A very close, taut affair ended with Bonnyrigg Rose Colts beating Tynecastle, after extra time, to lift the South East Region Cup.
Tynie took an early lead through a Josh Winnik header but Bonnyrigg fought back well and had enough chances to win in 90 minutes, although it took until the 49th minute for them to equalise.
Jack Solway and Arran Laidlaw were big players for them on the day and the two combined to set up Calum Glen to level with another header.
Winnik’s opener, coming in the 7th minute, was the first action of note after a tense and scrappy beginning to the match. The centre back rose to meet James Scobie’s corner to clinch a dream start.
Solway made some surging runs from his advanced central midfield position but did not find a way to goal.
In fact it was the men in maroon who threatened again through Scobie. He smacked a free kick, from 35 yards, but Mackenzie Watson matched it.
Rose stepped it up near half time and had two chances. An exchange of passes between Ryan Hodge and Jack Solway presented William Scott with a slight sight of goal. He was quite wide though and he could not get his shot on target.
Laidlaw’s pace saw him make headway down the right several times. On one such occasion he won a free kick, which he took himself and picked out Solway, but he headed over.
At the other end, Kieran Ngwenya fired in a teasing cross but there were no takers.
