Cumbernauld stay top of the league after a very good away victory against Moorlands.
Both teams started brightly with some nice passing and good movement off the ball trying to get there noses in front as these two teams were only separated by one goal in last weeks cup tie.
It was the home team who took the early initiative when they opened the scoring after Cumbernaulds defence showed hesitation when trying to clear there lines allowing moorlands in to take advantage and a 1-0 lead.
That early set back seemed to kick start the away team into gear as they equalised soon after when Jordan Pirrie beating a couple of defenders inside the box squared for Sam Rodger to score with the aid of a slight deflection.
Cumbernauld created one or two more half chances to edge ahead before the break however they passed them up to go in level at the break.
Half Time: Moorlands 1-1 Cumbernauld Colts.
Start of the second half saw Cumbernauld come out smartly on the front foot bossing most of the play and creating most between the two teams.
They took the lead after in form striker Cammy McKay saw his strike from the edge of the area fumbled into the net by the outstretched keeper after he slipped trying to ajust to the shot watching in horror as the ball rolled into the net.
That slice of luck gave the away side the impetus to go forward and try and kill the game off which they did when Cammy McKay put Colts 3-1 ahead when he was put through on goal after Marc Anthony Byrne lobbed the defence and the striker did the rest.
Moorlands created themselves a few openings but lacked that touch in the final third. Cumbernauld continued to attack and sealed the win when McKay got his hat trick after another clinical piece of finishing against his former team which saw his team deservedly take the points.
Full Time: Moorlands 1-4 Cumbernauld Colts
