Edina Hibs fought back for a 3-3 draw on Sunday against fellow Edinburgh side, Hutchison Vale, in the Division 1 League Cup. The match was too close to call as both sides produced stellar performances with Edina going ahead twice while Hutchie went ahead just the once. Yet it finished level at Jewel Park.

Into the first half and Edina opened up the scoring in the 19th minute thanks to a free kick taken by Lewis MacKinnon 25 yards away from goal. The youngster played the ball into the box to find his captain, Rhys Kert, who took a touch and then made body contact with Hutchie keeper, Max Gordon-Tennant. Despite this, the ball still managed to roll into the goal and meant Edina were the ones who lead first.

Hutchie managed to level things just three minutes later. Ryan Borthwick received the ball in the 22nd minute inside the box surrounded by Edina defenders. However, he managed to get a shot away and stick the ball into the bottom left hand corner of goal. 

Edina managed to get their second goal of the match in the 36th minute which meant they lead at half time. Another free kick, this time just in from the half way line. The ball is sent into the box where Gordon-Tennant makes a fumbling effort to collect the ball but instead just makes the save. Edina captain, Kert steps up again as he benefits from the Hutchie keeper’s mistake by slotting the rebound into the bottom right hand corner of goal.

It only took five minutes into the second half for Hutchie to level things and get back into the match. Hutchie player, Grant Rose played the ball short to teammate, Borthwick in the 45th minute who shot from 15 yards out towards the keeper who made the save yet it’s not enough as the ball rolled into the right hand corner of goal.

Hutchie managed to go ahead for the first and only time in the match in the 52nd minute thanks to a stunning free kick taken by Kieran Jack. The Hutchie youngster took the free kick 25 yards out on the left hand side of goal. Jack shot with his right foot as the ball fired into the top right hand corner of goal leaving the keeper no chance to make the save.

Edina recovered the game and salvaged a point in the 66th minute thanks to Matthew Aitchison’s effort. A simple goal from the forward as he received the ball in the penalty box and sunk it into the centre of goal past Hutchie keeper, Gordon-Tennant.

What a game! I think a draw is a fair result.

Star Player
Edina Hibs BC
Hutchison Vale F.C.
Rhys Kert - Not only did he pick himself up two goals in the match to put his team ahead but he was also a commanding force of the defence and shaped the tempo of the game. He was consistent from start to finish.
Shaun Farrow - He showed a real desire to win the ball straight from kick off, closing down on chances and keeping Edina attack out of the game for a large portion of the match. He solidified the defence and was great at dictating what style of play his team wanted to go with.
Magic Moment
Edina Hibs BC
Hutchison Vale F.C.
Edina Hibs' magic moment came when their captain, Rhys Kert, picked up his second goal of the match. A bit of luck on Hibs' side meant that they were ahead at half time and the players ran to their captain to celebrate which showed the teamwork and chemistry this side has.
Hutchie's magic moment came from Kieran Jack's free kick. It wasn't only the fact that the goal meant that his side were in front for the first time in the game but it was in the manner the free kick was taken. A small run up and shot off the youngster's right foot meant the ball arrived accurately at the top right hand corner. Most keepers would have struggled to make the save.
