After a goalless first half the goal that was certainly becoming more likely duly happened in 57 minutes. Running on to a hefty Lee Ashcroft ball, Greg Kiltie beat Scott Mercer on the left to send in a right footed cross that Ryan DOW met on the edge of the box. He beat off the challenge of Darren Pybus and Lee Kilday and despite Kevin Holt’s efforts on the goal line the Pars were ahead. 1-0

Kevin NISBET doubled the advantage in 82 minutes, running on to a Kyle Turner pass up the left touchline, evaded the challenge of Kilday to cut in from the left edge of the box, denied Semple and crashed the ball past Robby McCrorie. 2-0
