After 12 hours rain prior to kick off the pitch at Windygates was good to soft as they say. Kevin Paterson returned in goal, Michael Geissler stepped into defence and the rest of the team were along usual lines. Unknown territory for both teams as they strive to reach the Fife Cup semi final for the first time.
Greig Park were the first to create a scoring chance with Fraser going close. Fossoway must have felt a bit overwhelmed as GPR laid siege to the visitors goal. It was no surprise when they took the lead, a run by Wayne Davidson when he avoided a few tackles and then he found the corner of the net with a neat finish. Greig Park were 2 up in 18 mins with Davidson involved again. A mistake in the Fossoway defence allowed him to rob the ball and square it to Ramsay who slotted it home. Goal no.3 arrived in the 23rd minute, great interplay between Hart and Field allowed the latter to hit a rasping shot that the visiting goalie could not hold and Ramsay was on hand to score the rebound. The game was over as a contest 3 mins before half time. Liam Hart latched on to a through ball and sped away from the Fossoway defence, their goalie came out but the GPR man simply waltzed round him and scored into the empty net. 4-0 GPR.
The second half was a breeze for Greig Park as they took their foot off the peddle and although they gave Fossoway more possession they never allowed them back into the match. A good afternoons work and a stroll into the semi final for Greig Park, where I’m sure they will meet tougher opposition. The semi finals are due on the 18th and 25th of April with a 18.30 kick off. Both matches will be played at Warout Stadium, Glenrothes.
