Setback for Newtongrange hopes
Broxburn Athletic 4
The visitors took grip of the game from the kick-off and opened the scoring in five minutes when Alexander Miller was brought down in the box and Kieron Anderson scored from the spot. Some great play seven minutes later sent Nicholas Locke down the right and he crossed for Anderson who scored his second. Broxburn almost made ir 3-0 on the half an hour when Dalrymple’s goalbound effort was helped on its way by Locke who was flagged offside. Sauchie pulled one back two minutes into the second half when Gary McCulloch let fly from 30 yards into the top right-hand corner with Maley stranded at his left-hand side. Sauchie levelled with eight minutes remaining when a ball from the right to the back post found substitute Callum Robertson who fired home. Broxburn were not finished and within three minutes a great ball down the right released Willems who crossed from the byeline to the back post and Locke headed home. Anderson scored his hat-trick in injury time outmuscling the defence and turning his shot in of the right hand post from just inside the box.

St Andrews Utd 1
Penicuik Athletic 2
Penicuik finally ended their losing streak with a hard-earned victory. Aaron Somerville put Penicuik ahead in the 23rd minute when he slotted home after Young headed down a corner kick from Gay. The home side equalised 20 minutes into the second half through Craig Wedderburn, but Penicuik got the winner when David White knocked the ball home from close range.

Penicuik: Bejaoui, Young, Devlin, Liddell, White, Gay, Barr, Jancyzk, McCallum, Somerville, Listert.
Dundonald Bluebell 2
Haddington Athletic 0
Dundonald strengthened their position at the top of the table. There was not much between the teams. With 18-year-old rookie Nils Bleakley in goal, the Hi Hi gave as good as they got in the opening half hour but were made to pay for slack marking on the half hour when a throw-in from the right found Sean Grady in the box and the veteran turned quickly to shoot low into the bottom corner. Haddington should have equalised four minutes later from the penalty spot after Andrew Sinclair was fouled in the box but Bluebell keeper Lennon saved Paul Devlin’s effort. The hosts doubled their lead on 38 minutes when Grady again was given too much space to turn the ball in at the back post following a corner. Lennon was the home hero with good saves, foiling Haddington on a number of occasions in the second half in addition to his penalty save. Haddington debutant Shaun Hill was shown a red card four minutes from time, less than ten minutes after his introduction, following a rash challenge.
Dundonald: Lennon, McDonald, Hendry, Forbes, Mayne, Wallace, Lawrie, Orrock, Anthony, Meikle, Grady. Subs: Gilfillan, Hughes, Walton, Nutt, Young.
Haddington: Bleakley, Sproule, Ponton, Hume, Forbes, Inglis, Wright, Fairnie, Sinclair, Devlin, Berry. Subs: Hill, De Almeida, McPartlin, Martin.
