Kirkcaldy got their first win of their league season when they were victorious against Kinross Colts. A hat-trick from Kieran Grieve as well as goals from Kirk Thompson and Jamie Spears meant that the three points went home with the visitors.
An even opening to proceedings as both teams matched each other but the visitors created the first chance. Grieve got the better of Lewis Bathgate in the Kinross goal but with the goal gaping, he was only able to put the ball into the side netting from an acute angle. Kinross responded immediately but the offside flag denied the hosts a run at goal. Kirkcaldy broke the deadlock on ten minutes when Thompson shrugged off Calum McIntyre to give him space to lay the ball on a plate for Grieve to tap in.
Kinross tried to respond quickly through Liam Murray but his free kick was gathered at the second attempt by the goalkeeper before Gregor Brown in the Kirkcaldy goal was called upon again six minutes later as Paul McLintock from point blank range. The hosts were punished for passing these opportunities up as Thompson linked up well with Colin Drysdale before firing past the onrushing keeper.
Again the hosts tried to respond but just as before, the Kirkcaldy defence stayed strong. Kirkcaldy then went close to a third five minutes before the break as Thompson found space in the Kinross defence to get a strike at goal but he put it just wide. The visitors were almost made to regret that missed chance when good keeping again denied McLintock as the ball was pinched off his toe.
