In a tight cup final between Spartans and Tynecastle BC, it required a piece of brilliance from Jonathan Jarron to separate the two teams, as Spartans ran out winners in a tense match at New Countess Park.
Nicholas Reid was the first to create a chance of note in the 12th minute when a series of deflections helped the ball land at his feet inside the box, but his first-time effort sailed over the bar.
Reid was in the centre of the action again a few minutes later as he fed the ball through to Jack Crombie, he raced onto the through ball with only Aaron Heap in the Tynecastle goals to beat, but the goalkeeper came out on top on this occasion, reaching the ball just before it could be fired at goal.
Jack Gammie was the first player to test the reflexes of Niall McFadden in Spartans goal with a good free-kick in the 16th minute, it looked destined for the top corner, but Gammie was equal to the effort and prevented both a goal and a corner.
Reid then set up a chance for Lorcan Gray on 19 minutes. Reid fired a ball across the box and Gray was arriving late into the box to meet it, however, the pace on the ball seemed to work against him as he scuffed his effort and saw it trickle wide of the goal.
Reece Mason was next to try his luck for Spartans, who were well on top at this stage, when he struck a curling effort from the edge of the box, but Heap was able to stretch just far enough to tip the ball over the bar for a corner, which came to nothing.
In the 23rd minute Spartans produced an incisive passing move which saw Gray and Jarron interchanging passes, before sliding in Reid who had a great chance to open the scoring, but dragged his effort wide of the post.
The pressure from Spartans only continued and they came close to scoring a few minutes before half-time, as Reid, once again at the heart of the attack, nipped his way around the defence and managed to place his shot past the keeper, but Aaron Matheson was on hand to deny him on the goal-line.
Tynecastle had a chance to grab a goal just before the interval, as Jack Carr showed brilliant strength to see off a defender in the box and get a shot away, unfortunately for him though, that shot was off target.
