Hillwood Boys Club moved into the 4th Round of the Scottish Youth FA Cup with victory over Ferry Athletic at Dawson Park. Four goals in the second-half proved the difference with the Glasgow side moving one step closer to Cup glory.
As is usually the case with knock-out football the match began with both sides cancelling each other out and few clear cut chances being created. The first real opening came for the away side when a good delivery from Lewis Cannon almost picked out the onrushing Cameron Kelly at the back post. Ferry also began to find joy going forward and were ahead on the 9th minute, Jack Moir flicking the ball into the path of Owen Boath who stabbed the ball into the net.
Hillwood responed well to the set-back and found themselves level 6 minutes later, a looping cross from Kieran McCrory's free-kick found Aiden McCann and he made no mistake nodding past the keeper.
Ferry looked to restore their and immeditly began pressuring the Hillwood backline, Moir brought out a good save by Archie Dickson and Liam Scott fired an effort over the bar.
With the half drawing to a close it was Hillwoods turn to excert pressure and almost finished the half in front, Aayan Ali forcing a solid stop by Lewis Burns.
