Whitehill Welfare 2 Vale of Leithen 1

With Whitehill only a point ahead of Vale the stakes were high and it was the home side who got off to a perfect start. Gary Nicholson played in Jack Wright from the left and he calmly scored into the the bottom corner with only 2 minutes on the clock. 

12 minutes from time Vale levelled. Liall Smith found space in the area and sent a well placed shot into the far corner of the net via the hand of Easton. 

With the game seemingly heading for a few there was late drama. Craig McBride hauled down Kyle Mitchell just outside the box when clean through and was ordered off. Connor McGregor sent the resultant free kick into the top right corner to secure an injury time win for the Welfare.
