Another good Superleague win this time at wind swept Merson Park, Buckie.

Not the best of starts when within 2 minutes we were 1-0 down. A poor pass back by Taylor Christie to Kieran Davidson left the defender to commit a foul and from the free kick the cross was bundled into the Saints net.

Playing with the strong wind did not make it that easy for Saints with the ball constantly over running. But on 26 minutes Greg Mackie latched onto a through ball and lobbed the advancing keeper to make it 1-1.

Playing with the wind in the second half was always going to suit our game and within two minutes of the restart Taylor Christie headed home from a corner to make it 2-1. Five minutes later it was 3-1 when Mike Bruce headed into the net from close range.

It should have been 4-1 on 62 minutes when Colbert scored after a good run a square ball from Simpson, but despite the linesman not raising his flag, the referee consulted his assitant and got him to change his mind. Crucial decision as that would have killed off the game and with that let off Buckie pulled a goal back on 73 minutes to make the game interesting.

But Saints still had the upper hand and it was Craig Simpson's run down the left and step inside that allowed him to fire in a low shot that found the corner of the net on 84 minutes to make it 4-2.
