The ball was quickly passed along the back line from the en­su­ing scrum for Michael Grant to score in the cor­ner. Souter con­verted, which re­duced the vis­i­tors’lead to four points.

Stra­then­drick took the ball from the restart but some great work by the Blair­gowrie back row al­lowed the home side to re­gain pos­ses­sion, driv­ing their op­po­nents back up­field to win a penalty.

It was quickly taken by Neil MacRae but knocked on by a Blair­gowrie player.

The lo­cal lads were given an­other chance when a Stra­then­drick player was called off­side and Blair­gowrie were awarded an­other penalty.

In a nail-bit­ing fin­ish, ev­ery­one was wait­ing for the fi­nal whis­tle af­ter at least five min­utes of ex­tra time had been played.

Then the Blair­gowrie pack took con­trol of the ball and drove over the line for Dave Mal­loch to touch down for a sen­sa­tional try.

Souter’s suc­cess­ful con­ver­sion was quickly fol­lowed by the fi­nal whis­tle, much to the de­light of the large Blair­gowrie sup­port.
