We got our first league win of the season at Ainslie Park last Friday evening as we continued our unbeaten run against Hearts B.

We dominated the opening 45 minutes with home keeper Liam McFarlane who denied Jamie Docherty, Lucas Berry in the early stages.

He was however beaten with 28 minutes gone when Josh JACK got on the end of a Matty McDonald corner to send a glancing header into the net.

The Lochgelly based keeper then tipped a Zac Butterworth shot over the bar while Jack seeing the keeper off his line launched a shot from the centre circle which crashed off the underside of the crossbar.

However, with a few minutes to go to the break Hearts got an equaliser when a James Wilson cross was tapped home at the back post by Bailey DALL.

The winning goal came seven minutes into the second half when McFarlane clattered Lucas Berry in the box and Jamie DOCHERTY sent him the wrong way from the penalty spot.

With 69 minutes gone the keeper managed to get a foot on a Berry shot to divert it for a corner and minutes later he held a Jack shot.

As the game entered the closing stages McFarlane parried a Docherty free kick while in stoppage time Hepburn blocked a close range shot from Makenzie Kirk.

Then in the dying seconds Rodden was red carded for an off the ball incident.
