Old Boys domination of this season's Southland Football Premier Men's Donald Gray cup competition
continued with a 6-nil win over Thistle at the ILT Turf.
Their first half effort left spectators in bewilderment as they completely controlled the game but went to the break with just a 1-0 lead from a Callum Smith goal.
Whatever coach Ignacio Sande gave them as a half time pep talk worked a treat as they continued their domination but sealed it with a further five goals.
Callum Smith kept ahead of the competition goal scorers with another hat trick for the afternoon while David Mwangi, Atain Halley and Frank O'Boyle completed the six goal tally.
At Bain Park, Old Boy's chasers, Southend United and Queens Park fought out a torrid 2-2 draw which allowed Old Boys to take a clear lead on the points table.
Queens Park made an impressive start to the game and with a 2-0 half time lead from two goals by Matty Burgess looked to heading for a win.
However it took Southend United just three minutes into the second spell to cut the lead to 2-1 with a breakaway Steve MacDonald strike before levelling it 2-2 ten minutes later with a James McFelin penalty kick.
Try as they may neither side could break the deadlock despite Southend having a player red-cardedand being reduced
to 10 players late in the game.
