St Cuthbert Wanderers v Stranraer, match postponed

A great result was recorded by Newton Stewart who beat league favourites Dalbeattie Star 2-1 to reach the final of the Tweedie Cup next Monday, when the Creesiders will play Threave Rovers at Meadow Park.

The visitors took the game to Star right from the start and after five minutes a tremendous crossfield pass from Jonathon Hill found Fyfe wide on the right and his fine delivery found the head of Johnny Fisher to nod his side into an early lead.

Star equalised in the 24th minute following a goalmouth scramble from a corner on the right with Stuart McPherson claiming the last touch as the ball bobbled behind keeper Harry Fidler.

In the second half Star turned the screw but some great defending, along with the help of the woodwork, kept the home side at bay with the visitors being rewarded in time added on for their endeavours and positive attitude.

Fisher won a free kick on the edge of the box on the left and, when the ball was floated over to the far post, Robert Paisley, with his back to goal, turned well to fire the ball into the net with his left foot from 12 yards and send the Creesiders into their first cup final for some time.

Threave Rovers will play host to the final at Meadow Park after beating Wigtown and Bladnoch 4-2 following a penalty shoot-out after drawing the match 1-1 at 90 minutes.
