Clarke masterminds Raith win
Patrick Clarke made one goal and scored another as Raith beat Aidrie 2-0.
Raith striker Brian Graham gave his side the lead in the 35th minute when he tapped in from the middle of the area after good work from Clarke on the right wing.
After a quiet start to the second half, the hosts doubled their advantage in the 61st minute when Clarke found the bottom corner of Grant Adam's goal from the edge of the penalty area.
The visitors tried to get back into the match in the second half but failed to make any impact on the game.
Their best chance of the second period fell to Josh Watt, who shot wide from 20 yards out in the closing stages.
