PUPILS youth played a league and cup double header with three points up for grabs in both competitions.

This was due to the group format of the league cup this season and it was the home team who ran out comfortable winners.

Although it was the away team who started the brightest and controlled the possession for the first 25 minutes, they never really threatened to score from the corners and free kicks despite the wind advantage in the first half.

Against the run of play the home side won a free kick 30 yards from goal and MacBrayne fired it home over the keeper against the strong wind.

Buoyed by this the Pupils began to dominate play and within three minutes it was 2-0 when Colville robbed the fullback and took a touch before smashing a low shot in off the far post from the edge of the box.

Two minutes before half time Souden won the ball in his own half and beat three men before playing the ball to Macindeor. He controlled it and played it brilliantly into Souden’s path, who had continued his run.

The defender ran clean through to slot it past the keeper to give the home team a three- goal lead at halftime.

With the wind behind them the Pupils started slowly again and it took until the 55th minute before the next goal came when McGrory got the ball and beat four men to shoot home from almost the byeline.
The Pupils were well on top and it did not take long for the next goal when the ball fell kindly in the box for McGrory who took a touch before scoring his second.

With a few injuries and all five subs on, the home team continued to look like scoring every time they went up the park, and the sixth goal came when McCallum crossed from the left and Brown controlled before shooting past the keeper despite the defenders close attention.

With three minutes left Lamont tackled the fullback in his own area. He hit a great shot over the keeper from the corner of the box to complete the scoring.

With eight league games still to play and at least three cup games, the Pupils Youth have a long few weeks ahead but still sit top of the league having won 12 of 12.

Tomorrow they travel to Oban for an Argyll derby.
