The second half saw more chances being created and and with 10 minutes left a clearance from the Holmwood defence looped of the head of a Littlegarth defender, E Slater ran onto the ball and his attempted volley sliced the ball and it bounced up over the Littlegarth keeper and into the net. Littlegarth equalised within the minute after a cross from the right struck J Evers on the back and escaped the reach of O Spence in goal. Holmwood continued to press and in the final minutes a shot from A Mackee saw parried by the Littlegarth keeper, L Cairns kept the ball alive and E Slater was there to poke the ball home from close range.
