Whitburn go third after demolition of Pumpherston

Whitburn leapfrogged idle Armadale to go third in the league and still well in contention to secure a promotion spot with a clinical 6-0 dismantling of visitors Pumpherston. Quick out of the blocks, Whitburn took the lead within the first minute when Jack Henderson was sent down the right wing by a great Martin Russell pass and he cut in before hitting a shot that came off the post and was turned in by Darren Liddell. The game then drifted for a good half hour with neither team able to exert much control on the game though Pumpherston had a couple of good shots from Keir Lapsley and Jordan Rodger both of which were well saved by a confident Daniel Potts. Liddell doubled the lead in the 36th minute when he converted a great Andy Thomson right wing cross from 5 yards out. The second half started in similar fashion to the first with another early goal from Liddell, this time a great shot from the edge of the box which found the bottom corner. It was 4 13 minutes later when a Louis Maguire pass wide set up Thomson whose shot was parried by keeper Jamie Bowman to Stuart McIntyre and his shot hit the back of the net. In contrast to the first half the second was almost total domination by Whitburn and Liddell should have had his fourth in the 68th minute when Thomson unselfishly set him up but somehow he must have taken his eye off the ball as he allowed it to go wide of the goal and the chance was lost. Louis Maguire tried his luck with a shot from outside the box in the 80th minute which Bowman got down well to save. Sub Aiden Martin would again prove to be a supersub as he converted a shot from McIntyre that was going wide at the back post. Another sub Dylan Weldon made it six with 3 minutes to go when he pounced on a rebound off the keeper from a long range Martin shot to turn the ball into an unguarded net.
