After getting the go ahead from the referee to start the game with the amount of rain fall the previous night the game started at a quick pace with both teams having a go. 
The young Blantyre hoops were having a bit more of the ball and started out looking the most likely to get the break through with both full backs Kieran McMillan and Darren Reeves pushing forward and causing a few problems for Seafar.
The breakthrough came with some great link up play from Kieran McMillan who was now starting to turn on a show with some great over all round play and Daniel Queen who slipped a clever ball through the defence for Nicholas Young to take it first time on his left foot and put it away in the far corner, 1-0 to Blantyre.  
Goal number two almost came a few minutes later when Lawrence Hughes looked as if he had curled a great effort into the top corner for the keeper to pull off what could only be described as a first class save and a few minutes later Nicholas Young again got on the end of a through ball and after rounding the keeper hit the post from a tight angle. 
Another couple of chances came the hoops way but again the Seafar goalkeeper was looking unbeatable.
The young hoops had to work hard and with Declan Conroy, Mark Whiteford and James McBride working hard and winning the midfield battle in heavy conditions and Daniel Queen pulling the strings alongside them the four midfielders were playing some great stuff.
Half Time : Blantyre Celtic 1-0 Seafar Villa White
The second half started at a frantic pace again with Lawrence Hughes being replaced with Dominic Crighton whose extra pace was a great outlet for the young hoops who seemed to have taken a break and allowing Seafar their best spell of the game. 
A good save from Andrew McNally along with some great defending from Michael Cassidy and Harrison Reilly kept the score at 1-0. 
Just as the young hoops started losing their shape and letting Seafar back into the game the midfielders again stepped up and started keeping the ball and with full backs Kieran McMillan and Darren Reeves making themselves available the hoops started getting some joy down the flanks with the pace of Dominic Crighton.
The second goal came from a great passage of play involving Reeves, McBride and Conroy and again the final ball by Daniel Queen, Dominic Crighton used great skills to cut inside past 2 defenders and was pulled down for a PK which he stepped up to slot away confidently. 
This gave the young hoops some breathing space and again apart from some great goal keeping from Seafar the game finished 2-0.
Perhaps on another day the young hoops may have taken more of their chances. 
However, some outstanding performances were on show for the home side, but Man of the Match a close call between Kieran McMillan, Harrison Reilly and Declan Conroy.
Full Time : Blantyre Celtic 2-0 Seafar Villa White
