The home side were ahead after 19 minutes when Stephen Pearson headed home Steven Hammell's right-wing corner.
Dunfermline battled hard and nearly forced their way back into the contest, however shots by Jason Dair and David Grondin drifted wide.
Moments into the second half Steve Craig doubled Motherwell's advantage, beating Derek Stillie with a pin-point shot.
Just when it looked like the home side might run away with the contest, Scottish international striker Stevie Crawford pulled a goal back for the visitors.
