After the visitors had taken the lead, Callum Hutchison levelled with a 25-yard free kick to send the sides in level at the break. Scotia got themselves in front after the restart when another Hutchison free kick was deflected past the visiting custodian. A frantic finale was assured when Kinross levelled with a well taken volley. However, it was the hosts who clinched victory as Dale Smith netted from the penalty spot. The result followed the disappointment of exiting two cups recently. Rosyth booked their place in the showpiece with a 3-0 win over Leslie Hearts.
