HARESTANES eased their way into the next round of the Scottish Amateur Cup with a comprehensive victory over their opponents from Motherwell.

Harestanes................ 7

Electric Bar.............. 1

It may sound silly, given the scoreline, but the oppositions best player was the goalkeeper.

He pulled off some great saves and could not be faulted for any of the goals. All credit to the opposition who made a game of it right to the end.

Electric Bar got off to a lively start, but with 10 minutes gone Harestanes began to take control.

In the 18th minute Coyne was through on the keeper, but he was out quickly to block any danger.

For all their dominance it took Harestanes till the 34th minute to take the lead. Welsh crossed from the left and P. Marshall sent a bullet header into the net.

Minutes later Cassidy sent Broadfoot through to collect his first. He rounded the keeper and slipped the ball in.

Broadfoot completed the first half by taking his tally to two. McClune fired over a good cross and the striker took it at waist-height to neatly side-foot in.

Harestanes kept their foot on the gas in the second half.

However, Electric Bar pulled one back early doors with a well-directed, low 30-yard free into the left corner.

Broadfoot then completed his hat-trick after a through-ball from McCafferty – slipping his shot under the keeper’s legs.

After that, Broadfoot and McCafferty again linked up to provide McClune with a tap-in.

McCafferty then supplied the ammunition for McClune to collect his second.

Finally, Tulloch set off on a mazy run down the right and sent over an accurate cross for Milne to place the ball out of the reach of the despairing keeper.

Harestanes Tote: no winner/s – £150 rollover.
