Bromac Kelburne Mens 1s 6 v 1 Gordonians
Saturday 5th March
Goals Josh Cairns x 2 Lee Morton x 1 Ross McPherson x 1 Chris Traynor x 1 Chris Nelson x 1 Craig Morton x still 0
The gents 1st team kicked off another double header with a home game to Gordonians. Without player/coach Iain Scholefield and young Neil McIntyre due to injury, solid striker Jack McKenzie away at a wedding the squad was boosted by the returning Chris Traynor.
The team started off well and dominated from the first whistle. The first goals of the game came from a timely interception by Michael Christie who coolly slipped the ball to veteran Ross McPherson who showed his experience to draw the keeper and finish with a cheeky wee lift.
Kelburne continued to push forward and were awarded a short corner after some patience. Up stepped the Ledley King of Kelburne Josh Cairns to score his first goal of the game.
Kelburne got a bit careless and complacent which allowed the travellers to find a gap in the defence which allowed a forward to break away 1v1 with keeper Ben. The Ozzie managed to slow the forward down however a lucky reverse gave the away team some hope.
Kelburne used this wake up call to kick on and up stepped Traynor to score a well worked team goal. Being the tallest man on the pitch he still seemed to go unnoticed and find himself free at the penalty spot to sweep in what was a crucial goal to restore some dominance.
Half time past and Kelburne seemed to totally refocus and the Aberdeen club never trouble the defence. Lee Morton scored the 4th with what has become a regular occurrence of seemingly waltzing past a number of players and finishing with a reverse stick shot that the keeper could have saved had he seen it!
The goal of the game came from assistant player/coach Chris Nelson from a corner routine that he chose. Josh Cairns playing a low drag flick to be finished with a sliding Nelson deflecting the ball under a confused keeper.
The final goal came from expert corner taker Cairns who again finished off by roofing another drag flick. The team now must recover and go again tomorrow against bottom of the league Dundee Wanderers. Always a physical game and the team will need to be physically and mentally strong to ensure that they walk away with all 3 points.
Next Game Sunday 6th 2pm away to Dundee Wanderers
