Carnoustie nearly scored when a Scott Gray effort came back off the post on the half hour.

Sauchie 3

Linlithgow Rose 1

Sauchie emerged with a deserved victory against a lacklustre Linlithgow. Sauchie should have been ahead early in the match as a result of slack Linlithgow defending before taking the lead on 17 minutes when Millar found space on the left to cross and Diack angled the ball past a helpless Adams. Linlithgow pulled themselves level three minutes from half-time when Kelly rose to head home from 12 yards but Millar set up Morgan to restore Sauchie’s lead on 44 minutes. Linlithgow enjoyed plenty of possession but lacked a cutting edge and Tully took advantage of an Ally Adams howler to seal victory for the home side with eight minutes remaining.

Sauchie: Harkness, MacFarlane, Syme, McCulloch, Tully, McTaggart, Flood, Morgan, Diack (Dolan 29), Millar, Harrison. Subs: Richford, Duncan, Allan.

Linlithgow: Adams, Tyrrell, Baptie, McKenzie, Thom, Ruari MacLennan, Batchelor (Shirra 60), McGregor, Strickland (Coyne 45), Kelly, Kelbie (Roddy MacLennan 82). Subs: King, McKinven.

Arniston Rangers 3

Arniston took the lead just before the break when James Garden scored to take them in at half-time in front. Substitute Danny McFadden doubled their lead before John Armstrong puled a goal back in 73 minutes. McFadden scored in 80 minutes but Edinburgh’s Chris Robertson pulled another goal back from the penalty spot with five minutes remaining.

Dundonald Bluebell 1

Bonnyrigg Rose 2

A much changed Rose overcame a tough stubborn side on a difficult pitch with a strong wind making good football difficult. Rose were the better team in the first half and Scott Gray sent them in at half-time a goal to the good. Bluebell stuck to their task and were rewarded when Calum Young equalised in 70 minutes. Rose used all three substitutes and this move paid off when Kieron McGachie headed the winner with 14 minutes to play.

Dundonald: Lennon, Hughes, Hendrie, Forbes, Mayne, Walton, Grady, Orrock, Anthony, Miekle, Young. Subs: Gilfillan, Keatings, Quinn, Morrison.

Bonnyrigg: Andrews, Horne, Donaldson, Kidd, Moyes, Young, Gray, Tobin, McLaren, Nelson, Drummond. Subs: Hoskins, Stewart, McIntosh, McGachie, Turner.

Penicuik Athletic 3

Rosyth 0

The only incident of note in the first 45 minutes was a Keith Lough lob that beat keeper Wortley but came back off the crossbar. However, Penicuik upped the pace of their game and took the lead in the 52nd minute when Ryan McCallum, at the back post, headed home a Gay corner kick. Penicuik doubled their lead ten minutes later when Keith Lough bundled home an excellent Ryan Gay cross. Daryl Devlin completed the scoring in the 73rd minute with a fabulous 35 yard volley that keeper Wortley could only get fingertips to..

Penicuik: Bejaoui, Devlin, McDermott, McCallum, Young, Barr, Gay, Jancyzk, Lough, Somerville, Lister. Subs: Liddle, Blaikie, Patterson, Meikle.

Rosyth: Wortley, O’Connor, Kay, Hamill, McCulloch, Duffy, Goodwin, MacMillan, Hampson, McDiarmid, Morrison. Subs: Ogg, Johnstone, Robertson, Murphy.
