Men's 1's storm into Semi Final

Clydesdale arrived at Bellahouston to face the Men's 1's, in the Scottish Cup quarter final in a game billed as the game of the day by the SHU website. Clydesdale have had some good results this season and had high hopes of springing an upset in this one, especially as they had several former Burne players in thier ranks. Kelburne retained the same squad from the day before and were keen to make up for last years disappointing exit at the semi final stage.
 

Burne started well and were soon on the offensive and driven forward by the probing runs from midfield of Michael Christie and Gordon McIntyre they were beginning to find gaps in the Clydesdale rearguard. Clydesdale also suffered an early blow when ex burne midfielder Adam Bain had to leave the field due to injury.

 
Kelburne took the lead after ten minutes when top scorer Alan Forsyth finished off a fine passing move. A second quickly followed as Josh Cairns scored a high drag flick from a short corner which left Stuart Brown in the Clydesdale goal helpless.
 
Burne continued to press the Clydesdale back line and the pressure paid of when talismanic front man Johnny Christie scored from close range to continue his fine run of goal scoring form. Cairns then added a second from the set piece, this time with a trademark low flick.
 
Kelburne continued to play the game at a high tempo in the second half and played some of thier best hockey of the season as they were able to add 5 more goals to the tally. Some fine passing lead to Gareth Hall, continuing his return from injury with a hat trick and Kenny Bain celebrating his birthday with a double.
 
Clydesdale had a rare opportunity from a short corner but this was well saved by Mark Fulton in goal.
 
A dominant performance from the side and they will be looking forward to the semi finals in May. Next week they travel to Dundee to face Menzieshill and hope to wrap up the league title.
