Barrhead added to their Scottish Cup win by overcoming league winners Drumsagard in a hotly-contested West Region Cup final.
Drumsagard kicked off in Springburn and managed to take the lead after just three minutes of play, following a well-rehearsed set piece.
Left winger Dylan Campbell took an inward-swinging corner from the left corner that was met by the head of centre back Ben Duncan. Duncan headed the ball across the box to striker Cole McKinnon, who struck a powerful volley from the centre of the box, giving Barrhead keeper Noah Campbell little chance of saving it.
Drumsagard were unable to savour their lead for very long however, with Barrhead finding an equaliser just three minutes later.
Right winger Vincent Scott broke down the right and fired a low shot at the Drumsagard goal, but Barrhead goalie Annan Lung was able to parry the shot to his right. Striker Paul O’Hare was waiting for the ball at the far post, and showed good composure by taking a touch before slotting the ball home.
Drumsagard continued to threaten from set pieces, going close with another corner. Duncan took a corner from the right and fired a high ball into the box that looked like it could go in the net. Campbell got a hand to the ball but Matthew Sorley did well to head it off the line.
Drumsagard continued to press for a goal to take the lead and looked the more likely team to score, showcasing some slick, clever passing in the final third.
McKinnon soon got his and his team’s second resulting from a corner. Duncan hit a high cross towards the back post from the right side where McKinnon was waiting, and the striker rose well to nod the ball into the back of the net.
Barrhead responded well to the goal by scoring an equaliser shortly afterwards. O’Hare did well to rob Drumsagard left back Lewis Gray of the ball, then drove towards the box, beating another Drumsagard defender in the process. The forward cut inside at the edge of the box and rifled in a powerful shot to the right of the goal.
McKinnon then came close to sealing a hat-trick when he got on the end of a long ball into the Barrhead box. McKinnon did well to turn his defender and get a shot away, but his shot rolled just wide of the far post.
Drumsagard then came close from another corner from the left. Campbell hit the ball into the box and it eventually fell to the feet of Kyle MacDonald about 12 yards from goal. MacDonald fired a shot at the bottom left corner but was denied by Vincent Scott who was waiting by the post.
Barrhead pressed hard for an advantage before half-time but struggled to create clear-cut chances. The ref soon blew his whistle and both teams left the pitch with two goals apiece.
