Scott Metcalfe opened the scoring for the hosts in the 25th minute and worse was to follow for the visitors 11 minutes later when Thomas Corner headed home.

Brig tried to get back in the match after the interval, but the game was killed off in the 72nd minute when Albion grabbed their third through Aidan Chippendale.
