Kelburne Men?s 4th XI: 1

Saturday the 30th of October

The 4XI set out with a 4-5-1 hoping it would stop the unbeaten 3rdXI who started with their usual 4-3-3. The game started off fast paced with the 3?s proving with their superior skill why they?re the 3rdXI passing the ball around with great accuracy looking threatening each time they had the ball. This was proven when sadly within minutes of hit off Anderson had scored, a mistake by the 4?s keeper made for an easy finish for the 3rdXI 1-0.

Minute?s later good skill was shown by Walker when he skipped by the 4?s defence and finished his impressive run with a great finish. 2-0

The 3?s continued there dominance of the match when Cairns fired his drag flick into the roof of the net. 3-0

The onslaught continued when Tervit scored the fourth goal for the 3?s, 4-0.

But the score didn?t tell the whole story the 4XI did have some very good possession this showed when Alfie pulled a goal back from a very tight angle to make the score 4-1.

Half time

Both teams lost some of their concentration and composure at the start of the second half as loose passes were common.

The 3?s 5th goal was somewhat controversial as the 4?s thought there should have been a free hit in the build up but the 3?s took full advantage and McInnes slotted home the 5th. 5-1

Soon after the 3?s won a short corner and continued their ruthlessness with a great finish into the bottom corner by Walker for his second making the score 6-1.

But the best was saved for last when McInnes hit a wonder strike into the top right corner for his second, finishing the scoring.

A dramatic finish was in-order as Bremner was judged to have kicked the ball inside the D, Alfie Gillies stepped up to take the penalty flick but unfortunately missed.

Cairns spent some time off the park after being awarded a yellow card, Full time 7-1.

Kelburne 4th XI are away to face Glasgow Accies next week.
