Gartcairn secured the treble as they overcame a nine-man Kirkfield United in the blistering sun at the Falkirk stadium.
The heat was definitely on for both sides as Kirkfield looked for revenge on Gartcairn having been beaten by them six days previous in the league cup final. Gartcairn were on the hunt for a domestic treble and two Craig Cummings goal inspired Gartcairn to do so.
It was a slow start to the game. Both teams trying to adapt to the conditions and making sure not to over exert themselves.
The only real chance fell to Jason Stevenson as he raced through one-on-one with Kirkfield Goalkeeper Tom Crawford. Gartcairn were first to score, Cummings getting the first of his brace in the 28th minute after some lovely build up play by Gartcairn put him through one on one with Crawford and he made no mistake in finding the net. Sam Anderson was desperate to level the score, making a fantastic box to box run, but he could only sting the palms of Drew Gorrie.
Kirkfield levelled just before the break. A corner from the left hand side caused havoc in the box and Gorrie couldn’t claim it, allowing Finlay Patrick to burst the empty net to give Kirkfield a huge boost going into the break.
