In the second minute, a good run from Roger down the right found Gibbon but his shot went wide.

A couple of minutes later, a free kick played in by J. Dalgarno looked to be going to the head of MacLaren but the keeper came out to get a vital touch to the ball and send it away from danger.

In the 12th minute, S. Blease found himself in on goal but his shot came back off the post.

The home team did take the lead after 23 minutes. A corner from Rodger was played deep into the back post where Lee Paton was able to control and thump the ball into the roof of the net - 1-0.

On the half hour mark, Beedie crossed to Gibbon and the striker cleverly dummied it to Jack Rodger whose ferocious shot gave the keeper no chance - 2-0.
