Bervie through to Raymond Kelly Trophy Final

Bervie qualified for the final of the Raymond Kelly Trophy on Saturday with a strong 7-2 display in poor conditions.

Bervie kicked off with the wind behind them which was both advantageous but also difficult to judge the weight of the pass. However they were 2-0 up within 15 minutes thanks to a Turner double.

Turner then turned provider for the third on 30 minutes cutting the ball back to Mickevicius who opened his body to place an excellent goal from the egde of the box.

Weather came into play for the fourth before half time with a ball lost by the kepper and Salmond outmuscling his marker to score.

The second half started with a bit of controversy. The referee stopped the game with Bervie in possession to caution one of the Westdyke defenders for overzealous comments. The game was restarted with a drop ball that Bervie did not contest allowing Westdyke to return the ball downfield. Unfortunately the bounce eluded McNaught who had to divert for a corner.

The resulting corner was well met by the Westdyke centre half to pull one back. A few moments later in almost a carbon copy of the first Westdyke goal the centre half was again allowed space to score a good header for 4-2.

It was Bervie who would score again and effectively put the game to bed, Blacklaw taking the ball down on the run with an excellent first touch to break into the box and cut back for Collie to score, strike from nearly 30 yards out and hit underside of the bar on way in.

Five minutes later Turner tapped in for his second hatrick in recent weeks after a Collie shot was saved.

Bervie rounded off the scoring five minutes from the end with another good goal. Collie took the ball on the left wing and played a neat pass on to pick out a good run into the box from Turner who in turn squared for Blacklaw to slot beneath the keeper and cap a fine performance for both himself and the team.
