Karl Somers was denied by a good block on 18 minutes after he was found by a delightful through ball by David Somers. On the half hour mark, Osborne produced a magnificent save with his feet from a Stephen Chambers strike. Five minutes before the break David Somers unleashed a powerful drive that went narrowly wide.

The Saints responded with plenty of possession, although chances on goal were restricted to strikes from distance. Killester doubled the advantage on 66 minutes Lennie McMillan slotted home after Osborne produced a good save. The Saints threw caution to the wind, David Somers was unlucky with a glancing header from a Marks delivery on 75 minutes.
