Rabs made only one change for the visit of Glenafton Athletic, Willie Easton making the starting line-up.
It was Rabs who were quickest out of the traps and were one up after only 90 seconds when Robertson's lengthy clearance bounced over the heads of a couple of defenders giving Iain Diack the chance to lob the ball over the advancing Semple and into the back of the net. Rabs doubled their lead in the 5th minute when Adam sent over a cross from the left wing it was met at the near post by Steven Meechan who gave Semple no chance from close in. In the 8th minute only a well-timed tackle by McKillen prevented Diack from adding to Rabs tally.
Late-comers still to arrive at the ground missed Rabs third, when Willie Easton hammered home a super volley from the edge of the box in the 9th minute before Scott Adam made it four with a strong finish three minutes later. Iain Diack scored number five on the 15th minute with a clever chip over Semple. A minute later Semple made a fantastic save from Meechan to prevent the sixth.
Armstrong came close for Athletic with a diving header in the 20th minute, his side did pull a goal back four minutes later when Danny Mitchell met a partial clearance at the edge of the penalty box and with the aid of a wicked deflection sent the ball past Robertson. The Ayrshire side doubled their total in 33rd minute when Rabs defence failed to clear giving John Dempster the chance to force the ball over the line.
Glenafton were reduced to 10 men when Mitchell was shown a second yellow card for a foul on Adam. Iain Diack completed his hat-trick and his side's 6th before half-time when he crashed a 35 yard curling shot passed Semple
Half-Time ;- Rob Roy 6 v Glenafton Athletic 2.
The second half began evenly with McChesney and McManus just off target with decent efforts. Rabs made their first substitution in the 58th minute replacing the hard working Easton with Frye.
Rabs still looked capable of scoring with Bradley heading a Diack cross over the bar and Adam chipping into the arms of Semple when through on goal, however the goal came at the other end with 10 minutes remaining when Ohakam made a hash of dealing with a through pass allowing Gareth Armstrong the simple task of stroking the ball past Robertson.
Rabs made their second change sending on Kenny Connolly for Meechan. With 7 minutes remaining Robertson did well in blocking a Demster shot past the post, from the resulting corner Armstrong headed over the bar. Athletic had loud appeals for hand-ball in the box turned down by Referee Newlands then in the 85th minute Iain Diack made it 7-3 and his personal total to four when he controlled the ball at the edge of the penalty box before slotting it into the corner of the net.
Full-Time ; Rob Roy 7 v Glenafton Athletic 3.
Verdict;- A great result for Rabs with Player of the Match Iain Diack showing his goal-scoring prowess which takes the Adamslie Park side to second top in the league table. Only downside which must concern the managerial team is the gifting of goals by the defence.
Ref Watch;- A steady performance by Referee Newlands and his assistants.
