Clydebank High School progressed to the third round of the U13 League Cup with a comprehensive 9-2 win over the Vale of Leven Academy (VOLA).
VOLA had the best chance to open the scoring after an even first eight minutes with both teams trying to get a hold on the game. A ball was played over the top from midfield and Scott Inglis lifted his effort over Gavin Neil in the Clydebank goal but his effort was narrowly wide.
Clydebank took the lead after 10 minutes thanks to the first of three goals from Cameron Neil. Conor Gray whipped a corner in from the right and Neil rose well to thump a header past Vale keeper Callum Caldwell.
Clydebank added a second on 17 minutes after forward Lewis Jamieson was chopped down 35 yards out. Jay Kearny stepped up and curled a shot towards goal that lobbed Caldwell to double their advantage.
Shortly after, lively winger Alisdair Scholes made it 3-0. A defensive mixup allowed Scholes to nick in at the far post and head the ball over the line from close range.
Stuart Alexander then pulled a goal back for the Vale just before half time. The forward picked the ball up 35 yards out and ran at the heart of the Clydebank defence before slotting the ball past Gavin Neil to give hope to the hosts heading into half time.
