Bo’ness stunned by fightback; Arniston stay in hunt
Hill of Beath Hawthorn 2
Bonnyrigg Rose 3
Rose left it late to take the points against a home side which finished with nine men. Rose dominated possession but found themselves two down to goals from Darren Hay.

Bo’ness Utd 3
Lochee Utd 4
Lochee came from three down to get the win with an amazing comeback. Bo’ness looked on easy street with goals from Colin Strickland, Ross Philp and Ross Campbell putting them in control before a remarkable turnaround.

It was a game of two halves, Star having the best of the first and Camelon enjoying the second. Neil Martyniuk opened the scoring with a penalty for Star – a deserved lead they held to the break.

Guy Kerr’s early strike gave Tranent the lead but it was all square after 25 minutes when Ross Tierney crashed home a Callum Robertson corner. Minutes later, Armadale were in front when Robertson’s free-kick was headed home by Liam Kane. Tranent’s new signing Scott McNaughton headed home the equaliser in the 54th minute before Kayne Paterson grabbed the winner for Tranent. In the closing minutes, Dale keeper Dylan Rooney was red-carded after hauling down Paterson in the box but sub keeper Brian King saved Ben Miller’s spot-kick.

Arniston Rangers 2
A good three points for Arniston to keep them on track for a play-off spot. In the fifth minute – following a crazy scramble in the Tayport box – the ball hit the back of the net through a maze of legs to give Arniston the lead. Tayport equalised early into the second half with an Alan Tulleth effort. Greig Callaghan scored the winner for Arniston in the 68th minute as Tayport fell to pieces with three men being sent off in the second half.
