Dundonald started the stronger probing the home defence early on . In 3 minutes a throw in to Stuart Walton was then squared across the box but Connor Wallace cut out the danger . Alexander Miller had a great opportunity to open the scoring in the 4th minute when Greg Binnie set him up on the right hand side of the box and he turned the defender before curling a shot just wide of the right hand post . With ten minutes gone the visitors created a chance but Wallace saved and Gillen cleared the danger for a throw in . The opening goal came in 14 minutes when Jonni Turner fouled McKenzie in the box and ARCHIE CAMPBELL scored from the spot to put his side in front . On 17 minutes a free kick in from the right was met by the head of Calum Smith but his header went just wide of the right up right . Just before the half hour mark a ball squared to Gordon Donaldson so the defender 20 yards out but his shot went wide right . Chance of the game came three minutes later when Greg Binnie squared the ball across the box to Craig Scott and with everybody expecting the net to bulge Craig saw his shot saved by James Lennox in the visitors goals . On 33 minutes a corner by Turner in from the right  saw the ball break back out to him and his shot wizzed through the box and past the left hand side post . With six minutes left Greg Binnie was sent through but was thwarted by a great tackle just inside the box by Colin Wilson .

The second half started as the first half did with Dundonald on the attack and a minute into the half a ball down the right was cut back to Calum Smith but the striker saw his effort saved . At the other end two minutes later Miller saw an attempt easily saved . On 52 minutes Archie Campbell got on the end of a ball played in from the right  but saw his effort fly across the box and wide off the goal . Smith made a great pass to Jason Penman but the latter’s shot was saved comfortably by Wallace . Miller saw his shot when one on one with Lennox saved and the striker could not get the loose ball goal ward . It was Miller again who was sent through the visiting defence but this time he lost his footing at the vital moment and the ball ran through to the keeper on65 minutes .Michael Linton was booked for a foul five yards outside his own box and central but the free kick was crashed off the bar and as Gordon Donaldson broke away he was cynically fouled by Moffat who was carded for his trouble . The equaliser came with 15 minutes reaming when Miller was brought down outside the box and right .JONNI TURNER stepped up and curled a ball around the wall into the far left bottom corner . ALEXANDER MILLER got what ended up being the winner three minutes later when Scott Richards played him through beating the offside trap and firing into the net . A satisfactory result to start the season and we now move on to Tuesday night against Craigroyston with a run developing that I am sure the squad will want to preserve .
