Musselburgh Windsor 15s saw out a resurgent second-half performance from Edinburgh City 15s to win 3-2 in a tightly-contested league clash at Forrester High School.
The visitors dictated the opening stages of the game, and took an early lead through Robert Cole.
Pressing high, Musselburgh didn’t look content with the scoreline and their persistence paid off when Connor White chased down a hopeful ball forward before holding off the defender and placing the ball into the far corner of the net.
Straight from the restart, Jason Whitehead headed in to give Edinburgh hope. Then, two minutes later, Kyle Rylance shot past the Windsor keeper.
Musselburgh wrapped up the win when, with 20 minutes left, White fired in from a low cross.
Tynie rise to the four
Tynecastle 17s extended their unbeaten league record to six games with a 4-0 victory away to AC Oxgangs 17s.
On a wet and windy afternoon at Colinton Mains Park, the visitors got off to a flying start when Matthew Mackenzie lobbed the goalkeeper to give Tynie a third-minute lead.
Ten minutes before half-time, the visitors doubled their lead. Patient build-up play allowed Ben Gardner to slip in behind the Oxgangs defence before finding the bottom corner.
Into the second half, Tynecastle grabbed two more goals through Luke Dewar and Lloyd Livingston to wrap things up.
Kane able to hit hat-trick
Currie Star 17s produced a dominant display to emerge 6-1 winners in the first round of the Prison Officers Cup against Bonnyrigg Rose 17s.
Dominic Kane gave Currie the lead on the 20-minute mark when he spun his marker and finished ten yards out.
Ten minutes after the interval, Cameron Ross extended Currie’s lead with a neat finish. Then, Kane followed up Ross’ free-kick to make it 3-0.
With 25 minutes left to play, Currie managed three more to heap misery on Bonnyrigg.
First, Ross scored a brilliant solo effort. Then, Kane scored a third with a well-taken finish at the near post, before setting up Aidan Quinn to make it six.
Bonnyrigg never gave up and grabbed a goal at the end thanks to a Blair Jones header, but it was a mere consolation in what had been a well-deserved win for the Edinburgh outfit.
