On Saturday 14th April Kelburne mens 1’s faced a tough away fixture against their biggest rivals Western Wildcats. At this stage of the season every game for Kelburne is a must win game if they want to claim their 14th league title in a row. Wildcats, who are currently sitting 4th, were looking to pick up some points to keep the chasing pack at bay from that fourth play off spot. So an exciting game was on the cards. The first half got underway with both teams trying to create chances without much luck. Wildcats then had a purple patch, winning a corner which was dealt with by the Kelburne defence. The pressure continued and it paid off with a nice reverse stick finish to give the Wildcats the lead. This seemed to spur Kelburne into life, with a lot of ball possession and chances created. A few corners were won and some heroic defending by the Wildcats kept the score at 1-0 but Kelburne weren’t to be kept out. Some nice interplay between Neil McIntyre and Jack McKenzie gave the latter a chance on his reverse which he duly dispatched between the keeper’s legs. As the half drew to a close more chance were created by Kelburne but the Wildcats defence held strong. Kelburne started the second half with purpose and put the Wildcats players under pressure every time they had the ball. This paid off with a number of corners being won and chances created. Josh Cairns eventually gave Kelburne the lead with a low drag flick. Craig Morton added another with a good rebound finish from a corner and Michael Christie completed the scoring with a well worked corner routine that set up a simple tap in for the veteran. Goal keeper Rory Kerr also mopped up the odd attack from the Wildcats to give the paisley side a comfortable 4-1 victory. A solid second half performance will give the Paisley outfit confidence going into their next league fixture with Edinburgh Uni knowing that only victories will be good enough if the title is to be retained.
