Davy at the double as EOS side reach League Cup Semi

Posted on Monday, December 8th, 2014

Following on from last week’s excellent result 5-3 win against league leaders Leith the Spartans EOS side took on the high flying Tynecastle FC at Fernieside on Saturday. Davy Stewart who has been in great form recently, scored another 2 goals but it was the all-round performance of the side that was the most pleasing aspect of the day for Manager Alex Cunningham.

On a very heavy pitch with the wind blowing straight down the park it was certainly a proverbial game of two halves.

Spartans went 1-0 up in 33mins when Davy Stewart unleashed a 20 yard strike that nestled in the bottom right hand corner of the net, then with five minutes to go before the interval, the same player scored directly from a corner kick to put his side 0-2 up at half-time.

Murray Jackson had to look lively shortly after the teams returned from the welcoming shelter of the sheds and he was forced into making a great save from a long range Tynecastle effort.

However with only 8mins of the second half gone, Jackson looked like he had a route one ‘Garry Owen’ hoof up the park from Tynecastle covered, but somehow the ball found it’s way into the Spartans net.

Despite the potential comeback due to the early goal, Spartans dug deep and defended well whilst still continuing to be a threat on the break.

With no further scoring on what was definitely a braw drying day for neighbouring clothes lines, the Referee brought proceedings to an end as the Spartans progressed on the road to silverware.
