BSC Glasgow twice fought back from a goal down in Wednesday night’s game against Edinburgh University, but Peter Mair’s last minute finish consigned Craig Young’s side to a second consecutive defeat in the Lowland League.

Goals from Arnault Bembo and David Gray cancelled out two strikes from Jake Guthrie, but it was the pacy student who had the last laugh as he laid on an easy finish for substitute Mair to give the capital side all 3 points.

The opening half was an even affair, with neither side peppering the goal with chances. It took until the 39th minute for a clear cut chance to come, and Guthrie took it.

Stephen Bronsky cleared behind for a corner after the striker dribbled towards goal. The ball was swung in, and Guthrie found himself free at the back post to smash home off the post. It was cleared by a BSC defender, but referee Evan Cairns and his assistant declared it over the line.

Ryan Carnwrath got in behind his full back on the right hand side immediately from kick off and was felled inside the area, but Cairns did not blow his whistle and BSC went in at the break behind.

After an hour, Bembo got BSC back in the game with a superb volley on the turn, which smacked off the bar and in. However, the University side retook the lead with 15 minutes remaining.

Carnwrath conceded a free kick for handball on the left corner of the box. Fraser Paterson drilled it in, and after colliding off of multiple bodies in the area, Guthrie got the last touch to put his side back in the driver’s seat.

The striker, a constant thorn in the side all evening, made another chance but elected to cross when he had a chance to complete his hat trick and Bronsky cleared.

Aiden Ferris, on as a substitute, played in trialist Adam Hopes, who spun off Stuart McFarlane. The defender brought him down and this time the referee pointed to the spot. Gray stepped up and slotted it coolly into the top right corner.

The way the game was going it was always going to end with a game winner, and there was agony for BSC as it was the home side who took the lead for the third and final time.

Paterson drove forward, crossed from the right hand side and the ball made it to the back post. Guthrie calmly played in Mair who knocked it past Iain Stewart just before the full time whistle.

Young was upset with his side’s performance -
“Performance wasn’t good enough. Too many individual errors has cost us over the 90 minutes, lost another game in the 93rd minute which isn’t acceptable, we have to have better game management.”

“It was just that type of game from our point of view, we didn’t manage it well enough, didn’t make the right decisions, didn’t see the game out well towards the end.”

He also looked forward to Saturday against Edinburgh City and beyond –
“We need to find a way to win (on Saturday). We’ve got a few injuries and our squad is struggling a little bit right now, but we just need to regroup, see how the team is and find a way to get a result.”

“The cup draw against Auchinleck Talbot is a big boost for the whole club, it’s going to be a big tie, but we’ve got two massive games against Spartans and first of all Edinburgh City.”

BSC take on last year’s champions at 3pm at Lochburn Park. Two weeks from then, on the 26th, the club will play their first ever Scottish Cup tie against Talbot at home.

Team – Stewart, Bembo, Toner, Bronsky, Ramsay, Carnwrath, Gray, Cameron (O’Donnell 83), O’Hear, McDougall (Hope 70), Connolly (Ferris 66)
