Peebles Rovers 0
EoS FIRST DIVISION
COLDSTREAM ensured they went into their free week on the top of the pile with a clinical victory over Peebles Rovers.
With Peebles having kicked off, it was quite unbelievable that 14 seconds later the ball was in their own net – Gary Wales slotting one of the quickest ever goals in Home Park history.
Josh Hebdon added a second from a set piece.
Peebles did play some nice football at times and went close with a header and a couple of long-distance efforts.
However, Streamers made it three through Wales and just before the break John Crawford added a fourth.
After the interval, Crawford headed home his second and substitute Coyle completed the rout.
Peebles manager Jason Girdwood told TheSouthern: “We were missing our back four on Saturday, due to suspensions, weddings and work commitments, and that made a huge difference.
“We were quite good going forward, but just couldn’t defend.”
Coldstream must now wait until December 1 for their next league encounter, which is a trip to Yarrow Park to face Selkirk – a game which down the years has always been eventful and a must-see entry for the diary.
Peebles Rovers: C. Lennie, P. Hunter, G. Shortreed, N. Cairns, C. Chalmers, P. Conaghan, L. Conaghan, C. Edgar, J. Manson, J. Adamson, J. Carter. Sub: P. White.
