After last week’s derby success, KSH headed into cup business against St Roch’s.

Management made five changes to the starting line up with Thomson, Hughes, Brand, Walker and new signing Payne all coming into the team.

Five minutes before half time Kennoway looked to have taken the lead.

A corner from the right from Collins was blocked before the ball was sent back out to the KSH wide man and his effort was touched in at the far post by Walker. Much to the disbelief of the players and management the assistant raised his flag for a dubious offside.

On the hour mark the away side took the lead,

A shot was spilled by Thomson and the follow up effort spun up and hit the arm of Mair.

The referee pointed to the penalty spot, again, much to the annoyance of the home contingent.

Dow stepped up and swept the ball into the net.

The killer second goal was a bizarre one.

A free kick a full 35 yards from goal was struck by Dean Kindlan. The ball hit the bar and then struck Thomson on the way out diverting the ball into the goal.

This goal knocked the heart of the home side and a further flurry of substitutions was the final throw of the dice. Balmer brought out a save from Calder with a header.

The third goal was scored when a short corner was whipped in at the front post evading everyone before nestling into the net.

KSH: Thomson, Mair, Couper, Hughes, Wallace, Watson, Kay, Brand, Collins, Payne, Walker.

Subs: Bryce Mansouri Balmer Wilson Roberts Harrison Brodie

KSH MoM Couper.

Next up for KSH is a home game against Haddington.
