Half time - Stonehaven Ladies FC 0 - 0 Forfar Farmington Ladies FC
Stonehaven started the second half with purpose, knowing they had to up their game if they wanted to take all three points.
Stoney took the lead after a through-ball from Gauld in midfield was picked up by Taylor who raced on it and curled the ball passed the Forfar keeper. Forfar kept pressing forward looking for an equalizer.
Stonehaven then settled some nerves by getting their second of the match, Gauld breaking forward from midfield with a great finish.
