Dumbarton 0-3 Cowdenbeath: Blue Brazil made to work for three points
Dumbarton served up two early chances but it was Cowdenbeath who took the lead in nine minutes.
The Sons had gone close when first Aiden Lithgow headed narrowly over and then Mark Gilhaney repeated the feat seconds later.
But, when the first chance fell to the visitors, Lewis Coult made no mistake. Finding himself through on goal he tucked the ball away.
There may have been a suspicion of offside to that counter but, eight minutes later, there was no doubt about Cowdenbeath’s second goal.
Marc McKenzie, who had a fine game on the right wing, pulled a precise pass back to Greig Stewart who shot home from the edge of the box.
Dumbarton continued to make progress down both wings but the closest they came to a goal was a screamer from Scott Agnew which was eventually touched over by Tom Flynn.
Dumbarton dominated possession after the break, coming closest when Ken Adamson blocked a shot from Steve McDougall with his keeper stranded.
However, a much more incisive Beath made sure from the penalty spot with a third through McKenzie, who was upended by Ross Forsyth as he reached a pass threaded through by Stewart.
