Red Star tri­umph to crush Cardross

Argyllshire Advertiser - - SPORT -

RED STAR con­tin­ued their good start to the sea­son last Satur­day as they wel­comed Cardross AFC to a wet and windy Joint Cam­pus 3G.

The home side wel­comed back Aaron Moore from in­jury and sus­pen­sion, and it took the Star cap­tain less than a minute to put his side in front, af­ter he latched on to a through ball from Kieran Moore for 1-0.

Star were in no mood to al­low their op­po­nents back into the match and raced into a 4-0 lead at the break thanks to fur­ther goals from Kieran Moore with a dou­ble and Ciaran McPhie.

At the other end, the Red Star back three of Luke Naisby, Kyle Sel­fridge and Lu­cas Alder­son were cop­ing well with the aerial threat posed by a phys­i­cal Cardross at­tack.

With the wind at their backs go­ing into the sec­ond half, Red Star looked to add to their tally and did so with Rab Docherty cut­ting in from the right flank and drilling a shot past the keeper to put his side 5-0 up.

Star were dis­ap­pointed to con­cede soon af­ter, how­ever, when Cardross man­aged to bun­dle home a cor­ner to get on the score­sheet.

But this was as good as it got for the vis­i­tors as Star added fur­ther goals with Kieran Moore scor­ing an­other two to put him on four goals for the af­ter­noon and McPhie also adding to his tally, mak­ing it a good day for Red Star’s young strik­ers.

Aaron Moore also added to his tally to give Star a con­vinc­ing 9-1 win against the league new­com­ers.

The Lochgilp­head side will be ex­pect­ing a much tougher test to­mor­row when they take on a re­ju­ve­nated Busby AFC. The game is due to be played at the Rope­work and kicks off at 2pm.

In the draw for the West of Scot­land Cup first round, Red Star were handed a very dif­fi­cult home tie against Mary­hill This­tle with the match due to be played on Satur­day De­cem­ber 16.
