Su­per K fo­cus on get­ting back into winning form

Dumfries & Galloway Standard - - SPORT -


Kello Rovers will be hop­ing things can only get bet­ter in 2019 af­ter a 5-3 de­feat away to WhitlettsVic­to­ria.

Both teams had chances and it was the vis­i­tors who took the lead af­ter 31 min­utes when Ally Smith was brought down by Paul Mil­lar in the box. Ross Costello made no mis­take from the spot.

But two min­utes later, Vics were level. Isaac Kerr picked out Thomas Donovan and the lit­tle strik­ers deft vol­ley over the keeper gave Ryan Dun­smuir no chance.

On 41 min­utes Kello re­took the lead when Smith out­paced Ray­mond Buchanan down the left and his low cross across the face of goal was turned into his own net by Isaac Kerr.

But yet again the vis­i­tors couldn’t hold onto their lead and in the 44th minute Vics were back on level terms.

From Louis Kerr’s corner kick, the small­est player on the park, Donovan rose above ev­ery­one at the front post to head home the equaliser.

On the hour mark Whitletts went ahead when Adam Forsyth’s pass re­leased Donovan who scored his hat trick.

Eight min­utes later , Vics scored a fourth with Forsyth get­ting on the score­sheet.

Kello got a foothold in the game when Mitchell Ewing ri­fled the ball high past Fraser into the net from 25 yards.

But once again, within min­utes of scor­ing, Kello con­ceded and Paul Mil­lar rounded off the scor­ing.

There was still time for Kello de­fender Sean Ben­nie to re­ceive a sec­ond yel­low card to re­duce the vis­i­tors to 10 men.
