It was the Keirs Park men who took an early lead in the third minute as ADAMSON raced onto a long pass and outpaced Williams to place a shot past Cordery which the keeper got hands to but failed to stop the ball nestling in the corner of the net. Both teams had chances with the game opening up and the woodwork thwarted the home side on more than one occasion before MCINTOSH  grabbed the equaliser on the stroke of half time as a Baptie corner evaded everyone for the striker to bundle home at the back post. Half Time – Penicuik 1 HOB 1 The home side started the second half looking to get in front and a superb Baptie cross was glanced wide of the target by Jones before play switched to the other end and as the home defence ball watched from a free kick Michael WATT slid in to force the ball over the line. Manager Harvey went for bust on the hour mark as last weeks hat trick hero Salazar and Kateleza replaced Jones and McIntosh. The bold move backfired as Salazar saw red for violent conduct within two minutes and the home side faced an even more uphill task. The visitors put the tie to bed in 73 minutes as PATRICK headed home from close range and the game finished with another red card as Reid’s high lunge on Cordery saw him head down the tunnel a minute early! FT Penicuik 1- HOB 3
