THREAVE Rovers’ under-17s held their nerve to take their third trophy of the season last week.
With the league title and Ryedale Cup already in the bag they defeated Heston Rovers in a tense penalty shootout at the David Keswick Centre in Dumfries on Friday night.
They had to come from behind to do so, Kieran McKie giving Heston a half-time lead as they looked to gain revenge on the side that pipped them to the league title.
But Threave improved after the break and sub Nathan Taylor drew the sides level with a shot from the edge of the box.
That led to extra-time and in the second period Taylor looked to have won it for Threave, racing onto Liam O’Shaughnessy’s pass before smacking a first time shot into the net.
But with just minutes remaining Bryce Wilson pounced to score and force spot-kicks.
Each side scored their first two before Threave’s Hugh McDavid saved Heston’s third.
The next three kicks were scored so it was Jamie Galloway who rattled in the decisive penalty to give Threave the trophy.
In the under-15s Dalbeattie Star have been enjoying some derby success in the last week, beating Threave Rovers 3-2 and St Cuthbert Wanderers 4-0.
In between they lost 4-3 at Annan Athletic.
