Rangers 6 Hibernian 0
With this week’s 19’s game clashing with the first team fixture I got my fix of youth football by watching the under 14’s comfortable win over Hibernian at Murray Park on Sunday afternoon. Rangers took an early lead when Greig Taylor won the ball in midfield and sent John Cunningham through to carry on into the box before shooting past the keeper.
Only a further three minutes had passed before Rangers doubled their lead, Cameron Price sent the overlapping Lewis White clear on the left, John Cunningham got his head to the full-back’s cross and it broke for Gary McGreish to fire into the net. Ross Lyon then fed McGreish on the right and he went past two defenders before hitting the byline, his ball into the box was laid back to Ross Lyon by Cunningham but the midfielder’s shot was just too high.
Ross Lyon’s then had another chance and again McGreish’s run to the byline created the opportunity, Lyon’s shooting just wide from the winger’s cutback. Josh Jeffries then cut across the box before playing wide to McGreish and the winger’s cross was touched on to the bar by the Hibs keeper.
Rangers scored a third six minutes into the second period, the unmarked John Cunningham headed Grieg Taylor’s corner from the right past the keeper. Cunningham came close to a third goal when he headed Lewis White’s cross from the left just wide. The fourth goal was not delayed too long, Ross McCrorie played the ball forward to Gary McGreish who cut inside past a defender before sending a shot crashing off the underside of the bar with John Cunningham on hand to nod past the stranded keeper.
Rangers fifth goal was a solo effort from Ross Lyon, winning the ball in midfield he strode past a couple of defenders before finding the net from the edge of the box. The scoring was complete with the best move of the match, a good passing move was concluded when Max Ashmore and Ross Lyon combined to send John Cunningham through to find the net.
