SAINTS 7 Dufftown 1

Posted by Gordon Humble on Oct 28 2016 at 05:00PM PDT

Back to winning ways with a vengeance, creating chances as before but the difference was in the taking of them, and today it was in the second half that the visitors were run ragged.

But in only the 3rd minute it looked as though Duuftown would take the lead when from a clear offside position a Dufftown forward was denied by a good save from Lyndain O'Brien in Saints goal. Four minute later though, we took the lead when from  a neat flick by Greg Mackie Devin Colbert fired home a low angled drive to score his first goal since retruning from Cove Rangers just over a week ago.

Despite total dominance, it wasn't until the 24th minute that  the lead was increased when Sam Smith picked out Colbert with a cross for the forward to head home his second of the day. Colbert then headed past from a good position before Steve Travers hit high and wide just before half time.

Into the second half and it was attack right from the start. Colbert scored his hat trick on 58 minutes after a surging run from Craig Simpson and a square ball. On 63 minutes it was a very similar move that made four goals for Colbert and 4-0 to Saints.

Dufftown did have a chance on 76 minutes but O'Brien pulled off a fine save from an angled shot. But it was Saints who scored five minutes later when Colbert back headed to Seamus Croll who beat the keeper to the ball to make it 5-0. Simpson finished off a mazy run to make it 6-0 after 78 minutes with Grant Munro then making it 7-0 on 82 minutes.

Dufftown got a conoslation gaol with five minutes remaining.
