Montrose 4 Berwick Rangers 1

Montrose moved up to second place in League Two with a comprehensive win over Berwick Rangers.
GARY FRASER opened the scoring for the home side from the penalty spot in the 17th minute after he was upended in the box by Steven Notman when trying to reach a Terry Masson through ball. He made no mistakes with his penalty kick, firing the ball low to the keeper's left and into the bottom corner.

ROSS CAMPBELL doubled the Gable Endies' advantage on the stroke of half time. Ryan Ferguson's cross into the box was well controlled by Fraser and his pass was perfectly placed for the Montrose skipper to sidefoot into the net and put Montrose two goals ahead at the break.
Berwick pulled a goal back 12 minutes into the second half when FINN GRAHAM curled a sublime free kick into Ross Salmon's top corner after Ross McCord had committed a foul just outside the box.

But it took Montrose just three minutes to restore their two-goal advantage. McCord played the pall to Scott Johnston, the winger bursting to the bye-line and sending the ball across goal to the back post, where GRAHAM WEBSTER was on hand to sweep the ball low into the net.
GARY FRASER completed the rout in the 80th minute when he headed into the top corner from Ross McCord's cross to the edge of the six yard box.

The victory was well-deserved for Montrose, who created numerous chances throughout the match. They came close in the 6th minute when McCord's free kick to the back post was headed across goal by Webster, forcing visiting goalkeeper Kevin Walker into a full-length diving save. Webster headed over from the resulting corner.

Ross Campbell also forced the goalkeeper into a save in the 11th minute, Walker tipping the striker's rising shot from 25 yards out over the crossbar.

Fraser could have opened the scoring in the 15th minute when he met Campbell's headed knock-down, but he could only lift the ball over Walker and out for a goal kick.

Berwick passed up an opportunity to equalise in the 34th minute when Graham's 50-yard run through the heart of the Montrose side culminated in him releasing Darren Lavery in the box, but the striker could only fire a deflected shot into the side netting.

The result proved to be the straw that broke the camel's back for Berwick Rangers, who sacked player-manager Colin Cameron after the match.
