With two minutes to go in the first half another chance fell for Renfrewshire Schools – one-on-one with the keeper, excellent save and defender clears.
The start of the second half saw Perth Schools’ start strong with lots of possession in the opposition 22.
An error from a Perth defender through a misplaced pass across the D saw the ball land on a Renfrewshire stick, and forced the keeper into another great save.
