Match Report

Harry Michie opened the scoring for United with a beautiful lob to defy Garth in goal for the home side, but moments later Phil Weir nipped in ahead of McClure to level. Weir scored again to give the Bayview men the lead as East Fife looked to be taking control, but a goal from Johnny Hart made it 2-2. East Fife again took the lead through Duncan and before long Weir had netted his hat-trick to put his team comfortably ahead. Undeterred, United fought back, and Johnny Hart scored again to reduce the deficit before Michie netted his second to equalise.

Both clubs battled hard for the winning goal, and on more than one occasion, East Fife looked close to grabbing it. Harry McGregor in the United goal, though, stood firm and in the last minute of the game, Geordie Henderson crossed for Duncan Hutchison to do the necessary and win the game for United.
