Fife Cup Semi Final
Manager Colin Nish opted to give youth a chance in last Saturday’s Fife Cup semi -final at Bayview with his Methil counterpart Gary Naismith fielding a more experienced side.
Cowden’s first chance of the afternoon came with nine minutes gone when Luke Armstrong went on a good run but his shot was cleared off the line by Naismith.
Six minutes later MacDonald sent a cross into the visitor’s box but Smith’s header was knocked away by Hunter at the expense of a corner.
Minutes later Kerr sent a shot just wide of the post while Austin had a close range effort blocked by Hunter following a corner.
Austin then sent a 20 yard shot wide before Hunter had to be alert tipping a Smith shot over the bar.
Just after the half hour Brett broke into the home box but his progress was blocked by keeper McGovern, with the Cowden man taking a knock which saw him fail to appear for the second half.
Nine minutes from the break player/manager Naismith once again came to his sides rescue when he stopped a Muirhead shot on the line.
The only goal of the afternoon came in 42 minutes when a corner flew over Hunter and Kevin SMITH headed home at the back post.
Five minutes into the second half the Methil side had a great opportunity to go two up when Austin sent the ball across the face of the Cowden goal but Brown failed to connect at the back post
At the other end Luke Armstrong broke into the home box but his progress was blocked by Page.
Minutes later the Cowden frontman sent in a 20 yard shot which was parried by McGovern while just after the hour a Murray cross was intercepted by Hunter with Jones ready to pounce.
With ten minutes to go Orritt fired in a 25 yard shot which was turned around the post by the diving McGovern and a minute later the Methil side almost sealed their win when Brown fired a shot from the edge of the box off the crossbar.
As the clock wound down Johnston sent a shot just wide of the home goal after good work from Pearson as the Central Parkers Fife Cup campaign came to an end.
