The Americans came to Forthbank as favourites and left on the wrong end of a 3-0 defeat at the hands of a Scotland squad in the final stages of their build-up for the Commonwealth Games in Delhi next month.  Pleasing for coach Russell Garcia was the manner in which his charges totally dominated proceedings against a side three places ahead in the world rankings, and the score could have been even higher with a little more composure in front of goal.

After early chances fell to Cammie Fraser, Gavin Byers and John Harris, Glynhill Kekburne striker Kenny Bain celebrated his fiftieth Scotland cap with the opener in 15 minutes.  Sheer persistence by Byers created the opening, Bain feinted his first shot to take out the keeper and then fired the ball into the empty net.

Five minutes later a deliberate foul on Fraser brought a penalty corner for the Scots, the set piece broke down with a poor stop but fortunately the ball fell to Chris Nelson whose shot was fired under the diving body of the American keeper for the second.

After the interval indiscipline reduced the Americans to nine players and the Scots took full advantage.  The Yanks failed to clear the danger in their circle, Inverleith`s Stephen Dick picked up the loose ball and placed a low shot beyond the reach of the keeper to put the Scots three up.

The Americans were now under the cosh with Bain, Byers, Fraser and Alan Forsyth all creating further openings but most of the efforts went tantalisingly wide of the target.  Only in the closing five minutes did the visitors bring Jamie Cachia into proceedings, but the Scottish keeper comfortably kept the clean sheet.
