Fordoun began a hectic run of must win league games and cup finals by thumping @Bar in their first midweek fixture of 2014.
Sunday’s hat-trick hero Iain Cuthill scored from close range to get the ball rolling before Ross Stirling showed great technique to fire home as the ball dropped out of the sky.
@Bar pulled one back when a long ball split the defence and Derek Anderson in the Fordoun goal couldn’t prevent the attacker from firing home. Fordoun soon got back on the goal trial and Kevin Hector notched before Nathan Keddie got his first of the game.
@Bar once again went route one and got success when a defensive slip presented another opportunity which was duly dispatched. Nathan Keddie gave the home side a cushion when he added two more before half time.
HT Fordoun Galaxy 6-2 @Bar FC
Fordoun were playing not just for points but for cup final places and all five substitutes were given an opportunity to impress. Nathan Keddie was replaced early in the second half but managed to grab his fourth of the game before he departed the scene.
Derry Simpson fired home another before substitute Craig Thomson came forward from the back to great effect to grab himself a hat-trick. Logan Cruickshank and his husband Darren Cruickshank also got their names on the score sheet as did returning Galaxy hero Kevin Duncan.
@Bar did enjoy the last goal of the game when an attacker escaped his marker in the final moments and fired home.

Fordoun: Anderson; A Stirling (Norrie); L Cruickshank; R Deans (Thomson); Davies; Hector (R Cruickshank); Keddie (Duncan); R Stirling (Welsh); D Cruickshank; Simpson & Cuthill.
