Fife & Lothians Cup second round
St Andrews United 1
Haddington Athlettic 1
Haddington win 3-1 on pens
THIS was a huge scalp for Haddington. Gary Sutherland glanced a header to put St Andrews ahead after 27 minutes and Haddington found the going harder when Jackie Myles was sent off early in the second half but they equalised in the 80th minute when a Kevin Bracks effort was blocked back out to him and he slammed it home. St Andrews then had Kris Brash and Kevin Fotheringham sent off. Haddington held their nerve to win the penalty shoot-out.

Armadale Thistle 1
Newtongrange Star 1
The game sprang into life in the 61st minute when Robbie Feeney blasted home from a tight angle to put the ’Dale in front. The striker’s delight was short lived though as he was red carded ten minutes later for diving inside the box. This was to prove costly when, in the 87th minute, substitute Joe Dunbar slotted home the equaliser.

Penicuik Athletic 1
Broughty Athletic 2

A DRAW was probably the right result although, in three minutes, Morris was unlucky to see his shot come of the bar with Broxburn’s Holliday beaten. Broxburn had four good chances to snatch a victory with Cairns heading just over twice and Jeffrey not finding the net with two good chances.

Tranent equalised on 58 minutes through Chris Inglis. Michael McCormack slotted home from close range on 67 minutes to bring Tranent’s unbeaten league run to an end.
Tranent: S Inglis, Mack, Tait, C Inglis, Dick, Lally, Robertson (Bisset), Barbiroh, Lawrie, Scott, Horne. Subs: McGuinness, Young, Trialist, Turner.

Livingston United 2
Paul BYRNE opened the scoring for the visitors with a nice shot into the corner, but, around the half hour Whitburn were ahead with a Bryan King double, the first a well taken penalty and the second a header. The scores were levelled against the run of play when Charles Pearson bundled a poor Franny Carlin punch into the net. King then hit the bar and missed a penalty.
