Cup joy for Harestanes

Harestanes 2 Kilsyth 1

(M&M Cup Final)

P. MARSHALL’s downward header seven minutes from time earned Harestanes M&M Cup glory over local rivals Kilsyth, as the Kirkintilloch club ended their season on a high.

Harestanes took the lead in the 19th minute when Welsh’s corner was headed in by McRae at the back post.

But Kilsyth equalised in the 44th minute and looked the better side in the second-half.

However, while they will feel they were at least worth the extra time, Harestanes were happy enough just to lift the trophy after the classic sucker punch.

Kilsyth certainly had the more convincing chances and looked the more liable to score, but they ran out of steam towards the end.

A satisfying if not spectacular victory for Harestanes.
