Rutherglen Reformer - - Sports -

Cam­bus­lang’s New­ton Aca­dem­i­cal cap­i­talised on their chance to go top of the league with a 5-2 win over East Kil­bride YM.

Af­ter their dis­ap­point­ing per­for­mance against Dum­bar­ton Harp Celtic in their last match, Ac­cies wanted to get back to win­ning ways af­ter fel­low ti­tle ri­vals Spring­burn drew with Ea­gle­sham.

The open­ing goal came from Kieran Zeb’s flick-on which found its way into the path of Martin Jones who coolly fin­ished past the goal­keeper.

Zeb was caus­ing the EKYM de­fence plenty of prob­lems and when he was brought down just out­side the box, he was then able to curl home the free kick and give his side a two-goal cush­ion.

He scored again be­fore half-time when he found a yard of space inside the area to get his shot away and make the game 3-0.

A lapse in con­cen­tra­tion saw EKYM score just be­fore the break when a throw-in was taken quickly and their striker was able to head home from a deep cross.

Af­ter the in­ter­val New­ton were able to han­dle some East Kil­bride pres­sure and then, with a quick counter at­tack, Martin Jones was able to find the bot­tom cor­ner with a nice fin­ish.

East Kil­bride scored again be­fore Nad Zeb was brought down inside the box and top goal scorer Kevin McFar­lane slot­ted the ball home to make it 5-2.

New­ton’s Craig Fel­lows saw red for two bad fouls af­ter com­ing off the bench.
