In a thrilling SYFA Youth Cup tie, it was Longniddry Villa FC who came out on top after beating Mossend FC 5-1 to reach the last 16.
It was an eventual first half and Longniddry managed to score first after just a couple of minutes of play. The ball was played into the feet of James Malcolm who managed to slip Alex Williamson through, who then slotted it past the 'keeper.
After the goal both teams had spells of nice flowing football but they both couldn't quite find the back of the net.
Despite Mossend having a series of free kicks in the Longniddry half, they couldn't quite find the equaliser. For the home side, this was thanks to a number of good saves from 'keeper, Cameron Sandilands and they managed to hold onto their one goal load.
The visitors were made to pay as Longniddry doubled their lead. A ball over the Mossend defence resulted in a mistake that put Alex Williamson through. He then managed to pass the ball into the path of James Malcolm, who tjem chipped the ball over the helpless Adam Brown.
The two goal deficit though didn't bother Mossend as they continued to play good passing football, but Longniddry were also looking sharp and continued to press to try and find their third goal. It almost arrived when they played the ball down the right hand side from a good pass by Kieron Stevenson who found Ellis Grieve. He then managed to pull the ball back into the path of Williamson, but he fired over the bar.
The third goal did eventually arrive as moments later Longniddry won themselves a penalty. Jack McAlpine was fouled in the box and took the penalty, firing his effort into the back of the net.
Mossend continued to battle away and almost pulled one back. A free kick was taken by Roan Finn, who found the back post with his delivery but the ball was headed out for a goal kick by his teammate.
Unfortunately for the visitors, they were further behind. The ball was played through to Williamson, who had his initial shot saved well by Brown, but the 'keeper could only parry the ball it into the path of Malcolm who tapped home to make it four.
The home side added to their lead before the half was over from a corner. Kieron Douglas whipped the ball in and it was unfortunately headed into the net by a Mossend player to add to Longniddry's lead.
Despite the scoreline, Mossend continued to play their way and were rewarded with a goal before the half time whistle. A clever ball over the top found Adam Morrison who then played the ball into Jack Gibson. He proceeded to chip the Longniddry keeper wonderfully and to get his side off the mark.
