The visitors came into this playing catch up on league games and picking up a big three points in very windy conditions as they tried to get back in the title hunt.
Erskine have proven themselves to be no mugs in recent matches taking points off the so called bigger teams in the league and they took adcantage of this scrappy afair going into the interval 1-0 up despite Sauchie having the best chances.
Half Time: Erskine 1-0 Sauchie Juniors
The second half proved less tricky for the away team playing with the wind rather than against it. Sauchie were knocking on the door and were beginning to get frustrated as chances were being spurned.
On 70 minutes however the impressive Jack Docherty levelled nodding in from 6 yards after an inviting cross from stand in full back Ben Hollywood.
With Sauchie on top, the game looked like ending in a draw until midfield magician Docherty pulled a rabbit out of the hat in the dying minutes unleashing a 35-yard reeker past the flailing keeper and into the net.
A good result on a day when both the weather and surface tried it's best to ruin the game.
Full Time: Erskine 1-2 Sauchie Juniors
