Bervie Caley 13s score thirteen goals

the first goal came when McLaughlin crossed for Anderson to control and scoring. S. Smith then pushed forward from full back to slam home the second.

The third came when strong play in the middle from Blacklaw saw him feed Anderson who went through one on one with the keeper and found the corner. The fourth followed almost immediately an Anderson shot was blocked only for Wotherspoon to follow up at back post. Blacklaw played in McLaughlin who lifted the ball over the keeper from the edge of the box for Bervie’s fifth. S. Smith got his head onto another Blacklaw cross which was blocked but Avis scored.

Wotherspoon was brought down on left hand side of the box and with the home side expecting another cross from Blacklaw he opted to smash home a drive at the near post.

there was no let up in pressure in the second half and it was Gordon pressing forward who played the ball through to Anderson to beat the offside trap again, he allowed the keeper to come out before neatly sidestepping the keeper and scoring with his left foot for Bervie’s eighth. The ninth came shortly after when McLaughlin crossed for Blacklaw to slot home.

Bervie had ten shortly after. Dawson’s cross was fumbled by the keeper leaving McLaughlin with a tap in. Bervie were not to be denied for long and McLaughlin was played in by Morris and despite the keeper saving his first effort he followed up to slot him the eleventh and his hat-trick.

shortly after the keeper twice denied Thomson before Wood followed up for the twelfth. Bervie grabbed their last goal when Anderson beat his man on the right to feed Dawson whose lay off was curled home from the edge of the box by Morris.

A comprehensive victory for Bervie and with both strikers scoring hat-tricks one or both of them may have expected the man of the match award, instead it was a joint award again this time to the defence and keeper, not only did they keep a clean sheet however on many occasions they showed good composure passing the ball out from the back, creating angles for one another and starting a number of attacks.
