In a tight and sometimes physical encounter, Monifieth 14's fine start to the season continued with another deserved victory. For this cup-tie, Manager Farnan moved Matchett into his usual sitting midfield role, and re-introduced Armstrong into the back four.  
 
The home side started well, and inside 5 minutes were one up when Gallacher gave the keeper no chance with a 20 yard shot that dipped just under the bar and in.  
 
The home side continued on top, and despite several good chances to extend their lead it was Pitfour who struck next on the counter- attack when their no. 10 slotted home beyond the advancing Ralston. 
 
However, Monifieth roared back and on the stroke of half-time – from Barr’s corner - McNeill bulleted home a fine header.

From the re-start the home side’s dominance in midfield really began to tell. Hush was getting the better of his man, Matchett was making his presence felt, Gallacher was box to box and Westwater made good use of the ball with some clever passing.  

It was no surprise then that the home side extended their lead into a commanding position.  Firstly, Tosh slid in a cross from Pickett, and Beattie slammed home Monifieth’s fourth after great work from Hush on the wing. 

To their credit, Pitfour refused to lie down and added a consolation with a fabulous 20-yard volley late on.
