Hutchison Vale met Tynecastle in the South East Region Under 15's Cup Final at New Countess Park, Dunbar.
Tynecastle needed to play the full match with ten men, due to injuries, cup tied players and suspensions and, despite some valiant defending from goalkeeper Kieran Green and the back four, they were unable to stop the Hutchie onslaught.
Hutchie took the lead in the opening minute. Ryan Fox’s shot went into the bottom right corner of the net, after a good passing move from the well drilled Hutchie side.
Cameron Milne added the second goal for Hutchie in the eighth minute, finishing powerfully into the bottom right corner from 30 yards out.
Tynecastle had their first sniff of action in the 13th minute. Lloyd Livingstone’s shot sailed wide of the left upright.
Hutchie added a third in the 21st minute. Fraser Paton’s cross was deflected by Green but Ryan Fox was on hand to finish the move off from inside the six yard box.
Lewis Swaney added another four minutes later. He lobbed the ball into the net from the left side of the penalty area.
Ryan Fox completed his hat trick before half time. Paton’s low cross met the Hutchie striker who shot into the top left corner.
Tynecastle managed to get forward just before the break, but Livingstone’s shot went wide.
Half Time: Hutchison Vale FC 5-0 Tynecastle FC
Hutchison Vale did not take their foot off the gas after the restart. After a lot of pressure inside the penalty area, the ball fell kindly to Ethan Feachen-Hamilton, but his shot was superbly diverted wide by Green.
A sixth goal was added in the 43rd minute. Arran Singh’s shot was saved well by Green, but Jack Cook lapped up the rebound to add his name to the scoresheet.
Innes Goodall scored to make it 7-0, volleying into the net after Feachen-Hamilton’s perfectly placed cross.
Hutchison Vale appeared to be content to play the ball around the ten man Tynecastle team after the seventh goal. Instrumental midfielders Regan Hendry and Feachen-Hamilton were taken off as Hutchie looked to see out the match.
By this point, no one could blame the Tynecastle team for dropping their heads, and some meaty challenges were to follow. Lewis Mackay and Daniel Headspeath were booked for fouls in the last quarter of an hour.
Hutchie Vale were to add two more goals before full time. In the 56th minute, Cameron Fraser scored the best goal of the match. He Lionel Messied himself past two Tynecastle players before lashing the ball across goal into the bottom left corner.
Fraser turned provider four minutes later. His deep ball into the area found Gabrie Auriemma who headed the ball delicately over Green into the net.
Referee Alan Downie finally relieved the ten men of Tynecastle of their duties, and Hutchison Vale, once again, lifted the South East Region Cup.
Full Time: Hutchison Vale 9-0 Tynecastle FC
