Rosyth U19s 1-Woodside U19s 2
A last minute winner sent Woodside into third round of the Scottish Cup.
Woodside made difficult work of their Scottish Cup second round tie against their second division opponents Rosyth at a blustery Pitreavie. The away team had the vast majority of the possession but it took them until the 15th minute to take the lead through a well worked goal from Ryan Kelly. Woodside continued to press but could not extend their lead before half time.
HT Rosyth 0-Woodside 1
The second half got underway in much the same vein as the first, with Woodside trying to cash in on the vast amount of possession they had in midfield.  Tiredness began to set into the home side who had defended stoutly, it looked like Woodside's time to press home their advantage, but bizarrely in the 70th minute a goal came at the other end, with the Woodside keeper clashing with the Rosyth attacker and the ball spilling for the Rosyth player to sweep the ball home. Woodside were stung into action and it took a goal line clearance from a Conor Hay effort to prevent Woodside from regaining the lead. The tie looked to be heading to extra time when the Rosyth defence were breached in the last minute with a fine effort from Lewis Baker who latched onto a through ball from midfield, beat the last defender and slipped the ball past the keeper.
