Neilston 3 Lugar 0


NEILSTON ........................3


NEILSTON leapt to the top of the Superleague First Division on goal difference with a well-worked victory over Lugar Boswell Thistle.

With Lugar's Rosebank Park being declared unplayable, the match was transferred to the Brig o'Lea and Sammy Johnston's side took full advantage.

Thistle started well and in the 15th minute Neilston goalkeeper Brian Hewitt got down well to make a save from Paul Cameron. Andy Boyle then had a chance but lost the opportunity when the ball took a bad bounce on the hard surface.

Then midway through the half Alex Duffy had another chance for Lugar, but this time he drove over the crossbar.

This Duffy shot goes just over.

Neilston finally got going in the 37th minute when Derek Kennedy set up Gordon Smith for a shot at goal, but the forward's effort rolled wide of target.

Half time 0-0

In the second 45, Neilston looked a more attacking threat up front and in 47 minutes Lugar goalie Stuart Leavy did well to save from Chris Cameron.

A minute later and the 'Ton took the lead thanks to a wonderful solo effort from Kennedy, who beat the keeper to the ball before shooting home from a tight angle.

Neilston increased their lead in the 51st minute and again Kennedy was the scorer, hammering the ball high into the corner of the Lugar net.

But the 'Ton star wasn't finished and he bagged his hat-trick in 54 minutes with a tremendous shot from the left which hit the far upright before rolling along the line and crept in off the opposite side of the woodwork.

Lugar tried to hit back and Paul Cameron's shot went narrowly past the Neilston goal. Patrick Walker and Craig Pettigrew also had chances, but it was not to be and Neilston ran out deserved winners.

Hewitt saves from Walker.



Walker heads wide.





 Pettigrew misses a chance to pull one back.
