AM Soccer put in a tremendous performance against an under strength Kinross side to seal a comprehensive victory. An Errol Vella hat-trick, four from Mark McKenzie, six from Louis Appere, a double from Matthew Gow, Ross Mutch, an own goal, Bradley Etchells two and a second half hat-trick from Jason Burns secured a huge victory for the visitors.
The floodgates were opened within twelve seconds when Vella pinched the ball off Josh Anderson and slotted it under the keeper to give the visitors the perfect start.
This was a sign of things to come as McKenzie doubled the lead on three minutes when he headed home Kieran Fox’s corner despite the best efforts of Allen Saunders on the line trying to clear.
It was three a couple of minutes later when good work down the left wing by Appere played in McKenzie to finish it off but the striker was denied a three minute hat-trick by Michael Drysdale when the defender headed the ball off the line twice to keep Kinross in the game.
Appere didn’t take long to get himself on the scoresheet when he headed home another Fox corner. Gow made it five after thirteen minutes by turning the last Kinross defender before unleashing a venomous strike across the keeper and into the far corner.
Mutch increased the lead as he stole the ball off Drysdale enabling him a clear run on Lewis Bathgates goal to slot the ball home. Five minutes later and Mutch turned provider when he laid the ball on a silver platter for McKenzie to tap home to complete his hat-trick.
Vella was next to complete his hat-trick as he rolled the ball past Bathgate after collecting a long ball from defence. Appere was next for AM Soccer slashing home the rebound after his initial shot was saved before the visitors reached double figures as Vellas optimistic cross evaded everyone and found the far corner of the net.
A stroke of misfortune for Kinross surrounded the eleventh as Gows shot was inadvertently put into his own net by Bathgate while in the process of saving it.
The visitors weren’t finished for the first half as Etchells and McKenzie both had tap ins in the final couple of minutes of the first half.
