Kilpatrick v Bellfield (u17s)An entertaining cup-tie saw Ayrshire side Bellfield battle through to the semi-final of the Scottish Cup after a 3-2 extra-time victory over Kilpatrick.

The match swung from end to end as Bellfield dominated the first half before Kilpatrick battled back to control the second 45 minutes but it was the away side that stole the victory after an even extra time period.

The match began in a scrappy fashion with no real chances of note, although it was Bellfield who made more of the attacking play.  They brought a couple of decent saves from Lewis Wood in the Kilpatrick goal from free-kicks but weren’t able to trouble the goalkeeper.

Kilpatrick struggled to put together any real potent attacks and threatened only from set-pieces.

The first half definitely belonged to Bellfield and they eventually made the pressure tell after 36 minutes when David Sheddon converted a header from a corner from the left.  It was no less than their play deserved.

Winger Sean Mears missed a half-chance to make it 2-0 before the whistle blew for half-time.

The second half began in much the same fashion as Bellfield continued to press but without managing to extend their lead.

Kilpatrick again struggled to make any in-roads but finally managed to exert some pressure fifteen minutes into the half as they won corner after corner before Johnny Dyer equalised.

The goal came as a free-kick from the halfway line was played into the back post area before being headed across the six-yard box and falling to a Kilpatrick player.  Daniel Farren in the Bellfield goal produced a good close-range stop but couldn’t prevent Dyer from burying the rebound from an angle.  Unfortunately this was the end of Farren's game as he had to go off injured.

Kilpatrick had their tails up and their attacking play was in full flow as they quickly took the lead after a mix up at the back saw a Bellfield defender deflect the ball into his own net after a cross from the right wing.

Bellfield were now struggling to cope with their opponent’s new-found confidence and if it wasn’t for some good last-gasp defending Kilpatrick may well have been out of sight.

Against the run of play, however, Bellfield equalised with around five minutes to play.

A counter-attack won a free-kick about 25 yards from the Kilpatrick goal which brought a decent save from the goalkeeper but he couldn’t hold it and Sean Mears pounced onto the rebound to knock it into the empty net.

Extra-time was much more even and flowing as both sides had decent efforts on goal.

Bellfield’s Andy Hunter had the best effort of the first period as his low shot was saved by the legs of Wood after a deep free-kick fell to the midfielder’s feet.

The second period of extra-time was just as even with mainly set-pieces and long shots troubling both ‘keepers but it was Bellfield who stole the victory with six minutes left.

The Kilpatrick midfield conceded possession and the Bellfield attack punished them with a quick pass to the right wing before Steven Hill headed home the winner as he met Shedden's cross, wrongfooting the goalkeeper.
