Ross high battled back from behind to triumph over Royal High in extra time and lift the Edinburgh Secondary Schools FA cup at Meggetland.
In the initial phases, the game was played at a high tempo and both sides were looking to create chances with Athan Barry going close for Royal High, and soon after Tyler Pryde almost latched onto a ball over the top.
Esosa Osemwegie had a crack from distance but he cut across the ball and sliced off target, and Lennon Garrick had a couple of attempts from wide right; the first was blocked and the second dribbled of target.
Barry nicked the ball from the toes of a defender but couldn’t pull the trigger in time as Lennon Rafferty raced back to put him off. Soon after, the Tranent side began to build their own spell of pressure.
Mackenzie Scott had a few chances, the latter of which he lashed over the crossbar from the edge of the area. Pryde managed to get in behind on 25 minutes but Jack Roy was down well to turn behind.
As Ross continuted to turn the screw, the next chance fell to Callum Anderson, but he couldn’t connect to Pryde’s cross from close range.
The final chance of the half fell to Barry, who was slipped in by Gregor Fordyce, but the attacker couldn’t prod the ball beyond the onrushing goalkeeper, as the sides went into the break, goalless.
