Kelso United 5
CONFIDENCE was high in the home camp and United continued their good run of form with a comprehensive win at Woodside Park, writes George Riley.
It was a five-star display by the Tweedsiders, with the victory making it five wins out of six for Prof Blaikie’s men.
The manager was delighted by the team’s performance.
“Even though we had three first team regulars missing, this was probably our best performance of the season,” he said.
The hosts were one-up with a minute played. Sean Angus put a cross into the box, where Jordan Lauder fired home from six yards.
Ten minutes later, Kelso increased their lead when Graeme Gillie rose above the defence to head past Paul Tansey in the Eyemouth goal.
The visitors had a chance a minute later when Steven Shennon was through on goal, but Kelso keeper Scott Dowie was equal to the challenge.
United kept pressing and the third goal came in the 38th minute when the ball broke to Des Burnett, who swept a left-foot shot into the net.
The same man made it four a minute later with an eight-yard strike.
United started the second half as they left the first, pressing forward, and midway through, Kelso made it five when Burnett again put a shot past Tansey.
United continued to push forward right to the whistle.
