Match Report

Although Girvan bowed out of the Scottish Cup overall they gave a good display and with a bit of luck could have forced a replay against a strong Penicuik side.

Penicuik opened strongly and created the first chance after fifteen minutes when Ross Montgomery brought the best out af Scott Johnston who made a fine save.

Next minute a header by Penicuik’s Keith Lough was cleared off the line. Michael Reilly should have put Girvan in front on the twentieth minute when he was set up by Robert Paterson but he shot wide of an empty goal.Play switched to the other end an Scott Johnston saved a header from Ryan McCallum to keep the sides level.
Nine minutes from the interval Girvan went ahead with a fine goal the ball was cleared out to Steven Auld and he hit a left foot screamer that flew past Andrew Jack. Two minutes after the interval Girvan were dealt a blow when Steven Auld
had to go off to be replace by Craig Reid.

Before the defence had sorted itself out Penicuik equalised a ball to the back post was knocked back in and Calum Connolly netted. Five minutes later Girvan almost went ahead again but Jack McDowall after beating two men saw his shot blocked for a corner.

Penicuik went ahead on the hour mark a corner from Neil Yancyzk was not cleared and Craig Hume shot the loose ball into the net.Ten minutes later Penicuik added a third goal following a defensive mistake and Keith Lough ws on hand to score.
