SAFL Pre­mier 2 Lochgilp­head Red Star 10 Busby AFC 0

Red Star took ev­ery op­por­tu­nity against an in­jury-hit Busby AFC, scor­ing 10 goals and se­cur­ing their place at the top of the ta­ble.

Star looked to put the vis­i­tors un­der pres­sure, shoot­ing up­hill in the first half and found them­selves a goal to the good early on when Kieran Moore beat the off­side trap be­fore fir­ing home across the keeper from close range.

Star added to their lead with 12 min­utes gone when this time Kieran Moore elected to cut the ball across to Ciaran McPhie who tapped home from close range for 2-0.

It wasn’t long be­fore Lee Ma­cLean opened his ac­count for the sea­son when a driv­ing run from mid­field saw him pass two de­fend­ers be­fore beat­ing the keeper with a classy fin­ish.

Aaron Moore was next to find the tar­get when his pow­er­ful shot from the edge of the box beat the Busby keeper to put Star 4-0 up.

Just be­fore the break Red Star were 5-0 up when Kieran Moore added to his tally with a well-struck free kick to put the home side in cruise con­trol at the break.

The Lochgilp­head side added goals through Kieran Moore and Rab Docherty early in the sec­ond half be­fore Ciaran McPhie added another ex­cel­lent strike to have Red Star 8-0 up be­fore the hour mark.

The Star man­age­ment team were able to re­fresh their side with all five sub­sti­tutes get­ting a good run out. The home side added a cou­ple of late goals through Kevin Keen to take their tally to 10 for the af­ter­noon and 24 goals in their open­ing three league matches.

To­mor­row (Satur­day Septem­ber 2), Red Star look to keep their good run of form go­ing when they take on East End United in Greenock.
