Hutchison Vale eased into the 5th round of the SYFA Challenge Cup with 5-0 victory over visitors Westdyke, from the North East, at SaughtonPark.

In an open first half, Hutchison Vale raced into a four goal lead courtesy of Mac McCloy, Grant Rose and Euan Valentine whilst an unfortunate own goal compunded Westdyke's first half grief.

A spirited second half performance from the travelling side did not go unnoticed, but they could do little to threaten Ross Coats in the Hutchison Vale goal. Rose's freekick, his second of the game, rounded off a solid afternoon for the SERYFA Division 1 league leaders.

Jack Temple set the tone for the match just thirty seconds in; the midfielders powerful run and cross finding McCloy from 7 yards out, and the number 4 could not miss.

Goal scorer turned provider for the home side’s second goal, as McCloy's lay off teed up Rose who volleyed home left footed from the edge of the area.

An own goal and a strike from Valentine made it 4-0, nullifying a tremendous double save from Craig Robb to deny first Gregor Lamb then Euan Henderson in between.

Hutchison Vale had further opportunities to strengthen their lead before half time. A rasping shot from Lamb clattered the crossbar, and Valentine saw his effort disallowed before a dangerous looking freekick was cleared away by a Westdyke head.

Half Time: Hutchison Vale 4-0 Westdyke Community Club

Josh Peters early charge through on goal was indicative of Westdyke’s vastly improved second half effort. 

Hutchison Vale’s accomplished passing game meant they were never far from finding an opening. Lamb's ball into the channel set Ben Swan free but there was no end product as the number 15’s cross found the side netting.

On 52 minutes Henderson latched on to another Swan pass and took the ball round the keeper. But when it came to the finish, his final touch was lacking and he watched the ball trickle wide.

Rose did eventually make it five with a free kick driven low in to Robb's bottom right hand corner, but that would be their last action in front of the Westdyke goal.

A shot from Fraser Bruce was the closest Westdyke came to grabbing what would only have been a consolation for the Aberdeenshire side to take back with them on their long journey north.

Vale's Scottish Cup dream lives on, with the 2000 born side trying to emulate the 2011/12 competition win of the 1999's and retain the trophy for the Edinburgh club.

Gregor Lamb controlled the game from the centre of the park and, when on the ball, always had his head up looking for a pass.
Craig Robb was not afraid to get hurt, making numerous dives at striker's feet to claim the ball and keep the score respectable.
