Kelburne Men's 4s Beat Irvine Men's 1s 5-2

On 17.11.18 - Kelburne travelled to a cold Saltcoats to take on Irvine and they were looking to keep their undefeated season going. So far, the 4's have won 5 and drawn one but looked to be in danger of recording their first loss as the gents were soon one goal down with Irvine benefitting from some loose passing to capitalise. Kelburne soon found themselves two down with another loose piece of passing resulting with a half the pitch run before a pass across goal was deflected in. Kelburne had had more of the early possession and had missed several short corners before they finally pulled one back just before half time, through a well-worked short corner and Willie Allan being in hand to turn the ball home. 2-1 to Irvine at Half time. This was the fourth time this season (cup game included) that the 4s have been 2-1 down at half time meaning that the game certainly wasn't over. The second half started with Kelburne on top and as pressure started to mount Irvine's play become more and more erratic with chances starting to come for Kelburne. The 4s were soon on level terms and were quickly ahead with goals from Aaron O'Hear, Callum Stewart and Colin Fairbairn from some great open play off the training pitch on a Thursday night. Kelburne goalie, Fionn Wilson, had a quiet second half but made a couple of good saves when called upon before Kelburne sealed the win with another good passing move for Aaron O'Hear to grab his second and to secure 3 more points for the gents. The final score was 5-2 meaning the unbeaten run continues. Next up is first vs second in West 2 with the 4s travelling to Hillhead 4s hoping to take another step closer to promotion.
