On 29.9.18 - Kelburne 5s verses Hillhead 4s was an exciting match from start to finish. From the start Kelburne worked extremely hard, keeping possession of the ball and frustrating Hillhead. The more experienced players in Kelburne’s defence and midfield led by example, limiting shots on goal for Hillhead but when called upon, goalkeeper Fionn Wilson made some great clearances. Kelburne were taking the game to Hillhead and Hamish Walker was a great example of that positive attitude, his driving run into the Hillhead circle and them being fouled earned Kelburne another short corner. Kelburne were then rewarded for their efforts when Dick Donaldson pulled the strings, combining well with the menacing Don Tervit to expose the Hillhead defence. With 10 minutes of the match remaining Sam Hunt displayed some nice skills in the Hillhead circle to force a foul and win another short corner. This time Don Tervit made no mistake, placing his shot perfectly to give Kelburne the lead. It was a tense end to the match and young goalkeeper Rowan McClure made a stunning save to turn the ball around the post. Hillhead then won a series of short corners but the shear determination of the Kelburne rear guard blocked everything thrown at them to ensure a very fine victory for Kelburne. All the youngsters played an integral part in this excellent Kelburne victory.
