Rutherglen Reformer - - Reader Travel -

East­field Star cruised to a 6-0 win over Glas­gow Rovers to gain the brag­ging rights in a one-sided derby.

They started brightly and took the lead through a great free kick that was swung deep into the box by Steven Coul­ter. Shaun Fi­nan rose well to beat the ‘keeper but not the post and East­field’s top scorer Karl Dun­can was on hand to stroke it home from two yards.

The game con­tin­ued and East­field pressed on but were rarely tested ex­cept from Rovers’ long throws into the penalty area. Wil­liam Gib­son was on hand for the Star who dealt with them with rel­a­tive ease.

East­field grabbed a sec­ond through Dun­can once more and Scott Hendry added the third be­fore half-time.

Mark McHugh fin­ished well into the top cor­ner be­fore Dun­can bagged his hat-trick in the sec­ond half.

East­field’s new­est re­cruit James Gait­ens struck a lovely vol­ley from 15 yards into the cor­ner to com­plete the scor­ing.

Mean­while, in the other matches around the Sun­day AFL, two goals each from Flem­ing and Skiv­ing­ton helped Ruther­glen Rovers to a 7-0 ham­mer­ing of Rose­hill Thorns.

Han­nah, MacDon­ald and Gal­lagher com­pleted the rout to move the Rovers into third spot - three points be­hind the lead­ers.
