Eight is great for EKYM

East Kilbride News - - SPORT -

Con­nor McCann, Cammy McCul­loch and Ross McDon­agh all bagged a brace as East Kil­bride YM hit Rosyth for eight in the Scot­tish Am­a­teur Cup.

Rosyth sat sec­ond in the King­dom of Fife Cale­do­nian league but could not match YM as Graeme Robert­son’s side turned in an­other im­pres­sive dis­play to cruise into round three.

Jor­dan Calder started the rout by head­ing home from Jor­dan Fletcher’s in-swing­ing cor­ner kick to the back post early in the match.

An­thony Pen­man was in­stru­men­tal in YM’s sec­ond goal, win­ning the ball in mid­field be­fore putting McCul­loch in pos­ses­sion. McCul­loch then re­leased McCann and he fin­ished from 18 yards.

McCann was then scythed down for a penalty kick, from which Ryan Kelly scored to put YM 3-0 up, and be­fore half time McCann scored his sec­ond of the day and YM’s fourth.

Early in the sec­ond half, McDon­agh added goal num­ber five, shrug­ging off chal­lenges and stay­ing on his feet to drive the ball past the dis­con­so­late keeper.

McDon­agh and McCul­loch co­or­di­nated YM’s last three goals with McDon­agh putting McCul­loch through twice to score be­fore McCul­loch re­turned the com­pli­ment, al­low­ing McDon­agh to notch the fi­nal goal.

This Satur­day YM play a vi­tal league match away to ti­tle ri­vals St. Mungo at 2pm in Bish­op­briggs. This is fol­lowed by an­other de­mand­ing fix­ture the fol­low­ing week away to Premier Di­vi­sion side Giffnock North in round three of the West of Scot­land Cup.

Mean­while, YM’s GGPL side lost 5-2 at Wester­lands with Mur­ray McClure and Matt Hag­gerty scor­ing.

They now face East­wood Park Mount at home on Satur­day.
