Eastvale won their first league game of the season as a hat-trick from Sean Macbride and a goal from Andrew Cappleman consigned Kinross to defeat.
It was an even opening between two sides searching for their first league victory of the league campaign and it was the hosts that had the opening opportunity. A long ball over the top produced a fine stop from Lewis Caulfield in the visiting goal.
Kinross had an attempt themselves minutes later but Liam Murray's free kick was plucked out the air by Connor Wilson.
Two minutes later, Eastvale took the lead. Macbride was played through and he lifted the ball over the onrushing keeper.
The visitors woke up after this and a Sean Cowe header went just wide from an Allen Saunders cross on 17 minutes before good build up play in the middle of the park set up Murray, but he dragged the shot wide.
These missed chances for Kinross were punished on 31 minutes when Macbride was played through and he made no mistake in volleying the ball past the keeper to double the lead.
Macbride searched for his hat-trick and Eastvale’s third, and was so close to getting it on the 35th minute, but Caulfield got across the goal to deny him.
Kinross tried to comeback in the second half but were almost architects of their own downfall when straight from kick off a loose pass allowed Eastvale in, but Caulfield gathered the loose ball before a player in Eastvale black could reach it.
The game was end-to-end as the hosts looked to finish the match off while Kinross were determined to find a way back into the game. Murray sent a free kick over the bar before an Eastvale break away came to nothing.
Macbride was still looking to complete his hat-trick but again was thwarted by Caulfield in the Kinross goal.
The Colts were still up for the fight and Cowe almost capitalised from a lapse of concentration by the Eastvale defence but Scott Easton got back just in time to deny the winger.
It was the hosts turn to pile pressure on the opposing goal but after a neat one-two Alan Seath couldn’t get his shot on target.
The game was finally put to bed by the home side on the 71st minute when Jamie Patterson weaved in and out the Kinross defence before laying the ball off to Macbride for him to tap in and complete his hat-trick.
Two minutes later Eastvale made it four as Cappleman volleyed in from the edge of the box to seal the three points for the home side while Kinross will be disappointed not to have at least been on the scoresheet in an absorbing league encounter.

Sean Macbride – Excellent hat-trick and would have got more if it wasn’t for the Kinross keeper.
Lewis Caulfield – First game in goal and was superb, not much he could have done for the goals.

The fourth goal, an excellent volley by Andrew Cappleman.
The spell between the first and second Eastvale goals as Kinross looked promising.
