A hat trick from James McGrattan was the difference as Hillwood Thistle coasted past Stamperland at Hillwood Park in the Paisley Johnstone & District YFL.

The home side started on the front foot with a goal from Aidan Macaskill on the 27th minute and had their keeper, Babakuhi, to thank for keeping the margin as it was going into the second half.
