Pirates shut out Trojans 34-0 (14 May 2013)
Pirates 34 - 0 Trojans
This much-anticipated clash failed to live up to expectation on a day more reminiscent of March than May. West Coast had a squad, depleted by injuries, that was half the number of their visitors and it became clear from early on that this was going to be a one-sided contest.
East Kilbride received the opening kick-off and put together a short drive which took them to the Trojans' 16-yard line. However, they opted to run a play on 4th Down rather than attempt the Field Goal and Pirates Quarterback Ryan Hunter was tackled for a loss.
