The day had finally came for these two sides, it was the title decider and both teams were clearly buzzing. 
The came kicked off at 9:15, with the morning fog still rolling over the pitch. 
Craigmount started brightly and showed good determination to win tackles as well as winning the battle in midfield. 
Twenty minutes in and Craigmount's striker drove into the Royal High box, where has was taken down and adjudged to have been fouled, penalty to Craigmount. The striker stepped up and smashed the ball home, 1-0 to Craigmount.
Royal High's star man played a good ball through to their wide man, he took a heavy touch and controversially a corner was awarded to Royal High. 
In the ball goes and Royal High's big centre half meets the ball in the air, his header hittin the back of the net, getting Royal High back in the match. 
Half Time : Craigmount 1-1 Royal High
The match was on a knife edge.
The second half was full of hard tackles as both seem got stuck in, however there were to be no real chances created.
But, with twenty five minutes to go a mad moment from the Craigmount goal scorer resulted in him being shown a red card for his actions.
Craigmount's defence stood strong in the remaining minutes of the match and earned themselves a draw against Royal High's eleven men.
Full Time : Craigmount 1-1 Royal High
