Bonnybridge advanced in the Scottish Cup after thrashing Clackmannan Colts 7-1.The defeat was the Colts second of the season as they were outplayed by a very good Bonnybridge side.

Both teams started the match evenly, but Bonnybridge had the lead in the shooting department and they eventually took the lead when a cut back from Bonnybridge's number 9 was fired home by 16 to make it 1-0.

Clackmannan were then pegged back by Bonnybridge and conceded again, number 9 managed to wriggle his way through before placing the ball into the bottom left hand corner for 2-0.

Bonnybridge so nearly made it three when number 9 ran through again, but this time his effort cannoned off the post That was the stroke of luck Clackmannan were looking for as Ross McAra pulled one back for the Colts with an effort from outside the box: After beating two players, McAra's shot flew over the goalkeeper before nestling in the back of the net to reduce the score to 2-1.

However, Clackmannan's hopes for a comeback were dealt a massive blow when Bonnybridge scored a third before half-time: The goal came from a corner where the ball was played low before number 11 slotted the ball home.

Clackmannan were then hustle back for most of the second half and found themselves 4-1 after conceding a penalty for handball. Bonnybridge's number 2 stepped up and scored to increase his side's advantage.

Bonnybridge were dominating the game now and scored 3 more times to push the Colts down into the blues even more.

Full time: Clackmannan Colts 1-7 Bonnybridge

It was not a great day for Clackmannan but with a tough test against Grahamston next week, the Colts will need to pick themselves up if they are to bounce back.
