Champions Dunfermline Athletic beat Peterhead before being presented with the Scottish League One trophy.

Cardle netted the winner when he converted from Ryan Wallace's pass.

The Pars go up to the Championship having finished 18 points clear, while Peterhead will take on Ayr in the promotion play-off semi-final.
