The second of the four finals at Dunbar was Hutchison Vale taking on Tynecastle, a fixture seen many times before on this showpiece occasion. Tynie took the lead through Daniel Purves’ deflected effort only 9 minutes into the game. 
The first goal came from a quickly taken Tynie throw in from Aaron Wilson, which was given to Cameron Mills. A flick from him fell to Daniel Purves, and his effort was deflected over the Hutchie goalkeeper and into the net. 1-0 Tynie.
Hutchie came close 20 minutes in to levelling the scores. A corner swung in met the head of Steven Mackay, but his header was just wide of Jordan Browns’ post. 
A free kick from Euan Anderson almost got Hutchie back on levels terms. A 25 yard free kick hit low forced Jordan Brown into a smart save to divert the ball wide and away to safety. 
10 minutes before half time, Mills worked his way into the Hutchie box, knocked the ball past the Mackay and appeared to be fouled by the big defender. However, referee Paul Taylor waved away any shouts for a penalty. From my angle, there was contact. 
Tynie almost double their lead through Andrew Lickley. Daniel Purves worked the ball onto his left foot down the left hand side, and fired low into the box towards Lickley but the big midfielder couldn’t get his feet sorted to get a good connection on the flick towards goal. 
That was that for the first half and Tynie took a well deserved lead into half time.

Hutchie came quickly out the blocks after the restart, and Euan Henderson came within inches of equalising. He found himself in some space on the left hand side of the 6 yard box, and on the tight angle, his shot scraped the outside of the post. 
Gregor Lamb came close to equalising for Hutchie with his long range shot. He found space 18 yards out, let rip, but Lewis Gill got in the way to deflect the ball over the bar for a corner. The corner found the head of Dale Skinner but he headed wide.
Hutchie did equalise not too long after. Daniel Nichol drilled the ball into a crowded penalty area from the left side, Gregor Lamb jumped the highest and guided his header into the top corner, leaving Brown with no chance in the Tynie goal. 1-1.
Hutchie were beginning to pile the pressure on the Tynie goal. Their latest chance coming through Skinner who fired a shot low towards goal, but Brown got down well to push the ball away from the danger.
All the Hutchie pressure paid off as they took the lead. Skinner battled to win the ball back, and his first time cross towards Declan Glass was inch perfect as the striker tucked the ball away on the half volley. Great strike, 2-1 Hutchie. 
As soon as Hutchie finished celebrating, Tynie had equalised. A cross into the box from the corner flag from Jordan Purves fell to his twin Daniel Purves who scored his second of the game. 2-2.
The goals were coming thick and fast as Hutchie took the lead for the second time. The corner was headed away by Tynie captain Ciaran McKenzie, but was knocked back into the 6 yard box and Dale Skinner got a toe to the ball to prod it into the bottom corner. 3-2 Hutchie. 
Hutchie almost gave themselves a 4-2 advantage. Glass was tightly marked in the corner flag, but somehow managed to get the ball through to Grant Rose. The big striker then turned Gill relatively easily to find space, and he fired the ball with some venom but the ball ended up over the bar. 
That was the final act of the match as referee Paul Taylor blew the final whistle, much to the delight of the Hutchie players, but the despair of the unlucky Tynecastle team.

Gregor Lamb scored the equaliser for his team and was superb all afternoon causing problems with his direct running and great with the ball at his feet.
Daniel Purves must be credited for his two goals, but captain Ciaran McKenzie was brilliant at the back for Tynie. He won every header and tackle he went for. A proper leader as he rallied his troops when they went behind.
