McBookie West League One



SIX-guns Winton blew away Lugar with a dominant display at Rosebank Park.

Victory moves them up to third spot.

Winton made a good start when they won the ball just outside the Lugar box in the opening minute but a good passing move ended with Jamie McKenna shooting wide.

Thistle began to get into the game and in four minutes a long range Chris Vance shot went wide before a couple of minutes later Chris Lamb got down to smother a low cross from Vance.

Rovers came close in 10 minutes when Jamie McKenna back-heeled a Sean Mears cross from the right, wide of the near post.

Winton took the lead two minutes later when McKenna netted with an overhead kick at the near post after a Jo Maxwell long throw from the left. It was 2-0 a couple of minutes later when a good move saw Davie Cunningham cut inside and lay the ball off to McKenna who played the ball to the back post, where David Adams made no mistake from close range. In 21 minutes Lamb bravely saved a 25-yard Vance free-kick.

Winton bagged a third in 28 minutes when McKenna headed home a Sean Mears free-kick.

Winton continued where they had left off after the restart and despite being held back, Adams turned and had a shot saved by Hart a minute in.

Then in 48 minutes Lamb launched a monster kick to the edge of the Lugar box which David Adams chased then carried on into the box and as Hart came out to close him down he chipped the ball over the keeper and into the empty net.

Adams should probably have made it 5-0 in 56 minutes when he latched on the end of another huge kick-out from Lamb, got into the box and as Hart came out to meet him he chipped the keeper but somehow the ball went wide.

On the hour Chris Lamb made a good save at his near post from the dangerous Conn. Chris Wilson came on for Michael Lennox who had picked up a knock earlier.

In 67 minutes Adams chased another ball into the box but Hart came out of his goal to save at the striker’s feet just inside the box. In 71 minute Adams got the ball from Sean Mears in the box following some good build-up play and with only Hart to beat, he shot wide.

Lugar then got themselves into the game with Winton taking their foot off the gas and becoming a bit careless with their passing.

In 81 minutes the dangerous Conn got the goal his efforts the whole game deserved when he took off down the right wing got to the line shrugging off several challenges before firing home from a tight angle to make it 5-1. Two minutes later an attempted clearance on the edge of the box hit a Thistle player and broke to Darren Curtis who ran in on goal and shot past Lamb to give the hosts some consolation. However Winton completed the scoring when Adams ran on to a good ball from David Wilson, got into the box and shot past the advancing Hart for his hat-trick in 84 minutes.
