Bo’ness United made it four Super League wins in a row after a convincing 3-0 victory at home to Carnoustie Panmure.

The visiting keeper Neil Ferrie made three good early saves to deny Darren Gribben, Robert Sloan and Nicky Walker. And even when Ferrie was beaten Bo’ness couldn’t find the goal with Hislop, Gribben and Stuart Hunter all missing the target.

Carnoustie’s best chance of the half came when Steven Cook connected with a Marc Scott cut back but his header from close in was wide of the post.

A minute into the second period and Bo’ness finally got a goal when Hislop headed in at the back post from a Gribben cross. Gribben himself got on the score sheet on 65 minutes, chipping in from the edge of the box after the Carnoustie keeper blocked from Nicky Walker.

All credit to Carnoustie who never gave up but they were up against a determined Bo’ness defence and it was the home side who went on the offensive in the final part of the game. Their efforts were rewarded again on 89 minutes when Robert Sloan got to the line and substitute Zander Miller connected with the cut back to score from close in.
