Penicuik's other Cup team in action last week saw Brian Bailey of Penicuik 2 combine with Krzystof Laszkiewicz from the Club's 4th Team and the fifth team's Luke Hennessey as they faced a tricky tie against Murrayfield 5 at Ladywood. In the race to 5, the home trio looked like their campaign in this year's competition was over as they lost four of the first 5 matches to trail 4-1. However, a fantastic comeback saw the home side win the next 3 matches to tie the game at 4-4 going into the deciding game of the night. Penicuik's four wins had been shared equally between 11 year old Luke Hennessey making his debut in the Handicap Cup and Krzystof Laszkiewicz playing for only the second time in the competition. The deciding game fell to be played by the more experienced Brian Bailey and having not contributed in the match to that point Brian was determined to make his experience count which he duly did as the home side recorded an excellent 5-4 comeback win which sees them also progress into the quarter final stage.
Penicuik's 3rd Team entered into the Competition play their last 16 match this week against a strong Corstorphine side.
