A Jack Purdue penalty in the second-half saw Greenock Morton beat Ayr United to lift the SPFL Development League West title, completing a dramatic final week of the season for Morton, Ayr, Airdrieonians, and Stranraer.
Both sides went into the game at Cappielow knowing that a win for either side would secure them the league championship, whilst a draw would've seen Airdrieonians take the title. However, it would be Derek Anderson's men that would take the spoils thanks to Purdue's calm spot-kick.
The win capped a tremendous comeback week for Morton, who began their title-charge last Friday night in a dramatic 3-2 win over Airdrieonians. This was then followed by Stranraer being docked three points after an SPFL disciplinary hearing ruled that they had fielded an ineligible player - opening up the title race.
A 6-1 hammering of Albion Rovers on Monday night meant that the home side came into this one in fine form, whilst Ayr came into this one on the back of five straight league victories themselves.
Both sides knew the importance of the occasion, and a whirlwind start saw chances for either team in the first five minutes.
Firstly, some lovely play down the left from the home-side saw the ball cut-back to Reece Lyon. The midfielder snapped at the shot however, and saw it lash wide.
Right up the other end, an attempted clearance from the Morton back-line saw the ball oddly bounce off of Jamie Martin and nearly sneak in over Daniel Farrell before going over. The Morton goalkeeper was once again on fire tonight though, and had to beat away a low strike from James Hilton as United threatened to take control.
Yet, after a quick start, the game started to settle into a scrappy affair. United were getting some real joy down the flanks at times, whilst Martin was good about many things going forward for the visitors. Aye were missing a final ball though, and allowed Morton off the hook on several occasions.
Morton's outlet, unsurprisingly, was often Kieran Brophy, who scored their memorable winner against Airdrieonians just five nights ago. The right-winger got several teasing crosses into the penalty area, with Purdue on the end of one that he scooped high over.
The rain was lashing down at Cappielow, adding a fitting obstacle to what was already a difficult and monumental occasion for both sets of players.
Morton started to get control of proceedings before the break, and will wonder how they never took the lead right on the stroke of half-time.
The ball dropped nicely for Shaun Rodgers to hammer a volley off the far post, before the ball bounced right in front of Alexander Easdale, who could only poke over in a reactionary attempt.
The half-time whistle would blow immediately after, and Easdale had his head in his hands as he knew how colossal that opportunity was.
