A goal either side of the interval was enough for Haddington Athletic to see off Penicuik Athletic and lift the Polar Foods Cup at Millfield.
Luke Cowan opened the scoring on 30 minutes before Leo Harrison doubled the lead six minutes after the break. Ben McManus netted with five minutes to go; but it was too little too late.
The game started in a lively fashion, with Penicuik winning a couple of corners and Haddington threatening on the break with the ball in behind the back four, with early chances falling to Jackson Marrins and Harrison respectively.
Owen Terris tested Ben McIntosh with a long range effort before Harrison once again found himself in on goal, only to be judged offside after rounding the Penicuik keeper.
Penicuik’s first big chance came through McManus. The striker found a yard in the box as the ball sat up kindly to him, but Cameron Bell was equal to it as the shotstopper knocked the ball away to his left.
Luke Cowan fired in a dangerous looking freekick in from the left wing which goalkeeper, McIntosh parried away.
Just moments later, Haddington would win a freekick on the opposite side. This time Cowan made no mistake with the dead ball as he looped the strike over the keeper and into the far corner.
This time it was Penicuik’s turn to try their luck from a set piece. Rory Scott struck the ball extremely sweetly and although it was heading goal-wards; it arrowed straight into the palms of Bell.
A goal worthy of the occasion was the difference between the sides as they went in with Haddington one goal to the good.
