Hamilton Palace

Both teams deserve much credit for putting on a thrilling cup tie in the driving rain at Hamilton Palace. Few chances were created in a very tight first half although home ‘keeper Lloyd Fallon did have to be quick off his line to thwart Colts striker Cammy McKay, the former Moorlands front man.

Shortly after the break it was the Cumbernauld outfit who drew first blood when Jordan Pirrie’s free-kick was deflected past Fallon. Colts then enjoyed a period of territorial ascendency and the Moorlands defence had to be on their toes to keep their side in the match.

In 55 minutes though, the scores were level when Moorlands skipper Mark McNulty gratefully pounced on a loose ball to net from close range. Minutes later, centre-back Michael Clarke headed the Reds in front to complete a sensational turnaround.

Despite the reverse, Colts came storming back in search of an equaliser, keeping up the intensity and drive they had shown throughout the match. But they were undone by a quick break from Moorlands which ended with striker Dean Robertson shooting home his side’s third goal.

A late own goal made for a nervy closing few minutes but Moorlands held on to claim their place in the semi-finals.
