Leith hosted Dalkeith at Leith Links with Dalkeith eager to put their cup final defeat on Friday behind them and concentrate on winning the league. Dalkeith went into the game 5 points ahead with two games left and looked the most likely to score right from the first whistle. Both teams got the ball down and played some great football.

In a tight 1st half it was Dalkeith's impressive striker Owen Winnik who opened the scoring with a rocket of a shot from the edge of the box, and Dalkeith should have made it two following a great move from Matthew Scotland whose composure on the ball and range of passing was a joy to watch. He played a perfectly weighted ball to Fraser Walker whose shot went just wide.

Dalkeith were dominating the midfield due to Matthew Scotland and Calum Beilski who both passed the ball and kept possession time after time, playing with a great deal of composure and vision setting up attack after attack. Winnik went close again when the Leith keeper failed to hold Walkers shot but but Winnik blasted over the bar from 6 yards.

The Dalkeith defenders were also doing a great job keeping the Leith attacks at bay, especially Robert Cole and Jake Beveridge who both dealt comfortably with everything Leith threw at them. Leith had their defender Cameron Coppola to thank for the game not being over by half time with some fantastic defending. Leith had their chances too with Jake Montgomery making a great run but his shot was wide. Just before half time following more great play from Dalkeiths midfield duo, Scotland and Beilski, Owen Winnik popped up to grab his second goal.

The second half saw Leith come back into it after scoring a great goal, but Dalkeith stepped up a gear and Lewis Latimer who had had a quiet 1st half on the right moved up front and scored two quick goals to make it 4-1. This was a great example of youth football with both teams playing attractive football but at the end of the day it was Dalkeith who were the hungrier team and well deserved their victory.

Full Time: Leith Athletic Colts 1-4 Dalkeith CYP
