Bell Baxter High School will play Beath High School again this week in the Fife Cup final after beating them 2-1 on a sunny Wednesday afternoon at Auchmuty High School, Glenrothes. With a league final place at stake, neither team were holding back as a brilliant game was on show to entertain the enthusiastic spectators.
The game kicked off at 4.02pm with both teams looking for a good game. Two minutes in, Louis Appere caught onto the ball and drove it downfield towards the goal and nearly scored, but Beath were keeping their defence tight.
Beath held onto their lead for the next ten minutes, but BBHS latched onto it after Beath hit the fence. BBHS made a wide pass downfield and took advantage of their possession to keep the ball in their midst for the next five minutes.
Beath HS, however, got back in the game after sneakily intercepting one of BBHS's attacks and just managing to get a goal from the left back of the field.
Twenty-three minutes in, BBHS regained possession with a fantastic slide tackle from Jake Maccabe. He struck it downfield to Ross Falconer who went in for a goal, but narrowly missed. A great attempt none the less.
Three minutes later, BBHS deflected Beath's attacks whilst driving the ball back downfield and Callum Houston latched onto a wide pass and fired the ball into the net bringing the score up to 1-1.
This goal motivated Beath even more as they furiously tried to get in another goal, but they just couldn't penetrate BBHS goalkeeper Robbie Wisharts defence as he delivered a great save.
Two minutes later, Beath played the ball offside granting BBHS another chance to score which they took full advantage of when Matthew Porteous scored a fantastic goal bring the score up to 2-1.
With half time only around twenty minutes away, both teams were fighting for the lead. Louis Appere locked onto the ball and made his way for Beath's goal, but they weren't having any of it and kept their defence tight deflecting BBHS's attack. 2 minutes later, Jack Jones went in for another try, but Beath still managed to keep BBHS from scoring.
