Written by Sam Jenkinson
Aiden Ferris completed his second hat trick of the season as BSC Glasgow moved up to 40 points in the Lowland League and completed the double over Castle Douglas side Threave Rovers.
Arnault Bembo got a double and youngsters Tom Woods and Vincent Newlands completed the scoring as BSC hit their highest ever scoring in a game.
And they were rapidly two ahead. Within 90 seconds, Bembo opened the scoring. Callum Home found himself some space high up on the right, before dropping the ball back to Jamie Cunningham on the corner of the box. The midfielder swung a deep cross in, and found Bembo at the back post to fire into the top right corner.
And Newlands got his goal before five minutes had passed. With Threave holding a high line, Ferris had time to turn and play in the young winger, who confidently knocked the ball past Martin McAuley before finishing into the empty net.
The visitors came back into it, with Ben Irving getting his first to cut the deficit to one. BSC gave the ball away in their own half, before a through ball put the striker through to finish past Moore.
It was back up to two as Ferris got his first of the day during the very next BSC attack. Bembo turned provider as his cross found the striker six yards out to confidently fire into the net.
And it was four before the half hour mark, with a Home long ball forward finding Ferris on the inside right, before the striker fired well past McAuley to get his second.
Threave got their second right at the end of an action packed first half, with Alistair Barnes getting down the right well before finding their number 11 at the back post to slot home.
Bembo got his second assist shortly after the break when he received the ball from a Michael Tuohy throw in before turning and playing a great curling ball into Tom Woods’ feet, before the midfielder took a touch and knocked past McAuley.
And Irving made it 5-3 with 20 minutes remaining. A long ball through evaded the BSC defence and the striker, who had missed two chances in the previous five minutes, made no mistake this time as he finished well into the bottom left.
Ferris had his hat trick five minutes later. Bembo assisted again, getting down the right and cutting back to the striker, who spun and shot past the Threave goalkeeper straight into the bottom right.
And Bembo finished off the scoring, grabbing his second and BSC’s seventh, with five minutes to go. David Cameron, on as a substitute, won a header from a long Moore clearance, which played through Ferris. McAuley sprinted out to clear, but only got it as far as Bembo who, from distance, finished into the open goal to complete the scoring.
The result leaves BSC in eighth place, level on points with Whitehill Welfare, who hold a game in hand, and two behind Edinburgh University. Victory in Mark Adams’ side’s final game of the season, coming up this midweek against Stirling University, could see them finish as high as sixth, depending on other results. BSC defeated the students 3-0 at Forthbank last time the two sides met in March.
