An inventive half volley from Ben Smith proved to be the winner for Currie as they edged out Edinburgh South by a goal, in a dogged battle at Double Hedges.
The visitors raced into an early lead on nine minutes as Fergus Wright pounced, but only to find themselves trialling a further seven minutes later.
Well-worked goals either side of half time from Wright and Smith sealed the deal for Currie, who as a result, will move level on points with Edinburgh South, with a further three games in hand.
Terry Innes stung the palms of Sonny Boyle early on with a low drive from outside the area and the Edinburgh South keeper could only parry behind at the expense of a corner.
From the resulting kick, the ball found a way through to the back post via Finn McKay, and when it fell to the feet of Wright there was only one thing on his mind as he deftly lifted to ball over the helpless Boyle to open the scoring.
It was only a matter of five minutes until the home side were back on level terms, all thanks to Aidan Blair’s curling free kick, which bent away from goalkeeper Fraser Mooney, who was left clutching at thin air.
Moments later and the score line had been turned on its head. The ball fell kindly to midfield runner Charlie Cowdy, who set himself with the first touch before firing low and hard across Mooney with the second, to put Edinburgh South in control for the first time in the match.
Wright struck his second of the day on 23 minutes as he collected the ball on the left wing, before stepping inside his man and calmly rolling the ball underneath Boyle and into the far corner, to equal the score at two.
It was Edinburgh South who were in the ascendancy in the lead up to the interval. Callum Gilchrist and Ailsa Boyle both put efforts straight at Mooney in goal, before Ciaran Leslie blazed wide from long distance.
The final chance also fell the way of the home side, as a powerful low cross was parried out by Mooney to Cowdy, who surely would’ve scored if it wasn’t for a fantastic last ditch challenge from Josh Baird, as the sides went in tied at the break.
