REFEREE Chris Hudson was surprised the pitch at the Galaxy Bowl was playable after the recent April showers, but it was and the game got under way on time.
Fordoun pinned back the House in the opening exchanges. Tough hit the bar after an R. Welsh corner in eight minutes and six minutes later McComiskie fired over.
Next McComiskie forced a save from the House ‘keeper and from the resultant corner R. Welsh played the ball short to Norrie who crossed for TOUGH to head home and give Galaxy the lead.
In 24 minutes the visiting number one made an error which gifted A. Stirling a chance but he put past the post. Shortly after this McComiskie worked himself some space before shooting over.
It was 2-0 in 38 minutes when A. STIRLING tapped into an empty net after another R. Welsh cross.
Keddie was next to benefit from an R. Welsh pass but saw the visiting ‘keeper save with his legs.
A third goal came four minutes before the interval when another R. Welsh cross wasn’t cleared and CUTHILL fired home.
And only two minutes later a Keddie chip was clawed away by the ‘keeper for a corner which went straight in from the boot of R. WELSH.
It was a great half for those with Roy Welsh in their dream team, as he contributed with a goal and two assists.
Half-time: Fordoun Galaxy 4, Picture House 0.
Three minutes into the second half Deans put the ball straight into the ‘keeper’s arms after an R. Welsh corner.
R. Stirling then sent Deans in on goal but the shot was saved.
I. Welsh finally had a save to make in the 64th minute when he pushed away a shot from distance.
It was 5-0 Galaxy after 70 minutes when Deans crossed from the left and KEDDIE steered the ball over the line.
Two minutes later McComiskie cut along the by-line and got a shot away which was deflected onto the bar by the House ‘keeper. The ball broke into the box where a foul was committed and Fordoun earned a penalty kick. R. STIRLING saw his spot kick saved before scoring the rebound.
With five minutes to play Norrie swung in a cross which was turned into his own net by a House defender to make the final tally seven.
