In the 6 th  minute, Penicuik had a chance to double their lead when Hay broke through the midfield. Had he laid the pass off to his left Killin would have slotted home, be opted to shoot and dragged his effort wide of the post. At the other end Foster was well held off by Hay, allowing Bald to come out and gather. Immediately afterwards, a great diagonal pass by Gay picked out Harvey, however his first time volley went high and wide of the goal. In the 20 th  minute with Penicuik piling on the pressure, Harvey wriggled past three defenders on the by line but was dispossessed at the last second. Six minutes later, a neat one two between Hay and Montgomery saw Hay's cross desperately cleared. On the half hour a break through the middle saw Harvey set up Gay, but he twice failed to get his crosses into the danger area. Then Montgomery skipped past three defenders only to cross the ball straight into Rachowski'd arms. Minutes later, Coult had a strike on goal but it was well covered by Bald. In their next attack, Bald again saved from Coult who was showing strength and pace, causing the Penicuik defence some anxious moments. In the 36 th  minute a Gay free kick went narrowly past the post. From the goal kick Morris tested Bald with a powerful strike that the keeper turned round the post. Half Time: Penicuik 1 Arniston 0 Five minutes into the half, and a pass from Gay set up Harvey, but his strike went wide of the keeper's right hand post. Arniston equalised in the 58 th  minute with a quick break from defence, and amid claims for offside, NICHOLSON charged in on goal and slotted the ball past Bald. Arniston took encouragement from the goal and moved up a gear. Their passing was quick and accurate but they were unable to convert this into more goals. Penicuik gradually got control of the game again, and in the 70th minute they a strong claim for a penalty when a cross was handled in the box. However, referee Marini was unsighted and play carried on. The ball was partially cleared and returned into the box where Robertson sliced his shot wide of the target. Three minutes later Arniston took the lead when, in a quick break from defence, COULT out paced the Penicuik defence to drive the ball under the diving Bald. In the 80 th  minute Harvey was inches away from heading home a Montgomery cross. Penicuik were again piling on the pressure, and keeper Rachowski had to punch the ball clear under pressure. Five minutes later, Rachowski got down well to save a Harvey header that was heading for the bottom corner of the net. Arniston probably merited the three points simply because they took their chances when they arose, whereas Penicuik scorned a number of opportunities to seal the game particularly in the first half 07.08.10 South League Cup Penicuik 1 Arniston 2
