Penicuik Athletic turned in a clinical display against Currie to advance to the next round of the U-14 Kenny McLean Cup. The two sides met each other two weeks previously in a closely contested encounter which finished 2-1 in Athletic's favour.
There was no shortage of commitment in this match either. Adam Walker and Jack Wann went close early on for the visitors but the deadlock was eventually broken five minutes before the half-time whistle through Walker. He received a pass from Jay Bothomley, steadying himself before firing past Preston in goal. 
Walker doubled the advantage two minutes into the second half and Wann scored the third after a fine penetrating run through the middle. Currie were showing good attacking intent without seriously troubling Ben McInnes in goal.
Currie's first real opportunity of note came when Scott Borthwick fired just wide of the post from inside the area.
John Barclay scored Penicuik's fourth goal soon after but Currie pulled one back through Lewis Bell.

Lewis Bell showed real attacking intent that was an inspiration to his team mates even when they were trailing.
Adam Walker was hungry to score from the first whistle and could have possibly had a hat-trick.

Colin Campbell, Penicuik Coach said: "It was always going to be a sticky game having played Currie a few weeks ago and we won that game 2-1. Today was similar and I just thought we were a little more clinical up front and the defence played well so I'm delighted with the result. "
