Yven Moyo opened wor accoont in the 39th minute with a reet foot shot past the despairin' home keeper.
Brandon Mielie then doubled wor lead 29 mins from time with a deflected shot which wrang footed the Berwick keeper.
The home side replied 5 mins later from the penalty spot but that was the end of the scorin' and wor 'second string/juniors' ran oot 2-1 winners in wot was a truly aaful game to watch! "ZZZZzzzz!!!!"

Thankfully there was ne pitch invasion this time!
