This proved to be an awkward game for Kelburne, with Anchor taking an early lead despite having only 8 men. Sam Hunt brought the score level with some nice build up play on the right side but still Kelburne looked unsure about how to deal with the Anchor counter attack. Top goal scorer Don Tervit was brought into the action and it wasn’t long before he had an impact, nudging Kelburne in front with some nice work inside the circle. The lead didn’t last long and again Kelburne seemed unsure about how to defend another counter, allowing Anchor to level 2-2 going into halftime. Conditions were very warm and going into the second half Anchor were expected to tire, especially with only 8 men still, but Kelburne still struggled to find the net. Some desperate defending and scrappy finishing frustrated Kelburne but perseverance paid off and Sam Hunt got himself into a good position in front of goal to give Kelburne a 3-2 lead. This match didn’t reflect recent performances by Kelburne but they managed to hold on and bag another valuable 3 points.
Kelburne 5s next game is against Hillhead 6s on Saturday May 5th at Anniesland with a 2pm pushback
