Taylor 51, 52, Foster 53, Davidson 56
Four goals in a frantic five minute period in the middle of the second half was enough for Hutchison Vale to edge out Musselburgh Windsor at Pinkie Saint Peter’s primary school.
The first half was a close fought encounter but as Taylor Steven put the away side in front on 51 minutes, the pattern of the game changed and Hutchison Vale made sure to impose their dominance of the later stages with a further three goals.
The visitors definitely started the brighter of the sides, Bruno Davidson dragged an effort wide inside the opening minute. It was a sign of more to come.
Hutchie were pushing for the opener, Steven, Davidson and Ciaran Heeps all coming close in the early stages of the match.
Windsor got forward well and counter attacks became more frequent as the half went on, Tyler Pryde creating the best of the opportunities as he got to the byline but as he tried to square the ball across the face it was cut out and a superb challenge from Rhyad Jelly put the ball behind for a corner a minute later. The corner was taken short by Daniel Combe to Fergus Williams, who lashed an effort from a tight angle on the right wing off the foot of the post. Windsor’s best chance of the opening period.
A free kick on the halfway line from Williams was inches from connecting with the boot of skipper Jacob Shyngle and moments later Hutchie were on the counter with Keir Brown beating his man and putting a low cross into the feet of Heeps but his low effort was blocked by Liam Henderson.
Windsor turned up the pressure at the end of the first half, Combe whipping a cross into the middle which was palmed away by goalkeeper Logan Robertson who was then clattered into by Finn Thomson and a free kick was awarded to the away side.
The final action of the first half came when Thomson sweetly struck a free kick from 25 yards that forced Robertson to tip the ball behind for a corner at full stretch as the sides went in locked together at the break.
Windsor started the second half with intent, within 15 seconds of the restart Pryde had won a free kick but but Williams couldn’t keep the ball down as it looped over the crossbar.
Chances followed at both ends in a vicious start to the second half. Thomson saw another free kick caught this time by Robertson and Heeps narrowly missed the top corner after a knock down from Jelly following a corner.
Eventually the deadlock would be broken. The ball slid into the feet of Steven, who still had a great deal to do as he held off two challenges before tucking the ball away low at the near post of Lennon Flood, who despite getting his fingertips to it, could not keep it out.
It didn’t take long for the second to arrive, Steven again finding a pocket of space on the edge of the area, before turning and rifling the ball past Flood to give Hutchison Vale a firm grip on proceedings.
The momentum was firmly in the visitors favour at this stage and Lewis Foster added a third for Hutchie following the ball coming over from the wing into Steven’s feet, who unselfishly played across to Foster. The midfielder eventually managed to bundle the ball home after a couple of attempts for goal number three.
Things didn’t get any better for Windsor as Williams was then dismissed and given the marching orders for a crunching late challenge on substitute Sam Kilboy, who was able to continue after a few minutes off the park.
On 56 minutes, Davidson found himself in acres of space as he was sent way on the left wing. He proceeded to glide inside past a couple of defenders and curl a delicious finish around Flood as the ball nestled in the side netting, making it 4-0.
Hutchie were keen to add to their lead with time running out, Kilboy, Kyle Craig and Matthew Dalglish all came relatively close to the fifth.
Pryde almost got a consolation for Windsor as he pressed the Vale backline but the ball wouldn't sit kindly for the winger and was eventually scrambled to safety.
Steven will feel he should've rounded off the hatrick in the last minute. Dalglish found the overlapping Jake Houten who powered down the wing and put the cross on a plate for Taylor but the striker lifted the effort over the crossbar on the half volley.
A close game for the most part but Hutchison Vale were deserved victors here. The result sees Hutchie leapfrog Musselburgh Windsor and move into third place in the league.

Star Player

Tyler Pryde was a standout for Musselburgh Windsor. He caused the Hutchie fullbacks a problem throughout the game with his willingness to take on a man and who a cross into the box. He was unlucky not to find himself on the scoresheet as well.
Taylor Steven was the star player for Hutchison Vale. There were a number of big performances from the away side but Steven's two goals in quick succession made a real impact on the game and he was unlucky not to cap off the hatrick at the end.
Magic Moment

Pryde almost gave Windsor a crucial lead at the time as he blistered past his marker down the right wing and looked up but just couldn't pick out the right pass to the man in the middle.
The fourth and final goal - Bruno Davidson, who was excellent in midfield, picked up the ball on the left wing before drifting past the defenders in his wake and expertly bending the ball into the far corner to round off a brilliant performance.
