A thrilling contest, which either side will have felt they could have won, ended in Hutcheson and Cavalry Park both coming away with a point.
Hutchison Vale got off to the perfect start, with Daniel Beveridge finding some space on the left wing, before crossing in for Brandon Hunter to smash home from around 15 yards out. His finish found the top left corner, not giving the goalkeeper a chance.
 
The early goal had an almost electric effect on Cavalry Park, who came alive. They had several set piece opportunities, including a free kick and two corners in very quick succession.
 
None of these came to anything, all being cleared, but Cavalry Park kept at it.
 
The ball was played forward, and out towards the left, in much the same manner as Hutchison’s earlier goal, where Owen Ranton hared after it, trying desperately to stop the ball from going out of play. He just flicked it back in time, but the ball fell to Hutchison defender.
 
Undeterred, Ranton tackled him, winning the ball, and suddenly finding himself with nothing between him and the goalkeeper but 30 yards of 3G turf. This he rapidly set about closing down, before unselfishly attempting to pass across towards Charles McKinnon.
 
A Hutchison defender managed to get a foot on it, but succeeded only in pushing the ball past keeper William Miller, and straight into the path of Ranton, who gratefully tucked home from a tight angle into the empty net.
 
Some might call it a little lucky, but he certainly had earned it. 1-1. Cavalry Park’s good spell carried on, and McKinnon could have put them ahead when he stole possession from Jamie Crawford, but the ball bounced unkindly for him, and Miller was able to gather.
 
Through this period, Hutcheson had been giving away free kicks away repeatedly, and Cavalry Park were about make them pay for it. From one of these, around about 25 yards from goal, Ranton had the goal in his sights. He ran up, striking the ball right-footed, around the wall, and straight into the diving Miller’s top left corner. It was a great strike, and served to illustrate just how quickly football games can turn.
 
A few minutes ago, Cavalry Park had been left reeling by the early goal, but had turned things around and they now led, with Ranton helping himself to a fantastic brace in the process.
 
Not long after, Ranton almost got his hat trick, again escaping down the left, this time electing to shoot. The prodded effort from close range was goal bound, but Miller intervened and batted it away.
 
However, the game swung once more, with Hutchison coming right back into it. Hunter headed over from another cross, James Gordon saw a slightly speculative right-foot effort from the right hand corner of the penalty area just beat the far post.
 
With the shots on goal piling up, there was bound to be at least one rewarded. And, just past the half hour mark, Beveridge slotted home with a well-hit right footed
shot to the goalkeeper’s right. The match was level once more, and, on balance, it was probably fair to both sides.
 
No longer in front, Cavalry Park were determined to restore their advantage. Ranton had another chance for his hat trick a short while later, but Miller denied him again with another crucial save. Conan Murle had a free kick shot from some distance turned behind for a corner by Miller.
 
Hutchison came within inches of taking the lead again when a cross from Gordon made its way through to Beveridge, who hit the crossbar with his powerful strike. Two minutes later, the referee put an end to a enthralling half, in which both teams had had periods of dominance, with both sides providing a high-quality, very gripping contest.
  • Half Time:
  • Cavalry Park
  • 2-2
  • Hutchison Vale
Like with the first half, Hutchison began well, winning a corner inside two minutes of kick-off, but Cavalry Park goalkeeper Dean Beveridge was able to gather comfortably. Cavalry Park’s Sam Gormley had an opportunity to put a free kick in to a dangerous area in the box, but Gordon was able to clear for Hutchison.
 
Ranton maintained his heavy involvement in the game, always providing Cavalry Park with an attacking outlet, and he had another opportunity for that elusive hat trick when he took on a shot from the edge of the area, but sent it just over the bar.
 
Cavalry Park would not stop trying, however, and McKinnon almost succeeded in trying to play in McIntosh, and the ball was cleared as far as Ranton on the left, who won a free kick, which he took himself, but the ball was headed behind for a corner, which was also cleared for yet another corner, but this one was properly dealt with, and the pressure lifted.
 
Up at the other end, Brian Lloyd played the ball out to Gordon, who crossed to Hunter, but he blazed over at the back post. Hutcheson continued their bad habit of conceding free kicks in dangerous areas, and Ranton had another chance from one somewhat left-of-centre and just outside the penalty area, but his floating effort had just a little too much weight on it, and sailed slightly wide of the far post.
 
Beveridge had a free kick in a similar position, but chose to cross, and the ball was headed away by Andrew Bulloch. Both Brodie McNab and Fletcher Hendry, for Hutcheson, saw long distance strikes head high and wide, and nowhere near the goal, most importantly.
 
At about 15 minutes in to the second half Gordon had the best chance of the half so far for Hutchison, when he found some space, but saw his shot beaten away…  straight back into Gordon’s path, who again shot, but this was also saved, being tipped around the post by goalkeeper Beveridge.
 
As the game progressed, Hutcheson’s effort seemed to be becoming more and more speculative, although they probably had the majority of the possession, they had difficulty creating clear-cut opportunities, the width they had utilised so extensively in the first half gradually disappearing, as players tired late on.
 
To their credit, though, they never gave up hope of winning, still committing to every tackle late into the game. A free kick in a similar position to Ranton’s earlier strike, hit the wall, Hunter shot from distance but well wide once more.
 
The pace of the game had slowed somewhat by this point, the most threatening chances for both sides coming from the odd set piece, a couple of free kicks for Cavalry Park that ultimately came to nothing, a corner for Hutcheson that was cleared.
 
The defences for both teams remained resolute, whenever anyone on either side looked likely to shoot, they were immediately closed down, and the shot usually blocked. On the occasions when one did get through, it was often high and wide, and the goalkeepers of the respective sides generally had no problem with the remainder that were actually on target.
 
When the full time whistle went, neither side can have felt too aggrieved at the scoreline, although both had reason several missed chances and moments that might have been.

Star Player
Cavalry Park
Hutchison Vale
It has to be Owen Ranton. Two magnificent goals kept his team in the game and he was an outlet for Cavalry Park's defenders, using his speed to chase down any ball hoofed up field. This was vital for Cavalry Park in the late stages, as it gave the defence a chance for a breather, and set up multiple chances for them to win the match.
Daniel Beveridge was a constant threat on the wing, creating space for the midfield to operate in, and getting away from his markers on several occasions, putting some splendid crosses in. His partnership with Hunter proved a deadly combination.
Magic Moment
Cavalry Park
Hutchison Vale
Ranton's great free kick from the top of the 'd.' Perfectly struck, it sailed straight into the top corner with considerable pace on it, giving the 'keeper no chance whatsoever. There was a lot of pressure on the kick, given that it put Cavalry Park ahead, albeit for a very short time.
Hutchie got off to a terrific start, their early goal shocking Cavalry Park. It came from what was a very common method of creating chances for them. A high, long ball out towards the left, where Beveridge made some space for himself, and crossed for Hunter to sweep in. It was a fantastic counter-attack, with the whole move taking only around 10 seconds, which made the game the great contest it was.
