BO’NESS UNITED moved into the fourth round of the Fife and Lothians Cup after beating Camelon 8-7 on penalties.

Livingston United were 4-0 winners over West Calder, Brian Jaconelli getting a hat-trick to add to John Wilson’s goal. Blackburn’s Andy McQuillan also scored a treble in their 4-0 win at home to Stoneyburn, Micky Millar getting the other. In the only other game played, Spartans beat Dunbar 3-0.
