This truly was one of the great comebacks in Milngavie's history, as they came back from 2-0 down with only nine minutes left on the clock against a very good Rossvale side.
 
Rossvale stunned the visitors inside a minute, when a reverse pass cut open the back four down the left and the resulting cut back set up their striker for an easy finish. 
 
Half Time :  Rossvale 1-0 Milngavie Wanderers 
 
Despite Milngavie coming into the game and pushing hard for an equaliser, it was Rossvale who doubled their lead midway into the second half with a looping shot nestling in the corner past Mackie. 
 
But Milngavie would not give up and with nine mins to go, Joe Slee weaved his way into the box and hammered a shot high for 2-1. 
 
Milngavie smelled blood now and in the last minute Kalvin Warren smashed a thirty yard freekick into the top corner, sending the away fans into delirium. 
 
Full Time : Rossvale 2-2 Milngavie Wanderers
 
If the away fans went crazy at 2-2, they went mental when Warren headed the ball past the Rossvale keeper early in extra time, before Rory McInnes done another of his special thunderbolts late into the second half to secure a place in the semi final.
