Venue: New Central Park, Kelty

Despite opening the scoring the Cowden under 20 side went down to another heavy defeat at New Central Park on Wednesday night.

With only two minutes gone a mix up in the visiting defence saw the ball fall to Jack WHITAKER and with keeper Brian, off his line expecting a pass back, he chipped the ball over the keeper from 25 yards.

Soon after, we almost doubled our advantage when a low 25 yard drive from Muirhead crashed off the post.

Rovers however drew level with 19 minutes gone when Osei sent the ball into the path of Kyle BELL who hit a low shot into the far corner from the edge of the box.

Osei was once again the provider for Rovers second goal laying the ball on for Jonny COURT to fire home from six yards after 28 minutes.

Seven minutes from the break David McKAY fired home a 25 yard dive and two minutes into the second half COURT got on the end of a Berry cross to head home from close range.

With 52 minutes gone Rovers went further ahead when Valentine went on a run and sent the ball over for Ryan STEVENSON to shoot home.

Three goals in the closing 14 minutes then made the Kirkcaldy sides win more emphatic with STEVENSON firing home from inside the box after being set up by Osei.

Kieran DALL then hit a brace firstly he shot home from inside the box with ten minutes to go then three minutes later he chipped Penman from the corner of the box.

We had then had a late chance of pulling a goal back after Connelly went on a run from the halfway line but his 25 yard shot was turned over the bar by keeper Pedden.
