A stunning strike from Lennox Slater earned Logie Harp a point from their game against Broughty United. The hosts led twice through Liam Clark and Simon Sharpe, but Brian Harris’ chip and Slater’s stunner ensured the points were shared.
It was third against fourth before kick-off, and with Fairmuir on cup duty, both sides knew that a win would take them up to second.
Third place Broughty started brightly, with an early Liam Clark free kick bringing a save out of Samuel Ross. Neither side was shying away from challenges, meaning clear cut chances were few and far between.
Gregor Tweed made a smart save when a Logie corner fell to Daniel Berry eight yards from goal, but his shot was smartly saved. Berry was involved at the other goalmouth moments later, clearing the ball off the line after Ross’s save from Clark spun up into the air.
Clark eventually got the better of Ross on 26 minutes, as Broughty took the lead. Callum Howe unlocked the Logie defence with a well weighted pass, and Clark made no mistake with a cool finish across Ross into the side netting.
The goal forced Logie to come out of their shell, but Tweed only had one real save to make, closing down Keir Murray from a tight angle, as Broughty saw out the half with their lead intact.
