    <div>Tain Thistle secured their first win of the 2018 season with the lion's share in a ten goal thriller at Melvich today. An eight minute hat-trick for Gordy Mackay was the highlight of a first half goal flurry for the Jags which saw them end the first period five goals to the good before they rounded off the win in the second half.</div><div><br /></div><div>It took until the 35th minute for Mackay to open the scoring when he tucked away a long throw from Liam Rostock and immediately after, Murray Mackintosh netted to make it 2-0 with a header. Mackay scored his second five minutes before the break after good work from Rostock and just three minutes later Mackay made it 4-0 with a superb strike from 20 yards out to record his treble. To compound Melvich's misery, Arron Christie made it five on the stroke of half time with a low drive from outside the box which flew into the bottom corner.<br /></div><div><br /></div><div>Melvich fired back through James Murray within five minutes of the restart with two quick goals to reduce the deficit, but Liam Rostock headed home a Christie corner at the other end to make it 6-2 just after the hour mark. Ten minutes later, Christie scored his second of the game to make it 7-2. <br /><br />A goal for Melvich with a quarter hour remaining added to the second half goal tally, but the outcome remained academic, as Thistle ran out 7-3 winners to record their first points of the league campaign.<br /></div><div><br /></div><b>Team: </b>Cormack, D Mackay, Noble, A Christie, Noble, I Mackintosh, Fraser, M Mackintosh, T Farquhar, Rostock, G Mackay<br /><div class="videoWrapper"><iframe src="https://www.youtube.com/embed/KnD_KQzD3II" allow="autoplay; encrypted-media" allowfullscreen="" width="560" height="315" frameborder="0"></iframe></div>
