Hutchison Vale managed to come from behind to defeat Edinburgh South in a closely-contested tie in the SERYFA Jewel Miners Cup. 
Hutchie did well to come back from a 2-1 deficit at half time to eventually triumph 5-2, assuring their place in the next round of the Jewel Miners Cup.
The first half was packed full of action with both teams playing well and it took just two minutes for the deadlock to be broken when Hutchie drove down the line and forced a save from Darcy Munro. South went on to clear the ball but it could only reach James Clare who hit it over Munro into the roof of the net from 20 yards out.
Although Edinburgh South had lost an early goal their heads did not go down and resumed play looking fierce. It was only four minutes later until they found an equaliser when Hutchie 'keeper Dean Brownlee tried clearing the ball only for it to rebound off Rory Harrison and fall to Artur Ziebarth who easily placed his shot into the bottom left corner.
The next 20 minutes were less eventful than the first few, however both teams had glimpses of goal but were denied by good saves from both Brownlee and Munro. This all changed in the 24th minute when Brownlee's clearance fell to Louis Conlon 30 yards out who fired into the top corner to give Edinburgh South the lead.
Hutchie were much more threatening towards the end of the half and were close to scoring after having a couple of chances. Fortunately for Edinburgh South they held on for the half time whistle.

Hutchies team talk worked wonders as three minutes after the start of the first half Bryan Mwangi took on two players on the left side and hit a shot into the bottom right corner. Munro was close to saving the shot but couldn't keep the ball out of the net.
Vale had another chance as Rayan Mohammed got himself on the end of a through ball and secured a one on one with Darcy Munro. As Mohammed took his shot, Munro made a spectacular save, stopping the ball going in to the bottom corner and keeping the score level.
Conlon did well to gather the ball and race the length of the pitch to put a cross in which resulted in a Edinburgh South corner. From the corner Hutchie were able to clear the ball to Blair McKenzie who drove into Edinburgh Souths box where he went down.
The referee called for a penalty to the disbelief of Edinburgh South players and fans alike. The official stuck with his decision and Hutchies Zane Russell stepped up to take the pen but could only hit the bar keeping the game level.
Hutchie were able to redeem themselves from this penalty miss five minutes later when Mason Renton received the ball on the right side of the pitch with plenty of space. He saw Munro was off his line and hit the ball which bounced off the crossbar, then onto the keepers back and into the net to give Hutchie the goal that their play deserved.
This caused Edinburgh South to drop their heads and both Mwangi and Clare added a goal each to see off the tie.

Magic Moment
Hutchison Vale
Edinburgh South
The best moment for Hutchie was without a doubt the opener from Clare who expertly shot the ball from the edge of the box into the top corner to start off the scoring.
The best moment for the away team had to be Munro's reaction save into the bottom corner early on in the second half to stop Mohammed from giving Hutchie the lead
