After 3 weeks without a match, due to weather, both teams came into Sunday’s semi final with positive attitude. Ground conditions were muddy but fairly good on a bitterly cold day.

 Within just a few minutes Loanhead certainly looked like the stronger team and the first goal for them, scored by Stuart Thomson, came within 7 minutes.

Craig Forrest, keen to get his first goal on his home ground, went on to score twice within the next 10 minutes.

Craigroyston fought back with a few chances but failed to score ending the first half 3 – 0.

The second half brought Craigroyston fighting back with Loanhead determined not to let this semi final out of their grasp.

In a more equal, but still mostly dominated by Loanhead second half, the only goal came from Loanhead's Craig Forrest. Set up by Owen Cassidy giving Craig his hat trick.

A clean, well played game ended a 4 – 0 victory for Loanhead taking them to the final against Longniddry Villa Blues.
