IT was top versus bottom on Saturday when Kingdom Homes Carnegie went to Dundee’s DISC stadium to take on Harris.

First in National 2, KHC faced the side at the foot of the table but there was no complacency in the Fife ranks and they won convincingly.

That sets up an exciting prospect this weekend when they play closest challengers Gordonians at Woodmill, who have also won all their games.

The approach was spot on against Harris and it was evident from the start that a number of late call offs led to a weaker than expected home team lining up.

The game was dominated from the start by Carnegie and within five minutes Andy Doyle scored a well placed drag flick to put the Fifers ahead.

Steven Glass scored a piledriver from the top of the ‘D’ a few minutes later then provided an assist to skipper Martin Daw who swept home from the penalty spot. Youngster Isaac Fraser-West scored the fourth with a thunderbolt of a shot and provided a comfortable 4-0 lead at half-time. The second-half saw sustained pressure from KHC that led to braces for Daw, Doyle and Fraser-West.

A consolation goal in the last minute saw the final score of 7-1 to Carnegie.

It meant five wins out of five for the Reds and skipper Daw said: “This has been the perfect start for us ahead of crucial league games coming up and on Saturday we host Gordonians before travelling to the other leading side, Watsonians, the week after. These games are critical if we are to achieve a promotion spot.

“Sandwiched in between is the second round of the Scottish Cup where we travel to top National 1 side Kelburne, on Sunday, so it is a tough run but one everyone is looking forward to.”

The Carnegie players are hoping for a bigger home support this Saturday for the Gordonians game which has a 1.30pm push back at Woodmill.

KINGDOM Homes Carnegie Ladies 1s were at home to Borders 2s in East League 1 on Saturday and won three valuable points.

Dunfermline were hoping to keep up their winning run but were not sure what to expect from the Borders team.

The first-half was end-to-end with the home side enjoying more scoring chances but unable to put the ball in the net.

The game became very competitive, resulting in a number of cards for both teams but there were no goals at the break.

The second-half saw Dunfermline pass the ball about well and, from a Borders hit out, Dunfermline cut out the pass and drove into the circle.

Laura Donaldson followed up a rebound to beat the ‘keeper. The second goal came when Mercedes Black cut out a pass and drove into the circle to score.

Borders attacked strongly towards the end but it finished 2-0. MVP was Mercedes Black.
