Whitburn win 7 goal Scottish thriller at Camelon

Whitburn were not expected by many to progress into the second round of the Scottish at the expense of Super League Camelon and yet they did with a superb second half comeback. The first half had many thinking that defeat was inevitable as all Whitburn coulod muster was a Jack Hamilton free kick on target that was easily saved and the home defence looked well able to resist Whitburn. Meanwhile Camelon had established a two goal lead through goals from Scott Taylor and Alan Docherty - the first a nice curling shot from the edge of the box and the second aided by an unfortunate slip by Michael Fairbanks as he rushed to grab the ball. Within a minute of the second half Jack Hamilton had scored with a pinpoint free kick to narrow the lead. Gordon Herd, however, restored the two goal lead just a minute later and a lot of visiting supporters began to fear the worst. They needn't have worried because from that point on it was all Whitburn as they added 3 more goals and it was their (depleted due to absences and injury) defence that became inpenetrable to the Camelon attackers. The second goal was a simple tap in of a low near post corner by Jordan Bain. Then on the hour Gary Brass headed on a Hamilton free kick to Callum Robertson and he slammed the ball into the home net. The winner came with 20 minutes to go when Hamilton again found the net with a great free kick which left the home keeper bamboozled. One would have thought that the Whitburn goal would now be deluged by attacks but the onslaught never happened as the defence played as well as they have all season and Fairbanks dealt easily with the only effort that came his way right at the end of the game. Hopefully Whitburn can build on this and make a push in the league. Match report.
