The first half was fairly evenly contested but the Bluebells turned up the heat in the second half and netted five without reply.
The visitors had a chance to open the scoring in the 10th minute when Bryan Deasley played in Scot McComiskie, but the latter’s ball across the face of goal was too strong and failed to find a touch.
Conway was proving a handful with dangerous crosses into the Lochee box.
It was Carnoustie’s turn to beat the offside trap but Stewart was off his line quickly to clear the danger.
So, no goals at the break, but a booking for Carnoustie’s Sam Simpson in the early part of the second half was to come back to haunt them.
The Bluebells opened the scoring on 54 minutes. A McComiskie free kick deep into the Carnoustie box saw LAWSON appear to get a touch to steer the ball past Robbie, though Scot may also lay claim to the goal.
Greg Kirk had a chance soon after to increase the lead but was only able to knock Deasley’s pass wide of the post.
The striker almost notched his hat trick minutes later but this time Robbie brought off a good save to deny him.
On 84 minutes Lochee made a double substitution, bring on Cammy McMahon and Jamie Montgomery for Kirk and Birse and what a substitution it proved to be!
With his first touch McMahon sent MONTGOMERY clear and, with his first touch, he slotted home number four.
And there was still time for Danny MILLAR to score against his old club, driving the ball home after Deasley’s effort had been blocked on the line.
That’s now two goals in two games for Danny so, as well as keeping them out at the back, he’s chipping in with goals at the other end.
However, my man of the match goes to Dougie Cameron who put in a power of work in the Lochee midfield.
