|Lenzie YC 98s win Riverside Cup|
Lenzie YC 98s enjoyed a golden start to their season with a dramatic victory in the inaugural Riverside Cup tournament, held in Bridge of Allan.
Victories over Crieff Juniors and hosts Riverside FC put the Sky Blues into a strong position before a narrow loss to Campsie set up a nerve-jangling final match with Kinross Colts.
Needing to out-shoot Riverside on goal difference, Lenzie began strongly and Stuart Leitch’s breakthrough goal was followed by a Lewis Beveridge brace to make it 3-0.
Two late goals from Kinross made for a tight end to the tournament but the East Dunbartonshire boys were delighted to hear they had come through on goals scored.
Lenzie Section Co-ordinator Karen Graham commented: “The boys deserved their triumph for their effort and fine play. Hopefully this sets us up well for the season.”
