Braidhurst made it a third Scottish cup final in a row with a convincing 5-2 victory over Bishopbriggs Academy, the school from Motherwell now not only have their sights on the final at Fir Park but also have an eye on the British cup at the start of the summer which was actually won by a Scottish team last year in the shape of Bannerman High.
Braidhurst started off the game in real style putting their opponents on the back foot from the word go and within 15 minutes were not just one but two up, Dylan Falconer blasted his side one up with a brilliant finish then soon after the lead was doubled by Nicholas Mullen. All this had happened before Bishy had even got the chance to test Braidhurst's keeper properly.
Bishopbriggs did start to try attacking Braidhurst more and looked like getting a bit of joy down the right hand side and this is exactly how they wriggled there way back in to this first half when some lovely play down the right flank resulted in a cross being whipped in and after some bad defending let Andrew Cook in to pull it back to 2-1.
Just before half time Braidhurst player Falconer thought he grabbed his second when he latched on to a slipped ball through but couldn't keep his composure to net.
Braidhurst finally got another goal however to extend their lead back to two and it was centre back Rico Quitongo who rose above his marker to header home and give his side a two goal advantage at the break.
