SWIFTS Edge Past Stanley in Extra Time Thriller to Reach Perthshire Cup Semi Finals

The Swifts embarked on a journey up the A9, seeking to secure their spot in another Semi Final by facing the over confident Stanley in the Perthshire Cup.

The first 35 minutes witnessed a deadlock, with both teams struggling to create opportunities on the challenging pitch. However, the game took a surprising turn when a long throw into the Jeanfield box was cleared to the feet of a Stanley player, his cross ended up leading to Stanley's unexpected opener as it found the top corner of the net.

Despite Jeanfield's relentless efforts for the remainder of the half to find the equaliser, they repeatedly squandered chances.

In the 50th minute, Jeanfield finally broke through the deadlock, capitalising on constant pressure as a well-delivered cross found B. Carle, who skillfully put the ball into the back of the net.

The momentum shifted further in Jeanfield's favor on the 71st minute when B. Potter's corner was met by A. Abboud's decisive header at the back post, giving Jeanfield the lead.

However, Stanley was handed a controversial penalty on the 79th minute, which was expertly saved by J. Welch, marking his third penalty save in two games. Yet, Stanley managed to equalise on the 81st minute, capitalising on a possible offside situation to beat Welch.

Jeanfield seemed poised to clinch victory on the 83rd minute when A. Abboud's cross found B. Carle, whose header found the net, much to the delight of the supporters.

Despite Jeanfield's late surge, Stanley clawed back on the 90th minute, as their keeper joined the attack for a corner, resulting in a frantic scramble in the box and eventually finding the equaliser.

In the 111th minute, Jeanfield sealed the victory as a poor clearance fell to the feet of B. Carle, who displayed composure amidst chaos, securing a perfect hat-trick with a clinical finish from close range.
