Fife Southern picked up their first league win of the season at a muddy Kinross where the home team are still searching for their first win. A hat-tricks from Oran Storrie, a Andrew Gallacher double, strikes from Harrison Tait and Ryan Donaldson plus an own goal was enough to seal the three points despite goals from Euan Duthie and a double from Sean Cowe for the home side.
It took less than a minute for the visitors to put their stamp on the match. The ball was played through midfield and found Ryan Donaldson on the edge of the box. He took a touch before rolling the ball under the keeper to give Fife Southern the perfect start to proceedings.
Kinross fought back and seemingly were on top after a rude awakening. Their pressure paid off as a clearance only found Allen Saunders. His speculative shot was too hot to handle for Steven Brasher and Duthie was on hand to slot in the rebound to draw the score level.
Fife Southern spent no time in fighting back. Less than 60 seconds after conceding they were back in front. A ball put forward caused chaos within the Kinross defence and it nicked off Tino Antonio Mackay Palacios before bobbling past the stretching Lewis Bathgate and nestling in the back of the net.
The visitors were in no mood to give up their lead this time and pressed for a third. Jamie Divertie put an effort wide but not long later Fife Southern got their third to give themselves a little cushion. Storrie got the ball on the edge of the box and volleyed it past the keeper.
A tight contest brought few chances with the hosts slightly on top and Liam Murray came close to closing the gap. Fife Southern weren’t to be discounted and Lewis Cox had to clear the ball off the line to stop the visitors increasing their lead.
