The game started on an even keel with both teams exchanging chances. The first goal came after loads of pressure from the bankies. As the ball was played down the right hand side and Kevin McNaught finished neatly from a tight angle. 
From then on in the half Arsenal had control of possession and were playing good football, but were unable to finish the chances that they had. The pick of the chances fell to Kane O'Neil who's well worked shot flashed just wide of goal. 
Half Time : Clydebank 1-0 Arsenal BC 
At half time Ross Smith of Clydebank was swapped with Sean Stewart.
The second half started off in a flash, a deflected shot went out for a corner. Fraser Reid's corner caused chaos in the six yard box but Jamie Grimes headed the ball home to give Clydebank a two goal lead. 
Soon after these sub there was a chance for Arsenal but they couldn't get the ball over the line with tenacious Clydebank keeping there lead in tact. 
Heading into the final 20 Minutes the Bankies extended their lead. Sub Stewart was running through on goal and was clear through if he wasnt cynically brought down by Ian Seymour this leaving the ref with no other decision than to send the Arsenal man off. The penalty was taken by the sub and he dispatched off it too make it 3-0 clydebank. 
The Bankies had a chance to extend their lead on the 78th minute but Cameron Morgan blasted over from six yards. 
Arsenal did have the ball in the back of the net after David Coyle headed the ball home but he was ruled offside. He was then shown a second yellow card for descent.
