Lewis United continued their one hundred per cent winning record in the league this season, this time at the expense of Deveronvale. The hosts triumphed 5-1 thanks to goals from Bradley Wilson, Jack Cowie, Caie McDonald, Blair McGinigal and Matthew McLaren. Deveronvale pulled a goal back late on through Jodie Strachan.
The game was a chess match for the opening 10 minutes, with very little to split the two teams. Early on it looked like this game was set for a tight, low scoring affair.
The best chance of the opening proceedings fell to Lewis United’s Bradley Wilson. The ball fell to the striker eight yards from goal but he blasted his half-volley over the bar.
Both teams were making an effort to play the ball out from the back. The full backs of both sides were pulling wide on every goal kick to give their goalkeeper an option other than kicking long.
The tight match was opened up on 25 minutes thanks to a piece of quality from Jack Cowie. His glorious cross from the right eliminated the Deveronvale defence and left Wilson with the simple task of nodding in from a few yards.
Cowie was at it again when he scored himself to make it 2-0 after 29 minutes. His shot from 25 yards beat goalkeeper Logan Golias with the help of a deflection.
Lewis were buoyant at this point and weren’t afraid to shoot when they got the chance. Right back Caie McDonald strode forward and his cross/shot from 25 yards flew into the top corner giving Golias no chance.
A seemingly tight game had been eradicated by three quality goals.
