The wind picked up in the second half, blowing towards the goal to where Syngenta were shooting. They had a chance right at the start of the half through Christopher Hamilton but the ball was cleared.
Mill didn't have a lot of chances in the second period, but one of the few was a cracking shot from Gerrard which hut the outside of the post and went for a goal kick.
The visitors were back on the attack, and a run from Ross Mackenzie won them a corner. It was swung in, and a strong header from Kieran Lewis was saved by Tweedlie. The ball would be played back to the Grangemouth team soon after, and a cross/shot from Munro hit the Mill bar. Syngenta would continue to press, and they got their reward for doing so. A ball into the box which wasn't cleared by the defence left Jordan Paterson with a one-on-one and he made no mistake by putting the ball into the bottom corner.
Murdoch and Farrel of Mill United played a good one-two pass to put Murdoch through on goal, but with a tight angle his shot was straight at Sean Brown. With the wind still in Syngenta's favour, the ball was sent up the park, and after some passing, the goalscorer found himself through again but his shot went by the post.
Syngenta were playing good football, and after a string of passes being put together, Jay McEwan was on the corner of the box. The goalkeeper came rushing out to him but the striker composed himself to chip the ball over him. A great finish which put the visitors in the lead.
About 10 minutes of the game reminded, and with Mill needing a goal, they went for it. Farrel stung the hands of Brown with a shot, but they were left exposed at the back when MacKenzie and another Syngenta player were through and after racing back, the defence of Mill got it cleared far up the park in which Syngenta were awarded a free-kick.
Probably everyone expected Greig Rad to get the ball as far down the park as possible with the free-kick, considering it was in the semi-circle of his own half. He played a long ball down which took one bounce and didn't find anyone's head, and it flew into the top corner of the goal. The Syngenta team were delighted and knew that they had a place in the semi-final now.
