A late switch in fixtures due to Covid restrictions down south, saw a Ormiston travelling to Millfield instead of Berwick.

On their last visit to Millfield, Ormiston claimed a point in a 2 2 draw and it was clear from the start that they were indeed up for this match. Manager Joe Hamill made a couple of changes from the side that won at Kirkcaldy, and young striker Brandon Blair made his first start. The home side started well enough but they found Ormiston a well organised side and when the visitors claimed the opening goal midway through the half, another upset appeared likely. The loss of the goal clearly rattled the home side and they rarely threatened. It was a different story after the break following some strong words at the interval. The introduction of local lad, Michael Johnston, in his first appearance since March, had the desired impact. His physical presence combined with his good control started to cause problems in the visitors defence. The equaliser arrived in the 53rd minute when skipper Auriemma kept up his scoring run. The home side were in the ascendancy and only the woodwork and some indifferent finishing prevented them from falling behind. The Hi Hi’s pressure eventually told in the 82nd minute when good play from Ano Subasic provided an opening for substitute Johnston and his clinical finish ensured that the Hi Hi’s would remain top of Conference A.
