Hat-trick hero wins it for Arniston over league leaders

A stunning hat-trick by Arniston’s Kateleza secured a superb victory for Arniston over league leaders Fauldhouse on Saturday.

It was a feisty clash which twice saw Arniston take the lead only for United to hit back to level the match before Kateleza had the final say winning the match with his brilliant hat trick.

Kateleza scored the opener after only three minutes of at the start finishing off a brisk Arniston move to give the hosts a fine start.

Fauldhouse were second best in the first half as Arniston passed up two golden chances to extend their lead. First Kateleza hit his shot well wide on 20 minutes with only the keeper to beat, after being well set up by Moffat. On 37 minutes a Thomson free kick created an opportunity for Arniston’s Garden but he shot over the bar. At the half time interval Arnie were still in the ascendancy and went in with a 1-0 lead.
