Tryst Edge to Scottish Cup Victory

TRYST secured the Scottish Cup in style on Saturday, beating rivals Gracemount 33-29 after a thrilling day of handball.

The league leaders are on track to do the double after beating Gracemount in the Cup final, but they were made to battle all the way for victory.

The match was close throughout, but towards the end both sides found themselves a man down and it was Tryst who adapted better to clinch the win.

In the women’s final Glasgow overwhelmed Gracemount 32-13 to secure victory over an Edinburgh side which was missing a couple of key players.

Earlier in the day East Kilbride beat Ayr 16-13 in the Under-16 boys final, with their experience proving key, while Livingston battled back from a four-goal deficit at half time in the Under-16 girls final to beat East Kilbride 18-13.

A stronger squad proved the difference for East Kilbride, who beat an under-strength Livingston team 32-19 in the Under-14 final, while East Kilbride came out on top after a well-fought five-team mini tournament for the Under-12s, narrowly beating Gracemount in the final.
