Swifts on a roll
We hosted Lumphinans today at the Riverside.
We made a few changes to the starting line up but the boys picked up where they left off from last week.
Good early pressing had Lumphinans on the back foot and Blane, Rohan and Ruairidh all went close in the opening 10 minutes.
Blane continued to cause them problems with his running and determination, Ruairidh being the provider on numerous occasions but Blane just couldn't open the scoring.
Our opening goal came in the 21st minute, some good play down the left from Bryson and Nathan forced a corner, Ruairidh hit it low towards the near post and Mash timed his run and smashed an unstoppable shot into the roof of the net.
Blane continued to push for his goal and it came in the 28th minute, some neat passing found him unmarked inside the box and he fired home.
We then had more chances with Troy and Adam going close before Blane smashed one of the post.
Matt C got our third with a great run and lobbed the keeper form 15 yards on the stroke of half time.
Again we continued to create chances with a few close ones before Nathan McK grabbed our fourth when he pounced on a loose ball to slot home.
Adam then played a neat ball through the defence, the keeper came but missed it and Blane anticipated this and slotted home in the 74th minute.
Blane finished off his hat trick in the 79th minute latching onto a through ball before lashing a low shot past the keeper.
We then saw out the rest of the game.
Excellent win lads to keep the momentum going.
MOTM- Blane, fantastic work rate, never stopped chasing every through ball and got his hatrick as well.
