Eyemouth were very unlucky not to get more from this game as they were by far the better team.
Spartans played with the wind first half but failed to threaten the Eyemouth goal until a misplaced goal kick from Fairbairn went straight to the visitors attacker who made no mistake.
Eyemouth continued to make more chances with Sanderson, Ovcinnikovs & Tennant going close.
Finally Eyemouth made of of their chances count with a fine goal from Ovcinnikovs.
Spartans came more into the match after the break & went back in front 7 minutes in.
Again Eyemouth were dominating the game without threatening the visitors goal.
On a rare break Spartans earned a soft penalty when Walker tripped their midfielder who was not going anywhere.
However Eyemouth keeper Scott Fairbairn
was determined not to be beaten again & flung himself across the goal to brilliantly push the ball around the post.
Eyemouth continued to push but Spartans held on & you could see how pleased they were to scrape the win with the celebrations at the final whistle.
