THE two local sides battled it out in the Taylor Sullivan Challenge Cup third round.

Kennoway’s Ryan Thomson put the visitors 1-0 up within 40 seconds.

It wasn’t long before Kennoway added a second goal, with a well-worked move allowing David Thomson to put the ball beyond the Methilhill ‘keeper.

The match was now solidly a one-way affair and it wasn’t long before Martyn Thomson added his name to the scoresheet with a third for Kennoway.

Jamie Armitt was next on the mark, contributing the visitors’ fourth goal shortly before half-time.

Kennoway’s Marc Cramb made a welcome return to action after an injury-enforced break, coming on for Martyn Thomson, and promptly showed what Kennoway have been missing in his absence.

Cramb terrorised the Methilhill defence almost immediately and the hosts had no answer to his pace.

The resulting goal was inevitable and Cramb joined the long list of Kennoway goalscorers on the day to mark his comeback in some style.

The goal festival wasn’t over though, and Kennoway were awarded a penalty late in the game and given a chance to complete the rout from the spot.

Ryan Thomson delivered the visitors’ sixth goal of the game and his own second, calmly putting the ball beyond the Methilhill ‘keeper to send the Kennoway fans home with smiles on their faces.
