Ramsdens Cup: Cowdenbeath 3-0 East Fife

Jamie Stevenson was the star of the show as Cowdenbeath eased to a comfortable Ramsdens Cup success over neighbouring rivals East Fife at Central Park.

Stevenson struck twice and created the other goal as the home side dominated.

The opening goal arrived two minutes before half-time. Stevenson was fouled by David White just outside the penalty area and dusted himself down before sending a superb free-kick into the bottom corner of the net.

Cowdenbeath added a second goal in the 66th minute when Stevenson's inswinging corner was headed in by Kyle Miller from 15 yards.

And man-of-the-match Stevenson rounded things off in fine style by driving home a third goal from 20 yards in the 73rd minute.
