MNL Div 1: Bromac Kelburne Mens 1st XI Beat Western - 4.3.17
Today saw Kelburne face a young and enthusiastic Wildcats side in the League at Auchenhowie and it was the Wildcats who looked the brighter team in the opening exchanges. But they could not take the lead and missed a number of chances. Kelburne capitalized on this and against the run of play managed to sneak the first goal as Nick Finlayston got a tap in at the back post. Western were not to be denied for long as they soon leveled up proceedings scoring a scrappy goal before half time.
Some stern words from coach Sheppard at half time kicked the Paisley team into life and they soon took the lead from a trademark corner from Josh Cairns. This seemed to ease the pressure on Kelburne who were then able to dictate play and creating good chances to extend the lead. This eventually happened at another penalty corner as Cairns again produced another fierce shot which left the keeper with no chance. Veteran Johnny Christie then wrapped up proceedings with an easy tap in at the back post after a lovely flowing team move. This wasn't perhaps a vintage performance from the Paisley team but it was three points in the bag against a very energetic Wildcats side.
Final Score: 4-1 to Kelburne
