Six separate goal scorers for the visitors aided them in their convincing win over the hosts, Real Fife, in the FFDL Second Division.
Real Fife nearly got off to the perfect start when agile frontman Sebastian Torkovski rounded Kirkcaldy goalkeeper Conner Auchterlonie and fired his shot from a tight angle, which was then heroically cleared off the line by the powerful defender Steven White in the opening minute of the match.
Minutes later, Kirkcaldy winger Mitch Carstairs got on the end of a lofted ball and managed to coolly poke the ball past Real goalkeeper Aaron Buchannan in the fourth minute of the match to put the visitors ahead. Kirkcaldy’s lead was soon doubled when fullback, Tyler Coventry found his attempted cross nestle in the top left corner in the 8th minute of the match. I’m sure he will claim it as a shot, however.
Kirkcaldy continued their dominance in the early stages of the match which resulted in both White and Amadu Buh coming close to adding a third, in the 15th minute of the match. Buchannan pulled off a tremendous save in the 18th minute of the match to deny Carstairs from doubling his tally at close range.
The third was finally found by Kirkcaldy when tricky midfielder Naari Ruzaag danced his way through the Real Fife defence and sent a low powerful shot into the bottom right corner, in off the post in the 20th minute of the match.
Real Fife made a great effort to get back into the game before the interval when Torkovski managed to get a shot away, which was firmly denied by Auchterlonie in the 25th minute of the match. This was then followed by another great save from Auchterlonie, denying Connor Kemp this time from close range in the 30th minute of the match and also being the final chance of the first half.
