Blue Brazil moved level on points with Abernethy YFC in the ACA Plate Championship after a hotly contested match at Powrie Park.
Four goals from Kieran Wilson and one each from Jamie McEwan, Joe Potter and Gavin Cowie helped secure the points for the Cowdenbeath side. Sebastian Merone and Liam Hennessey netted for Abernethy, but it was not enough to preserve the home sides 100% start to the season.
Both sides went into the game in fine form, having scored Sixty-One goals between them in the league so far, while only conceding nine.
The game started at a furious pace and it was the home side who carved out the first chance, with Ross McGowan forcing a save from Blue Brazil keeper’ Cameron Coyne.
However it was the away side who struck first, with the impressive Wilson firing in a free kick from just outside the area.
The game was being played out in midfield with some big tackles from both teams, but as the half progressed it was Blue Brazil who began to create the better chances.
McEwan latched on to a fine through ball but couldn’t get his shot passed Andrew Roberton in the Abernethy goal. McEwan had another sight of goal moments later but pulled his shot just wide of the post.
Wilson was next to go close when played through one on one, but was denied by a fine rushing save from Roberton.
After weathering a period of pressure, Abernethy were almost level after 20 minutes when Logan Gilmarton headed wide from a Jack Hutchison free kick.
Blue Brazil doubled their lead after 25 minutes when McEwan was again played in behind the Abernethy defence, this time rounding the onrushing keeper and slotting the ball left footed into the empty net.
The two goal lead lasted just over five minutes, however, as Blue Brazil were undone from a corner. The ball was swung in from the right hand side and Merone rose highest in a packed penalty area to direct a downward header into the net.
It was end to end action for much of the game, and within three minutes Blue Brazils two goal lead was restored, when Wilson broke clear of the last defender and knocked the ball beyond the goalkeeper, helping himself to his second and his team’s third.
