North Merchiston Under 16s
Competition: Jackie Faichney Memorial Cup - Semi final
Venue: Meggetland 3G
Date: 06/05/2012

Hutchison Vale showed great mental strength and determination to beat a well organised North Merchiston team this afternoon, both teams putting in some great performances in recent weeks. This cup tie was always going to be one to watch for a natural and it lived up to expectation.
Both teams started brightly but it was North Merchiston who broke the dead lock with a diagonal ball from the right allowing Hamish Law to burst through with pace and the smash the ball across Jack Roden in the vale goal. 
North Merchiston were pushing for another when Warren Paterson won the ball in the midfield and placed a nice pass down the left hand side for a on running Scott Taylor Mackenzie who drilled in across the body of Darren Mitchell and into the far corner of the net.
Hutchison Vale responded well with some neat passing and their best move of the game to claim the second goal with Jordan Combe needing just a tap in for 2 yards out.
Half Time: Hutchison Vale Under 16s 2-1 North Merchiston Under 16s
North Merchiston players came out firing for the second half, good football was being played. North Merchiston had a wonderful chance Calum Baptie had found himself in great space unmarked 6 yards out but seemed  surprise when the ball landed at his feet, his shot went just icnhes past the right hand post.
This game was end to end stuff with both teams playing some cracking football on the 3G surface. As North Merchiston pushed for the equaliser they were caught at the back from clearance up the right hand channel Dylan Moore raced onto it and head towards goal and found himself one on one with the Merchiston keeper Darren Mitchell. Moore made no mistake, calmly smashing home off the inside of the post to finish a great comeback by Hutchison Vale to claim their spot in the final.
