Half Time Perthshire 0 Harris 3
Perthshire started pressing the Harris defence but Harris looked dangerous on the counter attack. In the first ten minutes of the half, Ferg Wilson set up Albert for a shot which went wide and then shortly after Greg put in a cross which didn't find a Harris stick. Possibly the best chance during this period came when Greg played in Albert and his shot went under the keeper and past the post. A spell of pressure from Perthshire produced two short corners for the home team and from the first they had the ball in the net again but the first shot was above backboard height.With 15 minutes remaining Perthshire pulled back a goa. From their third short corner of the game Perthshire pulled back a goal but Harris sealed victory in the 30th minute of the second half when Albert broke through the middle and sent the ball past the keeper.
