Campsie hit six in last 16

Campsie Black Watch
Leith Athletic
U21's Scottish Cup Round 3
Merkland Astro Turf
27 October 2013
The game could not be played at Station Road as the council had put the pitch off on Friday so it had to be moved to Merkland Astro Turf.

This we thought would suit Leith more than us as they play all their home games on astro turf and also train twice a week on it, however this was not to be the case. 

Campsie started the more positive knocking the ball about as well as I’ve seen on astro and it was only 5 minutes on the clock when Leith made a pass back which the goalkeeper lifted, the indirect free kick could not have been any more than 3 yards from goal so Leith set up a full wall that took up the whole of the goal line but as the free kick was passed to McWilliams to hit the wall broke and McWilliams fierce shot hit the back of the net for the opener.
After some good football from both teams, McGuire burst from midfield and chipped the keeper who could only watch as the ball sailed into goal to double Campsie’s lead. 

Two minutes later up stepped Cassidy who picked up a pass from Elliot and made no mistake finishing the move off for three nil. 

Campsie were well on top now and when a corner was swung in to the back post to be met by Hamill it looked odds on he was going to score only for the ball to come back off the post but Prentice was there to clean up 4-0 and half time. 
Half Time: Campsie Black Watch 4-0 Leith Athletic

The second half was much the same as the first with good football being played by both teams but with Campsie the more dangerous of the two.

Murney had a good shot saved in the 48th minute but that man Cassidy was there to slot the ball home again to make the score five nil.

But the best was yet to come when in the 64th minute McWilliams found himself through on goal and hit a 25 yard screamer high into the net to make the final score Campsie Black Watch 6, Leith Athletic 0 which means Campsie are into the quarter finals of the Scottish Cup.
Full Time: Campsie Black Watch 6-0 Leith Athletic
