Snow, ice and flooding put this game at risk but hard work by ground staff ensured the pitch was playable. Caley Thistle took the lead after 5 minutes - Brian Thomson was sent clear on the left by John Scott, cut the ball back and Daisy Ross sent a low drive into the net. It was 2-0 after 24 minutes when Mike Teasdale dispossessed Alleyne before running on and rocketing the ball home from 18 yards. In 67 minutes Livingston scored through Mark Duthie, a curling 20 yard shot which gave Jim Calder no chance, and 9 minutes later Graham Harvey made it 2-2 with a low drive from the edge of the box. Straight from the centre Caley Thistles Alan Hercher ran on to a long through ball from Ian MacArthur and slid the ball past the onrushing Douglas. To the great relief of the home fans the match finished 3-2.
