Hutchison Vale F.C 0

  • Saughton Park
  • Under 19´s
  • Foundation of Hibs Supporters Cup
Tynecastle deservedly progressed in blustery conditions in what was to be a tight affair in the glamour second round tie of the Foundation of Hibs Supporters Cup. A solitary goal midway through the first half was enough for the hosts who adapted best to the conditions and ultimately appeared more confident in avoiding the swirling gales of the heavens and attacking via short and accurate passing along the ground.
 
It was to be the home side who threatened first from a freekick after Danny Cameron had been tugged back. Midfield maestro and one half of the Scott twins present in the starting eleven for Tynecastle, Kyle stepped up but the freekick was dealt with comfortably by Scott Page in the visiting goal.
 
In the windswept conditions at Saughton Park set pieces were always going to be difficult for the respective defences and it was from a corner where Hutchison Vale registered their first effort on goal. Rhys Surgeon met the cross firmly however the header flew harmlessly over.
 
Shortly afterwards Tynecastle had the ball in the back of the net. After another freekick effort from K. Scott had went for a corner the resulting set piece caused havoc in the visiting defence before the ball eventually found its way into the net, however to the dismay of the home side the referee adjudged that the final touch came from a Tynecastle player in an offside position.
 
Tynecastle continued to probe this time threatening from open play. Danny Cameron was found advancing in the space down the inside right channel after an intelligent ball from Connor Brydon. Scott had the awareness to square the ball to Calum Helm who had found space just inside the box however the Tynecastle number 10's right footed effort couldn't find away past Page who was equal to it.
 
Hutchie were next to threaten after a dazzling run from the impressive and aptly named Ryan Huthcison. The right winger displayed blistering pace leaving two men in his wake before putting in an inviting ball from the byline. The Tynecastle defence recovered well however to clear ahead of the advancing Hutchison Vale attack.
 
Next it was Jonny Grotlin to threaten for the visitors. After being afforded space around 30 yards from goal the striker took this as an invitation to let fly. It was an invitation the Hutchie number 9 accepted with alacrity sending a dipping right footed effort just past the base of the right hand post.
 
As the half progressed it was Tynecastle who appeared more comfortable with the ball on the deck and began to threaten the space behind the visitors defence. After a swift counter attack Stephen Scott found the run of Brydon in behind with a clever flick of the outside of his right boot. However Brydons first touch allowed the defence to recover just in time as the striker was looking to execute the finish.
 
The Tynecastle hitman was again to threaten shortly afterwards coming agonisingly close to opening the scoring. After Matthew Quinn had fed the ball to the striker he struck an effort from the right hand side of the box across goal. The shot looked destined to nestle in the bottom left hand corner however with Scott Page soundly beaten the ball came off the inside of the post and rebounded into the keepers arms.
 
Tynecastle were not to be denied for long as there period of pressure finally paid dividends. The lively Stephen Scott had played to the ball to the aforementioned Brydon who in turn found his strike partner with a cute through ball. Helm made no mistake lashing a right footed effort across goal into the bottom corner rounding off a lovely team move and handing the home side a deserved lead.
 
Tynecastle nearly doubled the visitors arrears from another dangerous set piece. S. Scott curled in an inviting ball from the freekick where Quinn rose highest but the defenced couldn't get his head over it as the ball sailed over.
 
Hutchison Vale were on the front foot next when for the first time in the game the visitors exchanged intricate and accurate passes in the final third. A nice move along the edge of the box from right to left culminated in Grotlin feeding Daniel Smith however the fullbacks effort was deflected wide from 25 yards.
 
The impressive and industrious S.Smith was the instigator in Tynecastles next opportunity. The winger strode forward with intent before feeding an intelligent through ball which found the well timed run of Brydon. The striker hit a powerful effort from the left handside of the box where Page had to be alert to claw away at the near post.
 
From the resulting corner Tynecastle nearly doubled their advantage on the stroke of half time. After another teasing ball aided by the wind had caused confusion in the defence, the ball eventually fell to K. Scott on the edge who struck a low controlled right footed drive just wide of the post. 
 
The half time whistle sounded with Tyencastle holding a slender one goal advantage their play had merited, however there was certainly enough on show from the visitors to give them confidence they could draw level after the interval leaving the game nicely poised in anticipation of the second half.
 
  • Half Time:
  • Tynecastle F.C
  • 1-0
  • Hutchison Vale F.C
Hutchison Vale started the second half with confidence, dangerman Hutchison, brimming with confidence was again found in the space down the right flank. The effervescent winger whipped in another dangerous ball however the stout Tynecastle defence managed to clear their lines.
 
Tynecastle were back on the attack shortly afterwards. A freekick won on the left flank was worked short to S.Scott who drove in a wicked cross, Brydon was nearly the one to benefeit from the wonderful delivery getting a leg to it but due to the velocity of the cross he could only divert it over.
 
Brydon was again to be denied shortly afterwards Helms neat back heel found Brydon on the edge of the area however his goalbound effort was deflected off the head of the Hutchison Vale defender before looping into the welcoming arms of the keeper.
 
Hutchison Vale's bright start to the second half appeared to dissipate as Tynecastle exploited the left flank, which was proving to be an auspicious area of the pitch for the home side. The Scott twins and fullback Bradd Campsie were forming neat triangles down the left flank causing trouble for the Hutchison Vale back line on more than one occasion.
 
Hutchison Vale were still very much in the tie as long as the deficit remained at just one goal and midfielder Surgeon saw the opportunity to haul his team level, however his left footed effort was held well by Darren Mitchell in the Tynecastle goal.
 
As the game entered the final quarter Tyenastle had chances to seal victory and their passage into the 3rd round. The first opportunity was for Brydon, the striker done well before turning and unleashing a snapshot across goal where Page did well to get across and again thwart his attempts.
 
Latterly it was S.Scott who had the chance to seal it for the hosts. A long ball over the top found him in behind however his right footed effort was to close to Page who palmed it to safety denying the winger a goal his play arguably merited.
 
As the game entered the closing stages Tynecastle began to sit deeper wary of the slender advantage they held. Hutchison Vale could sense an opportunity to take the game to extra time as they kept Tynecastle in their own half however they could not find a way past the resolute defence of the home side before the final whistle sounded.
 
In the end a deserved victory for Tynecastle who proved to be more inventive in attack and solid in defence. Hutchison Vale will know it just never clicked for them today with the conditions perhaps the contributing factor. It's Tynecastle who will now move on to tackle Loanhead in the 3rd round of the Foundation of Hibs Supporters Cup and can do so in a bullish mood if this display is anything to go by.

Star Player

Hutchison Vale F.C
Stephen Scott - It was a difficult decision as his brother Kyle was equally impressive in midfield in addition to the strikers and centre backs playing their part however I think Stephen just nicks it. He provided an outlet down the left and the majority of the time he used the ball wisely. He also provided a few dangerous set pieces and with a terrific work rate to boot it culminated in a great performance from the Tynecastle number 11.
Ryan Hutchison - The Hutchie right winger was easily the visitors most dangerous palyer, the winger has pace, talent and self confidence in abundance. Even when his team were down and struglling in the second half he still had the belief to run at the Tynecastle defence and even managed to produce a nutmeg on ther Tynecastle full back, much to Ryans enjoyment!
Magic Moment
Tynecastle F.C
Hutchison Vale F.C
The decisive goal - a result of intricate and accurate passing and ended in an assured finish from Helm. Good goal.
It has to be Ryan Hutchisons lung bursting foray down the right flank in the first half. As mentioned previously he exhibited great pace and self confidence two glide past 2 men and deliver a brilliant cross. On another day the resulting cross may have resulted in a goal the run and ball merited.
