With the game surviving the weather both teams took to the park in conditions that wouldn't look out of place in an arctic documentary.
Drumchapel  had deservedly taken all 3 points in the previous league game between the two sides and were looking to maintain their position at the top of the league while Drumsagard knew only a win would maintain their title aspirations.
Drumsagard started the brighter of the two and controlled the game in the early stages in fact it was nearly twenty minutes in before Drumchapel made any inrodes into Drumsagard territory.
With the conditions worsening and both teams cancelling each other it the game needed a bit of magic to spark it back to life but boy did we get just that, Brian McLean won possession in midfield for Drumsagard and out the blue unleashed a left foot rocket into the top corner that if the YFS cameras had been there it would have 100% been voted goal of the season.
Drumsagard then regained the initiative and should have added to their lead before half time but they couldn't take their chances.
Half Time: Drumsagard FAC 1-0 Drumchapel Amateurs  
After a quick turnaround the second half was all Drumsagard although Drumchapel will be kicking themselves when their centre forward missed a header from close range that may just have got them back into the game. 
Shortly after that miss Drumsagard effectively killed the game as they went 2-0 up, Joe Dickson broke free from the Drumchapel back line and ran towards goal before unselfishly squaring the ball to Lewis Ryan who calmly slotted home unmarked.
The game then pettered out with both teams just wanting to hear the final whistle and get indoors to defrost but Drumchapel gave themselves a glimmer of hope when they scored deep into storage time with a cracking goal but it was to little to late as Drumsagard held on.
A fantastic game in horrendous conditions and congratulations to both teams for playing the game in a very sporting manner.
