Shaun Hardie stepped off the bench to slot home the winner in a Beveridge Cup quarter-final tie.

Gala dominated the early stages and persistence paid off in nine minutes when McDonald found Patterson who picked up the ball and fired into the top left-hand corner. The visitors levelled in 20 minutes.

The second half saw the welcome return of Hardie after almost two years on the injury list and in the 65th minute he managed to squeeze the winning shot under the visiting keeper.
