EK stun Burgh in cup tie

East Kilbride News - - SPORT -

EK This­tle Ama­teurs marched into round three of the Scot­tish Am­a­teur Cup after a shock thrash­ing of Greater Glas­gow League side He­lens­burgh.

Quick-fire goals from Gary Noble and Peter Carr, with the later tak­ing it around two play­ers to slot past the keeper, got This­tle off to a per­fect start.

How­ever, just be­fore half time a Jor­dan Brown own goal let He­lens­burgh back into the tie.

Steven Oates re­stored EK’s two-goal ad­van­tage early in the sec­ond half when he wrig­gled through the de­fence and fired the ball into the top cor­ner. And that opened the flood­gates. Jor­dan Con­ner scored This­tle’s fourth from a great as­sist from keeper Christo­pher Treacy, run­ning onto his punt to lob the Burgh keeper.

Noble struck in the box for 5-1 and Jack Irvine wrapped up the scor­ing with a stun­ning vol­ley to com­plete the rout.

Jags are now un­de­feated in their last three games go­ing into this week­end’s Strath­clyde Satur­day Morn­ing League fix­ture against Shaw­bridge.
