Seven days is a long time in football and after almost scoring at will against non-leaguers Vale of Leithen we were unable to breakdown a stubborn Sons defence who held out to ensure that the division’s bottom side recorded their first league success of the campaign.
There were two changes to the side which had beaten Vale of Leithen with Thomas Flynn and David Cowan both returning to the starting line up with Craig Wight and Dean Brett dropping to the bench.
The first real chance of the afternoon came in four minutes when Agnew sent off a swirling cross which deceived Flynn and drifted inches past his far post.
Minutes later McDougall was allowed a clear run into the Cowden box and his low shot was held by Flynn, and seconds later Graham headed just over from a corner.
In 19 minutes as the Sons pressed to break the deadlock Lister headed just over while at the other end Coult had the ball in the net but was judged to be offside when he picked up Saperas’ pass.
Soon after a cross from Adamson was brought down by Coult and he had space but his shot was closed down by McNiff and he was able to take the pace off the ball and keeper Ewings safely gathered.
With 28 minutes gone the Sons got what proved to be the winner when McDougall fired in a 20 yard shot which was defected clear and Mark Gilhaney following up shot home from 19 yards.
Seconds later we should have bagged an equaliser when an Armstrong cross went across the face of the visitor’s goal but Coult failed to connect.
As the first half came to a close Lister fired in a low shot which was gathered by Flynn while Coult was denied by the diving Ewings and right on the whistle McKenzie set up Coult but his low shot was once again stopped by the keeper.
The second half opened with Stewart latching onto a Ramsay pass but Ewings bravely dived at his feet to mop up the danger.
Eleven minutes in Ewings once again denied Coult saving his shot from 12 yards.
At the other end Agnew sent in a 25 yard free kick which went narrowly past our right hand post.
With 66 minutes gone the Sons could have doubled their advantage when Mbu brought down Devlin but for his second successive game Flynn dived to deny Prunty and then Gilhany’s follow up shot.
As we pressed for an equaliser Ewings saved a 30 yard free kick from Stevenson and soon after the keeper had a finger- tip save from a similar award 25 yards out.
As the game wound down McKenzie got clear on the right hand side but his shot was deflected by McNiff at the expense of a corner.
