Whitburn storm past Lochore in the league

With a storm on the way and the game played in a fairly stiff breeze, Whitburn blitzed Lochore in the second half to win 5-1 and avenge the away 4-4 draw earlier in the year. The game was pretty even in the first half with very few chances though Whitburn looked the far superior team with their passing game working well until the final third. The opening goal came in the 20th minute when a Darren Tomaszewski shot from wide right came off the back post and landed at Andy Mochan's feet and his slightly mis-hit effort found the back of the net from 5 yards out. Iain Griffin had a near post header go over a quarter of an hour later and Whitburn went in 1 up at half time. The second half was an altogether more entertaining affair as 5 more goals were added - 4 to the home side. The first came in the 54th minute when a Mochan cross was flicked by Griffin to Darren Liddell who passed to Tomaszewski whose wide left shot this time hit the back of the net. This seemed to wake Lochore up as two trialist subs had decent long range shots well saved by Robbie Taylor around the hour mark. Also around this time Reece Duncan and former Whitburn player Jordan Bain, acting as a trialist, came on and both made impacts on the game. The former had two good shots well saved around 70 minutes, the second going for a corner. From the corner Reece Boyle headed powerfully from 8 yards and Reece Duncan appeared to get a touch which deflected it wide of the keeper and in (awaiting confirmation from the ref's report) A great passing move with 12 minutes to go ended in Bain unselfishly putting in Mochan and he again scored with a low shot. Just 2 minutes later another trialist for Lochore kept his composure when one on one with Taylor and calmly slotted the ball home to give his side a consolation. With 7 minutes to go Bain robbed a defender outside the box and drove in on goal, also calmly slotting the ball past the advancing keeper to restore the four goal lead.
