A dominant display from City of Glasgow College ensured they took the BUCS Scottish 5A title with a resounding 5-0 win over Glasgow Caledonian University.
An unfortunate James Turnbull own goal was added to by a brace from James Martin and a James Wilson strike before the break. Substitute Chris Russell put the icing on the cake with a second-half fifth to round off a powerful display from City of Glasgow, who have now scored 15 goals in their last three games.
The tone was set early on, with Martin in particular causing mayhem with his directness and pace in-behind the Caley defence. It was Martin who had the first effort of the game as he cut in from the right, before lashing a low effort wide.
COG were pushing forward at every opportunity as they looked to hit the front. Martin won a couple of free-kicks around the penalty area, again won through his pacey runs. Both free-kicks came close, with the first clipping the outside of the post before the second was curled just over the bar.
A deep corner from COG nearly crept in, but Michael Linton was there to clear it off the line.
It took another corner to give COG the lead. A deep cross seemed to cause chaos in the Caledonian box. A scramash ensued that saw the ball rattle off the unfortunate Turnbull and into the net, giving COG the lead they deserved.
It took Caledonian around 25 minutes before they had their first effort on goal. It came from a free-kick won through Scott Bruce's pace. The resultant cross was deflected into the path of Cal Craigie, whose low effort was easily held by the composed Cameron Godfrey.
The slight scare seemed to spark Martin back into life for COG, and his sheer pace broke in behind Caley on another two occasions within a minute. The first saw him cut inside and curl just past the post, before he again broke through and slotted past Nathan McKenna for 2-0.
The second goal sparked some positive play from Glasgow Caledonian, but they were up against a stout COG defence, protected extremely well by Mazime Neossi that refused the university side any opportunities to break through them.
And it was soon 3-0. A lovely move involving Cammy McIntosh and Martin saw the former cross perfectly for the latter to bury first-time into the bottom right-hand corner.
Wilson rounded off a sensational first-half for COG with a clean strike from 25 yards that McKenna failed to deal with, with the goalkeeper unfortunately parrying it into his own net.
