KELLY THE HERO AS COMRADES HIT FOUR

Clifford Adams' side moved in front just after the half-hour mark when Stewart Nixon scrambed the ball over the line after Thomas Robinson's corner came back off the base of the post.

Mark Kelly added a second on 50 minutes after beating his marker and slotting the ball beyond the advancing Shane McPartland.

Then, just after the hour, Kelly made it 3-0 with a header from Nixon's cross, although McPartland did get his hands to it.

The scoring was completed nine minutes from the end following a crisp move which ended with substitute Zach Barr drilling the ball low inside the post from nine yards.
