GLASGOW, Scotland (AP) — St. Johnstone beat Dundee United 2-0 Saturday to win the Scottish Cup for the first time in the club's 130-year history.

United midfielder Ryan Dow hit the post before Saints defender Steven Anderson headed in David Wotherspoon's corner as a pulsating first half moved into stoppage-time at Celtic Park.

Striker Steven MacLean scored the second goal after 83 minutes to the delight of St. Johnstone's 15,000 fans — a third of the population of the team's home city of Perth in central Scotland.

The McDiarmid Park side appeared in its first final of the competition and rode its luck at times against Dundee United — a team it had beaten three times in four Scottish Premiership meetings this season.
