Masson downs Berwick
Terry Masson's solitary strike was enough to earn Montrose all three points against a spirited Berwick side at Shielfield Park.
The home side created the game's first chance after just three minutes when Kevin Gordon's strike was well saved by the feet of Ramiro Gonzalez.
The away side were fortunate again in the 12th minute as Gordon lost his marker, only to see his header hit the post.
Montrose did create some chances and improved significantly in the second half with opportunities falling to Connor Thompson, Sean Crighton and Aaron Sinclair.
And they found the back of the net in the 80th minute when Masson curled in a right-footed shot from outside the area.
The home side tried in vain to equalise in the dying stages, but they did not have enough firepower to beat Gonzalez.
