Hat-trick for Livi loa­nee

West Lothian Courier - - Sports -

Liv­ingston loa­nee Jack Hamil­ton helped Penicuik Ath­letic ease into the third round of the East of Scot­land Cup as the 17-year-old found the net three times.

Aaron Somerville net­ted twice for the Cuikie with Andy Forbes and Sean Jamieson also get­ting their names on the score­sheet for the vis­i­tors as they avoided a cup gi­ant-killing with ease.

Else­where, Bath­gate This­tle were dumped out of the Scot­tish Ju­nior Cup at the third round stage as they fell to a 5-1 de­feat away to Cum­nock - the team the Jags beat to lift the tro­phy in 2008.

Jamie Clark scored This­tle’s goal but it was merely a con­so­la­tion as they were sit­ting 4-0 down at the time.

Both Whit­burn’s home clash with Ben­burb and Lin­lith­gow Rose’s trip away to Oak­ley United were both called off due to the weather.

Only one other clash in­volv­ing a West Loth­ian side was given the go ahead and South Di­vi­sion strug­glers Stoney­burn gave a de­cent ac­count of them­selves as they lost 5-0 away to Su­per­league ti­tle hope­fuls Bon­nyrigg Rose at new Dun­das Park.

It was a spir­ited dis­play from the Ful­shie who were able to hold on un­til the half hour mark be­fore con­ced­ing three goals be­fore the break.

Wayne McIn­tosh net­ted the first two while Ross Gray wrapped up the game with a third on 43 min­utes. Both play­ers would then go on to find the net again in the sec­ond half.
