Crosshouse defeated Ayr Boswell 3-0 to lift the BFM Cup at the 2000s age group. A goal in first half stoppage time from Ryan Jennings had Crosshouse leading at the break. Then, Robbie Laidlaw converted a penalty ten minutes into the second half. With virtually the last kick of the match Cole Archibald sealed the scoreline when he slotted home from six yards to make it 3-0.
Crosshouse were in control for the full of the first half, and they registered their first clear cut chance inside six minutes. Reece Millar burst through a wave of players, however when the goal opened up for him he hit his shot straight at David Hill in the Boswell goal. A great overlapping run by wide right man Jennings lead to a superb cross by the afore mentioned player but Laidlaw's resulting header was too close to the keeper.
Whilst this game was always going to be close, Crosshouse just looked more dangerous than their opponents. A counter-attacking style resulted in them often cutting up their opponents defence, and from set pieces they were superior offensively and defensively.
In saying that, Callum Peters had a great chance to put Crosshouse ahead - his free header from a corner, though, went straight over the crossbar.
And Boswell had thought they'd taken the lead just before the half-hour mark when Ryan Whyte turned home Jordan Bell's flick on - the linesman had his flag up early and the celebrations were short lived.
Crosshouse did however take the lead in the last minute of regulation time. Jordan Mason's whipped free kick found its way to Jennings and he duly converted with a lovely side-footed finish.
Boswell did try to rally with a Jack Taylor driven free kick from in deep added time, however Crosshouse goalkeeper Jamie Wilson tipped it wide. That was the first time the goalkeeper had really touched the ball.
