The Little Report Partick Thistle in first major cup final since 1959” (GH). “High-speed JAGS a treat to watch” (ET). Both teams went all out for attack from the start and produced some exciting play. The vital difference in the teams was Thistle's wingers. McQuade and Lawrie bewildered the Falkirk defenders with Bone and Coulston in the middle playing their part too. Falkirk had their share of the play too and Rough had some magnificent saves to repel them as they went all out for an equaliser. Thistle should have taken the lead as early as 17 minutes when a Lawrie cross was passed on to Coulston but his shot was blocked by the keeper but on the hour mark they took the lead. A shot from Bone hit the post and veered nicely to McQuade who hit it high into the net. Falkirk came back strongly in the second half and Rough had a tremendous twist and save to keep out a potential McQuade own goal. It looked as if 1-0 would be the final score but with 4 minutes remaining the Falkirk sweeper attempted a pass-back to his keeper. McQuade nipped in and knocked it over the keeper into the net. Celtic or St Mirren awaited Thistle in the final.
