Kirkliston South Queensferry hosted Forth Athletic, in a terribly windy South Queensferry this weekend. 
The first half began with Kirkliston South Queensferry choosing to shoot into the wind, this resulted in Forth holding them in their own half and pressing forward.
Forth applied pressure with the wind to their advantage, and a loose ball fell to one of their players, calling Cameron Quate in goal into action as he came out to clear the ball, taking out the Forth player in the process and the referee pointed to the spot. The peanlty kick was tucked away to make it 1-0 to Forth.
Forth doubled their lead after the ball blew to one of their players, who spotted the goalkeeper off his line and shot with the ball sailing into the net, to put Forth further ahead. 
Kirkliston South Queensferry's coaches urged their players to get the ball out wide and to use the wingers. They did this and listening paid off, as a cross from the wing found Jack Hannon who hit the ball past the Forth keeper to make the score 2-1 going into half time.
Half Time: Kirkliston South Queensferry 1-2 Forth Athletic 
It was now Kirkliston South Queensferry's turn to use the wind to their advantage. 
The score line was to be even after Andrew Bradford made a great run, with two defenders bearing down on him, but he kept his nerve to finish giving the Forth keeper no chance and to make the scoreline 2-2.
After getting this goal, Kirkliston South Queensferry pressed hard for the winner and with ten minutes to go a throw in was flicked on, which landed at Jake Hannon' feet and he kept his cool, slotting the ball home to make the scoreline 3-2 in favour of Kirkliston South Queensferry.
Unfortuantely for Forth, they were to have no reply and the Kirkliston South Queensferry dismissed any attemmpts of a comeback from the Forth side.
