Kelty Hearts Colts will advance to the AFYFC Under 16's Easter Cup final after a dramatic penalties victory over Hearts of Beath.
Kelty were 3-0 up going into the last 10 minutes of the game when Hearts of Beath produced a stunning comeback to send the game to penalties, where Kelty managed to emerge victorious.
It was Beath who had the first real opportunity after six minutes when a corner kick fell into the path of Brandon Gonsales whose shot could only find the side netting.
Kelty had the lead just two minutes later when a good run from James Taylor created space for him to try and cut across goal, which deflected off of the unfortunate Patrick McComiskie and into the net.
That goal appeared to calm the nerves of Kelty and they started to control the game, winning the midfield battle and putting Hearts of Beath under great pressure. In the 10th minute when Jake Jarvie found himself one-on-one with Beath's stand-in 'keeper Blair Kerr, with the number one coming out on top with a good save.
Five minutes later though, Kelty had extended their lead with an excellent strike from Aaron Scott from long range, which was too much for Kerr to get to.
Kerr, who is not a goalkeeper by trade, was doing well to keep the score down and produced a stunning fingertip save on the 17th minute after Ryan Jeffrey found himself through on goal.
Kelty had their third after 21 minutes though and it was Aaron Scott again, this time from a volley inside the penalty area which found the bottom corner of the net.
The home side were now sitting comfortably and were looking for more goals, while Beath were just loking to get into hallf-time and regroup. Hearts of Beath were hanging on, and nearly found themselves further behind when Scott layed the ball into the path of Jarvie to fire his shot just wide of the goal.
