Carnoustie are in seventh heaven
CARNOUSTIE are in seventh heaven after their Super League clash against an under-strength Jeanfield.The 7-0 win takes the Gowfers out of the bottom three.
Two Steven Cook goals put them in the driving seat at half-time and the writing was on the wall for Swifts when Ryan Dignan made it three early in the second half. Cook then completed his hat-trick from a penalty and Dignan, Ewan Buggins and Jamie McCabe added another three to complete the rout.
Despite getting their noses in front, Forfar West End went down by the odd goal in three at home to Broxburn and remain rooted to the foot of the table.
Player/boss Daryl McKenzie gave his side an early lead but Andy Murray’s first-half double earned the visitors victory.
Lochee United suffered their third defeat in a row, this time against Linlithgow in the third round of the East of Scotland Cup.
Linlithgow nosed ahead after 10 minutes through a Tommy Coyne penalty. Another spot-kick, again converted by Coyne, resulted in Stephen McNally being sent off.
Grant Lawson pulled one back in 54 minutes but Rose hit back with Coyne completing his hat-trick.
A Dougie Cameron penalty gave Lochee hope but before they could think about an equaliser, Linlithgow added a fourth from Ruari MacLennan to seal the tie.
