Pumpherston still per­fect

West Lothian Courier - - Memory Lane - Kirk­caldy YM...0 Pumpherston ..... 3

Liv­ingston United picked up their first win in three games thanks to a fine se­cond-half per­for­mance away at Rosyth.

Both teams hit the post in the first half but the dead­lock wasn’t bro­ken by the half-time in­ter­val.

Andy Malone’s men opened the scor­ing on 53 min­utes when good play between Ja­son Gre­gory and Bryan Ja­conelli set up Kieran McGurk who saw his ini­tial ef­fort saved by Ross Hark­ness – only for him to tap the re­bound into the empty net.

The lead lasted only four min­utes, though, as for­mer United player Jack Hen­der­son bul­leted a header be­yond Gavin King for the lev­eller. Pumpherston con­tin­ued their per­fect start to the sea­son with eight wins from eight Premier South games thanks to three se­cond-half goals in Fife.

Ally McRitchie missed from the spot but they opened the scor­ing on 62 min­utes thanks to Barry Ni­chol­son.

Adam For­rest bun­dled the ball home shortly be­fore Ni­chol­son wrapped up the points with his se­cond in the clos­ing stages.

It was hon­ours even in the derby clash between West Calder United and Bath­gate This­tle with the hosts com­ing from a goal down twice to claim a share of the spoils. Adrian Shala gave the Jags the lead be­fore Ewan Leonard equalised while Rob­bie Feeney’s strike was later can­celled out by Jack McLaren.

Stoney­burn con­ceded late on in a 3-3 home draw against Lo­chore Wel­fare. Stephen McLay and John Carey had put the Ful­shie two up be­fore they were pegged back.

Ryan Robert­son looked to have given them the points with a late penalty but Wel­fare grabbed a third.

Harthill Royal went down 2-1 at New­burgh, with Liam Bail­lie net­ting Royal’s goal.
