Glenburn Miners Welfare 3 Largs Thistle 5
The Thistle kids took their win streak into double figures with a come from behind victory against Glenburn Miners Welfare in Ayr.
Playing their third game in five days, Largs got off to a sluggish start and due to an indecisive piece of defending and a long distance strike, found themselves two down inside 15 minutes.
Thistle pulled one back half way through the half when Jamie Mills played a one two with Lee McShane before releasing David Griffins in on goal. Griffins held off his defender and calmly slotted the ball home.
Largs stepped up the tempo at the start of the second half and were level within a minute of the restart.
Reece Allen was bundled over in the penalty area and Cammy Florence made no mistake with the spot kick.
Thistle were becoming increasingly dominant and deservedly took the lead ten minutes into the half. After Glenburn failed to clear a Mills corner, Iain Bell won the second ball on the edge of the box and rifled a shot into the top corner, leaving the goalkeeper static.
Glenburn levelled the game despite offside calls as a Glenburn player who advanced forward and finished past keeper Cammy McDermid.
As the hosts began to tire, Thistle stepped up the intensity and once more took the lead when, with ten minutes left, an in swinging free kick from Mills was headed home from eight yards by Florence to claim his second of the game.
With time running out, Allen finished the scoring, when after good work by Benjamin Riley on the right side of the park, Allen latched onto a back heel from Robert Jack, to thunder home Thistle's fifth from just inside the area.
