SAUCHIE produced an incredible second half comeback to trump Inverkeithing in a nine-goal thriller over the weekend.

Despite trailing by two goals at the half-time mark, Sauchie bounced back to pull off a last gasp winner and trounce the hosts 5-4.

In the Reds first game since being confirmed to finish second, there was a fair bit of rotation within the squad as the season draws to a close.

Inverkeithing took an early lead but Sauchie quickly found themselves an equaliser through Jack Docherty to even things out.

A couple mistakes at the back proved costly and saw Inverkeithing go 4-1 up with just a few minutes left of the half. Sauchie were gifted a chance back into the game when Brian Morgan was brought down in the box.

Danny Smith converts from the spot and the Reds enter the break with a two-goal deficit.

Ross Kavanagh was brought on at half time to shake things up and Sauchie come out the break a different animal, quickly earning a goal back through Sam Davidson.

As the second half drew to a close, Sauchie found an equaliser from Lucas Williamson, with it all but guaranteed the points would be shared.

However, the last chance of the match fell to Kris Kelly who fired home Sauchie’s fifth goal to earn all three points for Sauchie.

Assistant manager Darren Cummings was delighted with the result and said: “It was important to give some boys a run-out since we’ve ensured second. Inverkeithing caught us off guard a few times.

“We made a few changes going into the second half, brought Ross Kav on and a couple others.

“In the second half, we were unbelievable. It was a great comeback. The boys showed great character from the boys overall, we were delighted for them.”

Sauchie host Dundonald Bluebell this Saturday for the last game of the season, before looking forward to a cup final against the University of Stirling.
