The corner came in and Lambert Kateleza saw his shot blocked and cleared . Four minutes later Scott Irving put a great ball into the box but it was just inches to much in front of his attackers and the ball drifted out for a bye kick . On thirteen minutes Kateleza was through on goal but shot over from 25 yards out . Conor Wallace made a good save at the expense of a corner when Kyle Sampson broke into the box and shot . The opening goal came after 20 minutes when a corner into the back area of the box found LUMBERT KATELEZA who’ shot through a crowded box into the net . Conor Kelly turned and shot on 26 minutes but was well wide right of the target . The home side doubled their lead on 29 minutes when a free kick to the back post was met by Callum Connolly who rolled it back along the goal line for LAMBERT KATELEZA to have the easiest of chance’s to roll the ball into the empty net . Just after the half hour mark Conor Kelly stung the fingers of the keeper who gathered his shot at the second attempt . Ross Nimmo had a shot wide left after a penetrating run down the right into the box .
