Whitehill Welfare 0 Kelty Hearts 6

Manager Gary Small made 2 changes from the side that lost at Edusport on Saturday, with Kyle Mitchell and Liam McIntosh coming in for Sean Lally and Ali Smith. Mark Smith was moved back to left back with James McPartlin taking his place in midfield. 

The game was only 5 minutes old when Kelty took the lead. Stephen Husband was played in down the right and his cross from the byline was met by the head of Matthew Gay at the back post and with Ross Jardine wrong footed he found the net. The visitors were well on top going close twice before Brian Ritchie headed in a second, this time from a cross from the other side. Whitehill did come into the game towards the end of the first half but they were unable work any real sight of goal. 

The visitors came back out determined to finish the game as a contest and moments after the restart Jardine showed good reactions to tip a headed effort over. There was no stopping the next attack though as Scott Dalziel nodded down a Matthew Gay cross for Husband to blast home. The visitors were rampant and Dalziel turned provider again crossing for Husband who got to the ball just before Jardine and rolled in his sides fourth of the night. On 57 minutes it was 5-0. Guy Kerr upended Matthew Gay in the box and Husband finished emphatically from the penalty spot for his hat-trick. 10 minutes later Kelty had another one Dalziel slipping a ball into Matthew Ordish who found the bottom corner from outside the box. Thankfully there was no further scoring.
