League leaders KSC Town have the title in their sights after an impressive win at their local rivals. On paper the match looked a tough test for the visitors, but as the Tass heads dropped, KSC turned on the style, with Cammy Thomson laying on three goals and grabbing the goal of the game.
KSC have been in the goals in recent weeks, and were in an attacking mood, enjoying early pressure and midfield possession from the start. Christopher Wilson missed a golden chance on eight minutes, firing just wide from a corner.
Saltire tried to press their opponents, and Joshua Tait fired just over from a good run a minute later. From then on it was virtually one way traffic in the first half.
KSC took the lead on 10 minutes, as William Mclean blasted home Thomson’s squared ball from close range. Five minutes later, these two linked up again from the left for KSC’s second.
Thomson’s corner rebounded back out to him, and this time he played a pinpoint cross for McLean to head his second and put his side firmly in charge.
The visitors were on top now, getting the ball down and creating chances at a high tempo. On 33 minutes they extended their lead. Thomson was again the architect from a left hand corner, from which John Monan blasted home the third goal.
Tass were being penned back and tried to get things going through Tait and the forward runs of Declan Smith and Dylan Champion. But from winning a series of corners and free kicks in the KSC half, they just were unable to trouble James Sinclair’s goal.
It could have been four just before half time as Ben Black crossed for McLean, now on a hat trick. Tyler Fullarton saved well, and again from Thomson’s rebound to keep his side’s deficit at three.
