Galaxy send six past the pix

GALAXY started well and took the lead in the second minute when their front two combined well. Thomson crossed from the left for McCOMISKIE to finish.

R. Welsh then played in McComiskie who shot past the post and from a Murray corner Cuthill sent a header high and wide.

When it began like to look like Fordoun could run away with it Picture House fought back and equalised in nine minutes after a long ball was directed past Fordoun ‘keeper Tough.

Fordoun were ahead again one minute later when THOMSON fired over the House’ keeper from the edge of the box. In the 18th minute Fordoun extended their lead with McCOMISKIE converted a through ball from strike partner Thomson. R Stirling shot past as Fordoun looked to kill the game. In 26 minutes Murray cut in from the corner flag and forced a save from the ‘keeper.

KEDDIE scored a brilliant fourth for Galaxy in the 34th minute when he blasted a shot from 25 yards. In the 35th minute R Stirling played in McComiskie who shot past.

Half-time: Picture House 1, Galaxy 4.

The second half was a more scrappy affair and it was the 56th minute before either team forged a chance. R Welsh was replaced by Hector but it was Picture House who continued to press, with one attacker shooting past, then another seeing a shot blocked. Pearson replaced Murray before THOMSON scored a fifth for Galaxy after a great cross from Hector.

With 18 minutes left Davies replaced Norrie. The final minutes saw Fordoun knock the ball about well and the good football crafted a chance inside the box from which captain A. Stirling should have scored. Fordoun put the game to bed with 10 minutes to play when the ball broke to R. STIRLING in the box and he showed his brother how to finish.

As time ran out Thomson kicked the post when he looked sure to complete his hat-trick.

Next is a cup and league double-header against Hudsons for Fordoun, and Picture House face Montrose Athletic.

On March 16 Fordoun Galaxy presents Mad Dog comedy night, with Scott Forbes as compere. Confirmed are Ed Patrick, Peter Wood, Jamie Jamieson and Duncan Guthrie. Doors open at 7.30pm and tickets, £5, are available from players and the Redhall in Fordoun.
