Seniors snatch draw with late equaliser

Posted on Tuesday, April 26th, 2011

The Seniors drew 1 – 1 with Tynecastle tonight with a Ross Archibald equaliser in the 89th minute, his 21st of the season.
Mark Burns came into the starting line up for the first time in a competitive game for three years and there were also starts for David Etale, Jordan Finnie and Chris Smith. Chris Townsley and Kevin Sivewright were rested and left out of the 16. We started brightly and a great Chris Smith cross was headed against the post by Jack Beesley, Donal Henretty hitting the rebound against a defender on the line. Winger Aitken was looking lively for Tynecastle and he struck the bar with a great effort on the half hour mark. David had to go off with a recurrence of his hip injury just before the break, Andrew Sinclair coming on. The second half was again even, we had more possession but Tynecastle had as many chances. Gavin Malin and Andrew both had good efforts which went over and McIntosh put the ball wide from an acute angle. Just when a scoreless draw seemed on the cards McIntsoh put his side ahead with a drive from the edge of the box. We drove forward in search of an equaliser and an excellent through ball from Danny O’Donnell was slotted home by Ross from the penalty spot. The malt and Hops man of the match was Donal Henretty. Team: Flockhart, O’Donnell, Hoskins, Smith, Malin, Finnie (Mcleod 78), Beesley (Archibald 78), Henretty, Etale (Sinclair 43) Sub not used: Manson
Tomorrow evening (Wed) the Juniors travel to Stoneyburn in the league and the EoS 19s take on Gala Fairydean at the Academy in the last 8 of the Jimmy Lynch Memorial Cup with a 7.30 ko on the stadium pitch.
