Bonnyrigg Rose 3

Bo’ness United 2

Hill of Beath Hawthorn 1

Penicuik Athletic 0

Penicuik went behind in the eighth minute when Aaron Hay glanced home a McCrindle cross. Penicuik gradually got back into the game and exerted strong pressure on the home defence. However, throughout the 90 minutes Penicuik played route -one football and failed to make any impression on a solid Haws defence when they should have varied their style of play as it was obvious the long ball wasn’t working.

Hill of Beath Hawthorn: S Hall, Wilson, Miller, Dougan, Moffat, Adamson, McCrindle, Hay, McKenzie, G Smith. Subs: Leishman, Bryce, C Smith, D Hall, Connor.

Penicuik: Bejaoui, Ross, McDermott, Bruce, White, Barr, Devlin, Jancyzk, McCallum, Somerville, Lough. Subs: Mitchell, Young, Lister, Montgomery, Patterson.

Kelty Hearts 0

Musselburgh Athletic 1

Musselburgh gained the three points in an end-to-end match with Sean Jamieson grabbing the second-half winner. Musselburgh nearly went ahead on 15 minutes when Gary Hamilton met a corner kick but his powerful header was well saved by keeper Kyle Allison. Former Burgh player Paul Currie then tested keeper John Dodds with a well struck shot which the keeper had to dive length to turn the ball over. Ten minutes before the break the home side were reduced to ten men when Devon Jacobs was shown a straight red for a challenge on Steven Thompson. Keeper Dodds pulled off a point-blank save from a Brian Ritchie header ten minutes after the restart but it was Musselburgh who got the winner with 20 minutes to play when a low cross into the box was met by Sean Jamieson at the near post and despite a valiant effort by keeper Allison to keep the ball out the referee ruled on the advice of his assistant that the ball had crossed the line. Both teams had further chances to score in a free flowing game but Musselburgh held on to claim all three points.

Kelty Hearts: Allison, Jacobs, Gates, Leighton, Courts, Currie, Ritchie, Husband, Smith, Cargill, McCabe. Subs: Hughes, Dalziel, Morrison, Carstairs, O’Reilly.

Musselburgh Athletic: Dodds, Christie, Martin, Myles, Hamilton, Gibson, Bracks, McKenna, Thompson, Jamieson, Palizcka. Subs: Jackson, Conaghan, Wright, Swaney, Davie.
