After a “really tough” 2-2 draw between the unbeaten teams at full time, they went into five minutes of extra time, with Southside just managing to get up in the last minute-and-a-half.

Master of ceremonies Andrew Stuart said it could have gone either way, with very good saves from both goalkeepers.
