Juniors round-up: Linlithgow punished for penalty miss
Arniston remain in play-off race
Dundonald Bluebell 1
Linlithgow Rose 1
The points were shared on a sapping and difficult pitch. The first half was almost devoid of chances but in the second, the visitors took a grip on the match and went ahead when Coyne was upended. He dispatched the resultant penalty after 74 minutes. Two minutes later, Wallace brought down Coyne again but this time the striker’s penalty was saved. Rose were to rue that miss as Wallace found space to turn in the Rose box and hammer home an equaliser with seven minutes remaining.

Tranent fought back to score a late equaliser from a Miller header that saw the points shared.
