Beesley broke down the wing before squaring to Murrell who slotted the ball into the net.

Ten minutes later and Beesley was causing problems again before playing in Murrell who again scored.

Dalbeattie got back in the game from the penalty spot when Jack Steele was bundled over in the box by Ewan Saunderson.

Lewis Sloan stepped up and sent the keeper the wrong way make it 2-1 at half time.

Dalbeattie levelled the match when Lewis Sloan whipped in a ball and Lee Wells nipped in front of the keeper to prod the ball into the net.

David Greenhill almost put the home side in front when but his long range effort smashed of the bar before the danger was cleared.

With it all level at full time extra time was needed and Spartans won the game when Jamie Dishington was played in by Murrell and fired the ball home. (3-2 AET)
