Scottish District Cup Quarter Final
Hillhead 2s V Kelburne Q Bikes Mens 2nd XI
Saturday 14th November
The game was played away at Balgray against Hillhead 2s. The pitch has never been great but the rain made it even more of a challenge. We started well having a majority of the possession and a few narrow chances on goal, though Hillhead were very eager to make it through and pressed high and tried to put us under pressure. Luckily it didn't take long till John-Gerard Shepard collected the ball at the right of the D and drove the ball into the left side netting. This gave us the confidence to keep creating chances. To keep us in front Fraser Scott saved us from going level after we conceded a short corner and it was drilled towards the net and he stopped it by throwing his stick in front of it and pushing away for a long corner.
Half time. Hillhead 2s 0-1 Kelburne Q Bikes Mens 2nd XI
Kelburne started the second half similarly to the first with a high intensity. It took us a while to get our second goal but Don Tervit gathered a loose ball laying it off to Matt McGinley and he pushed it into the goal extending our lead to two. Not long after Andrew Duff collected a deflection from the keeper and hit it into the corner of the goal to make it 3. Hillhead, though, managed to squeeze in 2 goals late in to the game.
