Cumbernauld Colts   7  v  1  Whitehill Welfare

A week after both sides recorded convincing wins in their first competitive matches of the season both teams were looking forward to this week's match at Broadwood.

After an even start it was Colts who began to take control of the game, playing some excellent football in the opening stages before taking the lead from the spot as midfielder Fraser Sheridan slotted the ball home past the goalkeeper. Colts continued to dominate in the half keeping the ball well, and it wasn't long before it was 2-0 and it was Sheridan again scoring his second of the game after showing great desire to get across the defender at the front post to place the ball into the back of the net.

Whitehill seen more of the ball before the end of the half but were unable to break down Colts at the back as the score at the interval was 2-0 to the home side.
Colts made the first substitution of the match at half time, with Dylan O'Hagan replacing Ross Ballantyne to make his first appearance of the season returning from suspension.

As the second half got underway it was the Whitehill who were out the traps quickest and pulled a goal back after some poor defending allowed the visiting striker the chance to make it 2-1.

It wasn't too long before Colts regained their two goal lead this time from a corner, where defender Jeff Fergus rose tallest in the box to make the score 3-1 with an excellent header. From here Colts regained control of the game and made it 4-1 shortly after with a cool finish from midfielder Flanagan.

With the win all but confirmed Colts showed no signs of taking their foot off the pedal, following a superb solo run from striker Alex Foy his cross fired off of the Whitehill defender who could do nothing but watch the ball hit the net to make it 5-1.

Whitehill to their credit kept battling away and showed that they too are capable of playing some good football as was evident from their result the previous week. But the home defence stood strong and when Colts worked the ball up to the other end of the pitch, Flanagan expertly sold the defender a dummy and then rounded the keeper with the same move to put Colts 6-1 ahead. And it was striker Foy who finished the scoring, slotting the ball home for 7, capping off not only a solid individual performance but an all-round top display from the young Colts.
