Match Report

Sadly there was to be no revenge for our Cup final defeat. For the best part of an hour we were in control, but Saints two goal burst extinguished any hopes we had of taking even a point. With Kevin Gallacher looking lively most of the first half action took place in Saints half, but attempts on goal were sparse. Kevin Gallacher hit a 20 yarder which Campbell Money held only at full stretch. Kevin then scampered down the left and crossed to the far post where lain Ferguson got his foot to the ball but couldn't direct his effort on target. A couple more shots from Kevin Gallacher were blocked before Saints, at last, mounted a couple of attacks.

The second half opened quietly, but midway through the period Saints forced a series of corners. McWhirter's kick found Kenny McDowell's head and he nodded in from close range after 67 minutes. The killer blow came 13 minutes later. The ball was played in from the right and broke to Ian Cameron, who volleyed fiercely past Billy Thomson.
