Burntisland Shipyard overcame Townhill FC in a tight League Cup final at Warout Stadium in Glenrothes. A wonder goal from Mackenzie Roe was not enough for Townhill, as goals from David Doig and Regan Lumsden gave Burntisland victory in what was a very evenly contested match.
It was a nightmare start for Townhill as they fell behind inside the first five minutes. A long throw into the box was only half headed clear, and a lurking Doig caught as sweet a volley as you will ever see to send the ball crashing into the top corner.
Townhill were quick to respond though, and when Aaron Baxter cut inside his man he unleashed a wicked right-footed shot that fizzed narrowly wide of the post.
Burntisland were not sitting back on their lead however, and Luke Thompson had a chance to double the advantage when he rose highest to meet a corner, but his effort was headed onto the bar by the defender on the line.
Some neat play between Baxter and Ben McCann almost found the former through on goal, but his first touch was heavy and the ball ran away from him. McCann then had another chance with a shot from the edge of the area, but he was unable to direct the ball on target.
After a poor start Townhill were now finding some rhythm, and after a Gregor Macdonald corner was cleared, the wide man was able to swing the ball back in to find McCann unmarked in the middle, but this time the header was high and over the bar.
Alex Chingwalu was next to try his luck at levelling the scores, but after showing some good skill to beat his man, his shot was dragged wide as Townhill continued to press.
A rare foray forward for Burntisland almost ended with a chance but Owain Stark in the Townhill goal was able to collect the ball with relative ease after Robbie Hogg's cross.
It was on the counterattack that Burntisland looked most dangerous, and when Cameron Clarke beat the offside trap to race clear he looked certain to score, but after a poor first touch Stark was able to rush off his line and gather the ball.
As Townhill continued to hunt for an equaliser there were two shots at goal in quick succession, first from Joe Dawson who took aim with a right-footed shot that sailed over the crossbar, and then from Chingwalu who aimed his effort straight at Scott Costello in the Burntisland goal.
Macdonald then had a pop after beating two men with some quick feet, but he also saw his shot evade both Costello and the crossbar.
Burntisland then found themselves with a chance to double their advantage from a set piece, but there was no curl on the ball and it went harmlessly wide.
Marc Perin played a good ball to release Baxter through on goal, but despite beating Costello to the ball he could only slide his right-footed shot agonisingly wide of the post.
Both sides continued to trade chances, and Clarke was next to have a pop with a left-footed shot after cutting in from the right wing, but again the goalkeeper was not troubled as the ball whistled past the post.
There was just enough time left in the first half for both sides to have one more opportunity each, with Dawson doing well to control a long free kick into the box for Townhill, but he could not find a finish to match his touch as his shot went over the bar. Then, in the last action of the half Daniel McBay clipped the bottom of the post with a shot from the edge of the area.
