Under 14's Kenny McLean Cup

On this calm November morning at Pilrig Park, Redpath Albion hosted KSQ in the Kenny McLean cup.
 
No strikers were available for KSQ today due to injuries, so a few alternations in positions had to be made. 
 
The game kicked off with Redpath Albion pressing KSQ high in their own half, early pressure almost paid off for Redpath when a chip from their striker went over the head of the KSQ keeper, only for William Paget to make an excellent goal line clearence.
 
Kake Hannan and Lloyd Rohan were the partnership up front for KSQ and worked well together. 
 
There were very few chances in the opening exchanges, with neither team really looking to threat their oppositions goal. 
 
However, on the twenty five minute mark KSQ won themselves a corner. The resulting cross was adjudged to be handle by the Redpath Albion defender and the referee pointed to the spot. Jack Hannan stepped up and slammed the resulting spot kick high into the top corner, 1-0 to KSQ. 
 
KSQ certainly gave themselves a lift after going in front, and some great pressure for Cameron Innes on the left wing saw his cross across the Redpath Albion box cannon off of the home sides defender, giving KSQ a two goal cushion going into half time.
 
Half Time : Redpath Albion 0-2 Kirkliston South Queensferry
 
The second half both sides again struggled to make any real chances, but both sides did keep the ball well and play some nice football at times.
 
Unfortunately for Redpath Albion, they could not come up with a reply to KSQ going two to the good at half time as the KSQ defence stood strong in the second half and managed to see the game out, earning themselves a play in the next round of the competition.
