Edina Hibs 13s came from behind to lift the Ken Ritchie Cup with a 3-1 win over Bonnyrigg Rose Colts at New Dundas Park.

Rose struck first on the home park of their junior outfit in the early stages of the game as Josh Winnik scrambled the ball in at the back post.

As a fairly even first half drew to a close, Edina found an equaliser to blow the final wide open. Daniel Duncan’s free-kick from all of 30 yards flew over goalkeeper Ryan Kay and into net.

Both sides looked dangerous going forward at the start of the second period, although it was Edina who grabbed another to complete the turnaround when Liam Docherty buried a spot-kick.

Bonnyrigg dug deep as they went in search of an equaliser and they almost found one with ten minutes remaining, but Cameron Quinn couldn’t quite turn in Jack Solway’s cross from the right.

Edina made sure of the win in stoppage time with a goal on the break thanks to a calm finish from William Scott.
