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.
