Maud made the long trip to Airdrie to face Gartcairn in the3rd rd of the Scottish Cup. A Hale shot was straight at the keeper then a brilliant tackle by Lawson prevented Donnelly getting his shot away inside the box. A Leslie ball split the Maud defence open with Donnelly running in on goal his shot hit the outside of the post. The home side went in front from a cross by Hepburn found McEwan in the middle unmarked and he had a simple tap in. Fowlie with a diving went close from a ball in from Duguid. Fyfe was called into action making a fine block when McEwan broke through the Maud defence. A Gill header went wide then Priestly gathered a free kick by Fowlie at the second attempt. Priestly made 2 saves from Duguid then Fowlie as the 1st half came to an end.

HT 1 – 0

Maud started on the front foot with a cooper shot being well handled by Priestley. The home keeper then saw red as he came out to clear, he punched outside his box so was sent off. This gave Maud a lift and they were soon level as a free kick was deflected into the path of Fowlie who stabbed home. Hepburn wasted a free kick on the edge of the Maud box firing over. A Lawson header was high and wide then a Norris ball across the 6 yard ox but found no takers. The home side were quick on the break and went in front when a Hepburn shot was cruelly deflected past Fyfe. As Maud were pushing forward looking for an equaliser were caught on the break with Donnelly squaring for Leslie to fire home.

Maud next game is on Sat 9 December away to Hall Russell United in the McBookie.com Superleague with a 1.45 pm ko
