Lough at the double in 5-1 win
Carnoustie Panmure 1
Penicuik Athletic 5
A breathtaking five-minute spell saw Penicuik race into a 3-1 lead, Keith Lough’s curling effort opening the scoring on 14 minutes before he added his second a minute later. Ryan McCallum then made it 3-0 on 17 minutes with Pat Smith pulling one back for the Gowfers within a minute. Craig Hume then scored his first Penicuik goal from distance on 34 minutes.

A second goal for Bryne just after the restart put the home side further ahead. Cropley reduced the deficit after 80 minutes. Fauldhouse keeper Jonathan Grier saved a last-minute Cropley penalty.

Bathgate Thistle 6
Haddington Athletic 1
Both teams had just one league win going into this game, but Bathgate cruised to victory. Reece Boyle put them in front on 13 minutes then, just two minutes before the break, Hassan Nyang doubled their lead with a low angled drive from the right just outside the box. Hi Hi’s keeper Sinclair Inglis was injured four minutes after the restart, just as Bathgate went three up with a scrambled effort from Darren MacIsaac, and replacement Liam Amos conceded the fourth just before the hour, Robbie Feeney the scorer. Haddington’s Dean Woods claimed the best goal of the game minutes later but it was of little consolation as Feeney and substitute Liam Healy scored for the hosts.
Bathgate: Watson, MacDonald, Clark, Bonnar, MacIsaac, Taylor, Griffin, Nyang, Feeney, Dalrymple, Boyle. Subs: Minnock, Harris, McIntosh, Healy, Kelly.
