Rangers 4 Dunfermline Athletic 0
This weekend gave me a chance to take in one of the younger team’s games when I took in the Under 14’s game at Murray Park on Sunday afternoon. It took Ally Dawson’s side only six minutes to open the scoring when John Cunningham held of a couple of challenges before shooting past the keeper.
Five minutes later Rangers doubled their lead, Greig Taylor played the ball forward to Cunningham at the edge of the box and the striker held off a challenge before playing the ball across the box to Cameron Price who found the net via the keeper’s left hand post.
With these games being played over three thirty minute periods Dunfermline had a great chance six minutes before the end of the first period, their striker went past keeper Robbie McCrorie but from a tight angle his effort went across goal and wide.
Five minutes into the second period there was a chance at each end in quick succession, first an effort from the visitors when narrowly over the at the other end Cunningham shot across goal after breaking into the left hand side of the box. Five minutes later the Pars keeper did well to touch a Price effort from the edge of the box on to the crossbar.
Rangers continued to press and the keeper was again in action when he saved a Scott Moore effort at his near post after the Rangers wide man cut in from the left. A minute before the end of the second period Rangers grabbed a third, a good passing move eventually saw the ball arrive at Gary McGreish on the right who hit the byline, his cutback found Cunningham who laid the ball back into the path of Cameron Price who found the net from around the penalty spot.
Rangers fourth goal came just under ten minutes into the final period when Ross McCrorie headed home from a Ross Lyons corner from the right. The final effort of note saw Moore cut in from the left and the Dunfermline keeper saved low at his near post.
