Lochee United turned in another poor performance going out on penalties to North League side East Craigie. Craigie were awarded and converted a penalty just on 11 minutes. Lochee equalised through a Kirk header on 20 minutes. That's the way it stayed until half time with Lochee pressing for most of the half. Second half Lochee go 2-1 up with Ritchie finishing well on 60 mins. Despite having the majority of the ball we never looked like we would get a third goal. However Craigie scored from a good strike just inside the box to level. On to penalties with both sides scoring the first two then Fonzie making a good save with Craigie's third to give Lochee the advantage. Craigie looked to be going out after they had taken all five pens scoring from four with Lochee only requiring to score from their last kick, however the ball scraped the bar keeping the home side's hopes alive.Craigie scored the next two and with Lochee requiring to score to stay in the competition a poor kick saw the ball saved and Lochee knocked out of the GA Cup.
Overall a very poor game from a Lochee point of view.
