The game got off to a flying start with Edinburgh taking the lead within ten seconds of kick off.  From kick off, the ball was played to Steven Aitken on the left wing who drove into the area where he finished well passed the Bonnyton keeper.
After their shock start Bonnyton picked up their game and began to control possession but could not create many chances for themselves.  Edinburgh could not create many chances when they had the ball either meaning the half finished at 1-0 to the visitors.
Half Time: Bonnyton Thistle Under 21s 0-1 Edinburgh City Under 21s
The second half was controlled by Bonnyton who had most of the possession but were not able to create any chances.
Edinburgh were slightly better in possession with a few half chances being created but for the majority of the half they were defending.
Bonnyton continued to look for the goal that would force a replay and they found it in the final minute.  A long ball was played into the area where the ball trickled into the net to give Bonnyton the goal they needed. 
Full Time: Bonnyton Thistle Under 21s 1-1 Edinburgh City Under 21s
