MNL Div 1: Bromac Kelburne 1st XI Beat Grove Menzieshill - 5.3.17
Today saw Kelburne's fourth game in two weeks when they faced Menzieshill at home in the league. Menzieshill who are currently sitting 3rd in the league would be a tough test for the boys from Paisley. The game started at a great pace with Kelburne out the blocks quickly creating a number of chances. None of these were taken and the game turned on its head when Nick Finlayston received a 10 minute yellow. This allowed Menzieshill back into the game but Kelburne's defense held out. Nick then turned from sinner to saint by deflecting a high ball into the oppositions goal to give Kelburne the lead. The scoreline quickly moved to 2-0 as Lee Morton intercepted a loose pass, waltzed into the circle and fired in an unstoppable shot past the keeper. Menzieshill then came right back into the game before half time with two goals. The first was from a hit and hope ball into the circle, which was pounced on by the attacker. The second was a rebound from a corner. Some motivational words from coach Sheppard at half time spurred the Kelburne team on to make sure they came away with the 3 points.
The second half was one where Kelburne had to dig deep against a very good Menzieshill side who had chances of there own to take the lead but two quick goals from Lee Morton, who scored a tap in back post and Ben Peterson unleashing a trademark reverse stick shot ensured Kelburne came away from this tricky fixture with the 3 points they required to keep the title charge on track.
