Haddington battle back; Easthouses off to flyer
Bo’ness Utd 1
Sauchie’s young forwards Connor Kelly and Ryan Miller ripped Bo’ness apart as they shocked the hosts. The visitors went ahead through Miller and the advantage was doubled when Kelly found the back of the net with a great finish. Bo’ness reduced the deficit through Gribben from 20 yards and he then hit the post as United chased an equaliser. Ross Campbell missed a great opportunity to equalise in the last minute before Miller got the third in injury time to clinch the points.

Carnoustie Panmure 4
Musselburgh Athletic 1
The home side took the lead after seven minutes when Scott Greig fired home from six yards. On 15 minutes, Musselburgh equalised from the penalty spot when Jackie Miles converted but two minutes later they fell behind again when Marc Scott scored with a close-range shot. Eight minutes into the second half, Carnoustie extended their lead when Jamie McCabe was left unmarked and, with 20 minutes remaining, Sam Simpson wrapped up the scoring for the home side.

Linlithgow Rose 1
Linlithgow fielded new goalkeeper Ally Adams – signed from Musselburgh – and he had to pick the ball out of the net after only three minutes, Tayport scoring with a deflected Scott Finlay effort. Both sides had chances after this with the visitors looking to have won the game until five minutes into injury time when Tommy Coyne crossed for sub Mark Tyrrell to head the equaliser.

St Andrews United 2
Bonnyrigg Rose 0
Bonnyrigg kicked off with a shock defeat from the new boys. Rose dominated possession but never recovered from an early Stevie McManus free-kick which eluded keeper Paul Grant. Bonnyrigg had enough chances to win the match but luck deserted them and a late goal from sub Keiron Sturrock sealed the victory. Rose’s Jon Brown saw red for foul and abusive language.
St Andrews United: Bruce, McMillan, Medicines, Holden, Deane, Manuals, White, Mackie, Machiavellian, White head, Brand. Subs: Dobbin, Kelly, Wednsebury, Thurrock, Clark son.

Montrose Roselea 2
Haddington Ath 2
The HI-HI fought back from a 2-0 interval deficit on their Premier League debut to rescue a point. Early defensive uncertainty saw them fall behind to a Callum Watson goal just seven minutes in, and the hosts doubled their lead half an hour later with a well-taken strike from Liam Campbell. Johnny Harvey’s men sharpened up after the break and sub Kayne Paterson netted their first goal at their new level midway through the second half. They equalised within five minutes after skipper Michael Fairnie was fouled in the box and Paul Devlin scored from the penalty spot. In the end a draw was just about fair.
Montrose Roselea: McLeod, Anderson, Sturrock, McDowell, Collier, Thomson, Campbell, Mowatt, Watson, Greig, Cruickshank. Subs: M Smith, Bailey, S Smith, Taylor.
Haddington: Amos, Berry, Draper, (Paterson 46), Forbes, Noble, Inglis, Wright, Fairnie, Noon, (Sinclair 46), Devlin, Sproule. Unused subs: Dick, Polowyj.
Easthouses Lily 2
West Calder United 0
Junior football newcomers Easthouses got their campaign off to a winning start with two second-half goals. After a goalless first half where the visitors went close with efforts from Ross Morrison and Darren Fleming, it was Alex Elliot who opened the scoring in the 56th minute to punish some slack play in the West Calder defence. The home side dominated thereafter with the woodwork denying them three times until Lewis Russell rounded West Calder keeper Jordan Hamilton ten minutes from time to secure the points .
Easthouses Lily: Hay, C.Brown, McManus, McQueenie, Tainsh, Elliot (Barrie 82), Russell, Robertson, M.Brown, McDermott, Young (Scott 82). Subs: Shearer, Bennett, Smith.
