Today's game between St Mirren and Broomhill at a cloudy St James' park was a goal-fest which saw a total of eleven goals with St Mirren scoring nine and Broomhill scoring two.
It was St Mirren who got the action underway and from the start, both teams battled for the ball with each of them finding early chances. Broomhill got the first chance when Jude Taylor fired a shot from the edge of the box but only to see it go wide. Next was St Mirren when Josh Beattie had a chip shot which went just over the bar.
Broomhill came closest to score first when Ben Arthur put a low cross into Aaron Robeson who had his shot saved Mirren keeper Liam Kelly but the ball rebounded to Craig Duffus who's shot was also saved then eventually cleared by the defence.
Broomhill may have had the closest chance but it was St Mirren who found the net first when Josh Beattie had a shot from the edge of the box which beat the diving Broomhill keeper.
After the goal, both teams were still evenly matched on the balance of play but St Mirren looked as if they could sore again when Declan English had an ambitious shot from long range which troubled the keeper resulting in a corner which found the head Thomas Turner but the ball went wide.   
St Mirren continued their goal threat when Thomas Turner found himself again with another few chances but the keeper dealt with them well, keeping the score at 1-0.
The next chance of the match fell to Broomhill when a bad clearance fell to Jude Taylor who had a shot which was saved well.
St Mirren responded well when Marcus Huston had a sot from a wide angle saved. St Mirren then increased there lead when Marcus Huston crossed the ball to Ronan Burns who curled the ball into the keeper's left side of the net.
Broomhill looked for an immediate response when Jude Taylor had a shot that beat the keeper but only hit the side net.
St Mirren looked to put the game beyond doubt before half time when Declan English and Josh Beattie both had shots which didn't trouble the goalkeeper.
Half Time: St Mirren YFC 2-0 Broomhill SC City
Broomhill kicked off the second half which featured no less than nine goals in quick succession.      
The first came for Broomhill who looked to get back into the game and did when a defensive mix up from St Mirren allowed Jude Taylor to slot the ball past the keeper.
Just after the restart St Mirren restored their two goal lead when Marcus Huston's powerful shot from close range, nestled into the corner of the net.
Mirren went on to score again within minuets to make the score 4-1 when Thomas Turner's edge of the box shot found the net, past the diving keeper.
Within what felt like seconds, St Mirren scored again when Turner chipped the keeper after receiving a nice pass from Steven Bendoris.
Mirren came through on goal again when Steven Bendoris slipped the ball passed the goal keeper after some very skilful work from himself.
At this point in the second half, the action seemed to slow until Ronan Burns sparked the game back to life with a goal for St Mirren.
Broomhill were next on the score sheet when they found a consolation goal when the ball was taken around the Mirren goal keeper and slotted the ball into the empty net after two previous clearances off the line.
St Mirren got back to there scoring ways however when, substitute Kyle Dohan cut into the box an drilled the ball into the left side of the net.
The final Goal of the game was yet again St Mirren's Steven Bendoris put the ball past the charging goal keeper to conclude the scoring for the game.
There was no more clear cut opportunities in the game as the referee blew time on our goal Benazir.
