The Brook Street goal-machine rolled into Stirlingshire this afternoon and left with another three points and five goals to the good. The win kept the pressure firmly on Accretia, but at the other end of the league, it also consigned RTS to Division V.

Athletic opened the scoring in the eighth minute from the penalty spot in controversial circumstances after Onésimo Murube went down in the box.

The decision looked particularly soft, but Paul O’Healihy was not distracted by the home players’ protests, and coolly slotted the ball home.

Nine minutes later and Paul got his second of the game when some superb play by Yann Schories played him through to knock the ball under the advancing home keeper.

Athletic had their tails up, and with twenty-four minutes on the clock made it 3-0 when Andy Hautala pounced on a mistake on the right to drive the ball home.

Athletic benefited from another mistake eleven minutes later, this time allowing Onésimo Murube in to round the keeper and knocking the ball into the empty net.

Sven Salz had the chance to reduce the deficit in the thirty-eighth minutebut fired wide. However, within sixty seconds, the home side had achieved just that; Young-Kwang Um swiftly ran past José Eransus to put the goal away.

Athletic almost went 5-1 up when Andy Hautala fired a shot in a minute later, however Marek Sidorek in the home goal got a fingertip it to turn it away for a corner.

Nine minutes after the break, and it was 5-1 as captain Kyle Fair finished off a superb move which sliced through the centre of the home defence.

RTS almost pulled another goal back in seventy-six minutes, but Ville Yrjölä who was rooted to his line, was saved when the shot bounced back off the post.

A goal-line clearance with ten minutes left prevented Eldvinas Šumlinskas’ curling shot from entering the net, but three minutes later Onésimo Murube took advantage of indecision between the home keeper and his centre-backs to make the score 6-1.

Arjen was slightly disappointed at full time when it became clear Accretia had won there match 2-0, having been drawing 0-0 at half-time, however he said, “We are hot on their heels and all the pressure is on them”.

He continued however, “When all is said and done, we must remember that today RTS have been relegated. I would like to take this opportunity to wish them the best of luck for next season”

“There’s only two games left and it’s almost certain the title race will go right down to the wire. We have momentum though, and the potential to see the job through”.
