Broxburn hit Newtongrange for seven, Penicuik, Musselburgh and Bonnyrigg picked up wins, but Bo’ness went down heavily in Fife ...
Broxburn Athletic 7-2 Newtongrange Star (Super League)
Broxburn played well enough the first half but found themselves a goal down at the break from a Kyle Lander penalty. The hosts got back on level terms just after the break when Jack Beasley’s free kick was deflected into the net. Darren Gribben then made no mistake from the spot on 56 minutes. The big changing point in game when Star’s Brian Murray was sent off wide right for a bad foul. The resultant free kick was headed home by Nicholas Locke. Alexander Miller the had two exceptional strikes to make it 5-1. Newtongrange got a lifeline when another penalty was struck home by Stephen Scott. Broxburn’s Kieran Anderson finished off the scoring with a double on 78 and 81 minutes. The scoreline could have been even more had Renton not made a wonderful save from Locke

Carnoustie Panmure 0-3 Penicuik Athletic (Super League)
In the first 45 minutes, Penicuik created so many chances, but some excellent goalkeeping and poor finishing saw the first half goalless. However, Penicuik turned up the heat in the second halfand deservedly took the lead in the 73rd minute when Lewis Barr fired in from close range after excellent work from MacDonald.
