Youth League by Ricky Irving

Lochar Thistle under 15’s made it through to the final of the league cup thanks to a fantastic comeback against Galloway Thistle.

Galloway controlled the first half with a hat trick from Robert Hughan and a fantastic free kick from Samuel Mactier gave them the advantage, though Lochar did counter thanks to a great right footed effort from Oliver Walker. Lochar probed to find their way back into the game after the restart and when Tommy Muir was pulled down in the box he dusted himself off to reduce the arrears. Lochar then made a tactical change and this paid off when McCaulay McQueen scored a double to level the match. The impetus was with Lochar and it was man of the match Oliver Walker who scored the winner, and was unlucky not to get his hat trick at the end as he saw his header flash just wide of the post.

The Under 13 Final will be played at Castle Douglas on Thursday night, and will feature Galloway Thistle and Heston Rovers. Thistle earned their final spot as they edged out Loch Ryan in a nine goal thriller while Heston Rovers earned their passage with a two nil victory at Dalbeattie Star.
