Magnificent 7 by Kelburne Stars in Egypt

A MUCH more clinical performance by Scotland produced a 7-2 victory over the Ukraine in their second game in the four-nations tournament in Cairo yesterday, all seven goals scored by Kelburne players.

Mark Ralph put the Scots ahead in the first half and then executed a penalty-corner drag-flick soon after the restart to initiate a purple patch of four Scottish goals in the space of ten minutes.

Neat skills by Chris Nelson, a tap-in by Jonathan Christie from a pass by Stephen Dick and one by Michael Christie after a good run by Graham Moodie all found the net before the Ukrainians managed their first reply. Further goals came from Willie Marshall and teenager Kenny Bain. On Saturday, the Scots had come from behind to salvage a 2-2 draw against Switzerland. Hosts Egypt defeated Ukraine 5-1.
