a home game against local rivals Hillhead. The first half was a case of taken chances with Hillhead creating 3 short corners in the early stages but failed to convert any. Kelburne responded with 2 short corner goals from Josh Cairns to give the home team a bit of breathing space. Other chances were created by Kelburne but a mixture of good goal keeping and a goal line clearance kept Hillhead in the tie at half time. Coach Sheppard wanted Kelburne to up their intensity in the 2nd half and Kelburne responded to this by again scoring from another short corner. This time a well worked routine enabled Ben Peterson to score into the bottom corner. Kelburne continued to dominate possession and create chances but couldn't find the fourth goal. Hillhead finally responded from one of their many short corners to bring the game to 3-1 with a glimmer of hope to getting back into the tie. This glimmer soon disappeared as Josh Cairns once again stepped up to complete his hat trick of short corner flicks.

The final whistle brought Kelburne another 3 points with a decent performance. The team now move on to their next game against Gordonians in two weeks time.
