Cowden hit four past Dumbarton

A BRACE of goals in each half gave a well-organised, resourceful Cowdenbeath side a comfortable 4-0 victory against Dumbarton at the Rock this afternoon.

The visitors were on the score sheet within eight minutes, as Marc McKenzie took advantage of a clever through-ball cutting across a square defence. Then Jon Robertson made it two after a scramble in the box on 19 minutes.

At several stages in the game Sons achieved a good deal of possession, but could not break down Cowdenbeath's solidly deployed back line and creative midfield.

Dumbarton came out firing in the second half, but the pattern of Cowden dominance repeated itself with Dominic Kennedy deflecting in Jordan Morton's effort under pressure on 68 minutes, and then the Blue Brazil's Scott Linton making it four with a swift breakaway goal on 86 minutes.

Sons now lie one place off the foot of the second division table. Next up is an away trip to Forfar Athletic on Saturday 24 September, as they try to re-ignite their league campaign. (17 Sept 2011).
