Hutchison Vale started the day one place below today's opponents but moved above them in the league table after a 5-2 win.
A goal from Burnside in the first half was followed up with second half goals from Kerr, Grotlin, Williamson and Hutchison with Stevens and MacFarlane getting on the score sheet for the home side.
Salvesen got the game underway at a very chilly and windy Forrester High School and with the wind in their favour started the brighter. The opening five minutes saw Salvesen create a couple half chances when Sean Elliot shot over the bar and then did the same with a 20 yard free kick from the right hand side.
Elliot was involved again after Shaun Stevens played him in but he pulled his shot wide this time but nearly capitalized on a mistake by the visitor's only minutes later after Hutchie's Ryan Hutchison attempted clearance fell into his path but he lost his footing at the vital moment which allowed Hutchison to get back and clear the ball.
Elliot, who was causing problems for the Hutchie back line, drove in on goal down the right but with team mates looking for the ball into the box he went himself and blasted into the side netting.
The first real chance of the game came with 16 minutes gone and it was the home side who had a great opportunity to open the scoring after Bryan Pollock 18 yards out was given all the time in the world by Hutchie to pick his spot but fired straight at Scott Page in the visitors goal.
The first chance of the game was closely followed by the first corner of the game and again it was in the home sides favour. Elliot played in a corner to the far post which was met by Scott Johnston but he failed to make the right contact with his header and the ball went up in the air and he then put it out for a goal kick at the second attempt.
Hutchie nearly caught out McGinley in the home goal after Pollock played in a left sided free kick which looked to be harmlessly going over the bar until the wind held the ball up which then proceeded to come of the top of the bar much to Salvesen's relief.
It was Page in the Hutchie goal who was next called into action when Grant Aitken set up that man again Elliot who hit a ferocious strike which Page could only palm away.
Adam Murray played a super ball into the Salvy box and Craig Williamson went for the finish on the full volley but just failed to connect properly to score what would have been a spectacular goal which saw Johnston then clear at the back post for the home side.
Williamson then looked like he was opening the scoring for the visitors after his looping header seemed goal bound but the wind held the ball up and McGinley claimed comfortably.
Salvesen's Johnston picked up the first booking of the game in the 25th minute after giving away a free kick which would prove costly later in the game. The resulting free kick was played in by Robertson and after a scramble at the far post the ball fell to Devin Burnside who blasted home from close range on the 26th minute.
Hutchie had their tails up now and came close again after Dean Robertson played a delightful long ball into the path of Jonathan Grotlin but McGinley spread himself well to deflect the Hutchie mans low driven shot wide for a corner.
Salvesen had a couple of good opportunities to try and get back into the game with ten minutes remaining of the half. Stevens got into a good position but shot wide from 20 yards out in a central position then he followed up by blasting over the bar from a free kick.
Hutchison picked up their first yellow card after name sake Hutchison was booked for the challenge leading up to the free kick on 35 minutes.
William Kerr was next to test McGinley in the home goal who saved well but the rebound found Williamson and with the goal at his mercy he miss kicked his shot and the opportunity was gone.
Salvesen pushed forward looking for the equalizer and this led to Hutchie picking up their second caution of the game with a couple of minutes to go in the half after Robertson stupidly kicked the ball away after the home team were awarded a free kick.
