Swifts march on

Match day 7
We hosted Elgin Star today at the Riverside.
Elgin came looking for the win that would draw them level with us at the top of the table, we were looking to stretch our lead to 6 points with a game in hand.
Right from the first whistle the boys took the game to Elgin with the first shot on goal inside 30 seconds.
We were playing good football with the boys pinning Elgin in their half, chance after chance was created but every shot seemed to just miss the target or pulled a great save out of their keeper.
We eventually made the breakthrough in the 30th minute when Lewis McD slammed home a close range shot.
More chances followed before Rohan slotted home the 2nd in the 42nd minute.
The second half started the same as the 1st and we made it 3 through Nathan McK in the 47th minute when he followed up a shot to slide it home.
Our strikers also got the goals they deserved with Blane firing in an unstoppable shot from a tight angle after some good running.
Ru finished off the game in 61st minute with a well taken and well deserved goal.
This was as good as I've seen the boys play all year and the scoreline did not flatter them, they were excellent from start to finish and all of them played their part.
We are away to Rothes next week in the Scottish Cup 3rd round tie and hopefully we can continue this form.
