4ths Win In Style

Glasgow Accies (0) V Kelburne 4XI (4)

The 4XI continued their winning ways on Saturday with a 4-0 victory over Glasgow Accies at Windyedge.
This was a match that on paper the 4?s should have strolled through, and true to form, they started by far the stronger team.
With David Wrightson burning up the right wing, tearing the defence apart, and creating numerous chances for the Kelburne attack, it was surely only a matter of time before they opened their account.
The breakthrough eventually came on the 20 minute mark. Veteren Steve Bain made some space for himself in the Accies ?D? and when his pass fell to Alan Gillies, he calmly knocked past the keeper for his 36th goal of the season.
This only seemed to spur on the home side, who were now coming into the game more and more as the first half wore on, but with the dependable Kelburne defence, marshalled by the impressive Greg van Homberg, on form as usual, there was no chance of them pulling a goal back.
The second half started with ?burne taking control, with Paul Maguire taking the game by the scruff of the neck and controlling the midfield, they didn?t have to wait long for goal number two.
Alan Gillies came along the by-line and cut the ball back into the path of Captain Alyn James, who made no mistake crashing his shot high into the roof of the net with the keeper rooted to the spot.
By now the points were safe, and it was now a matter of how many Kelburne would score.

Then came goal number three.
From yet another penalty corner, Alan Gillies powerfully slamed home another one of his trademark goals that have served the 4?s so well this season.
3-0 and the 4?s were flying.
The match was rounded of in some style with youngster Kenny MacDonald scoring after tremendous build up play involving Alan Gillies, and James Currie.
A comfortable victory for the 4?s who are assured of at least second spot in the league, and a place in the quarter final place in the Plate to look
