Evening Telegraph (First Edition) - - Health - BY JUNICUS

LOCHEE Harp pro­duced one of the re­sults of the day in t he Thor nton s P rope r t y League Cup, com­ing from be­hind to beat Tay­port 3-1.

The Fifers took the lead in 15 min­utes. Nathan Degernier fouled Dayle Robert­son i n the box and Robert­son took the re­sul­tant penalty him­self and made no mis­take.

Harp lev­elled in 52 min­utes thanks to a clin­i­cal fin­ish from Lloyd Young.

With 15 min­utes to go the Fifers lost Keiran Con­way when he was red­carded and Harp took full ad­van­tage.

Michael Gorm­ley’s side were awarded a penalty two min­utes later and Young stepped up to score his se­cond of the day. Then, with three min­utes to go, Harp wrapped up the points when the un­marked Con­naire Con­nelly tapped home.

Lochee United had a 2-0 home win over Blair­gowrie. How­ever, it was far from a vin­tage per­for­mance from the Blue­bells against a stuffy Blair side.

In fact, the Ber­ryp­ick­ers looked the bet­ter side in the open­ing stages but lacked the fin­ish­ing touch.

Lochee showed them how it should be done in 15 min­utes when Grant Law­son gave them the lead with a de­light­ful shot from 20 yards that found the top cor­ner.

Kevin Buchan then cel­e­brated his re­turn to the side af­ter a long spell out through in­jury when he bul­leted home a header from a Dougie Cameron cor­ner in 35 min­utes.

For the se­cond week run­ning, Vi­o­let were forced to play se­cond fid­dle as they suf­fered a 4-1 de­feat by East Craigie. The Ship­builders were al­ways in con­trol and were well worth their win thanks to strikes from Nik Mann, Andy McDon­ald, Adam Brown and Rory Faulkner.

The Pan­sies’ only crumb of com­fort came from a Sean Tucker penalty.

For the se­cond time this sea­son, Broughty Ath­letic had a field day away to Coupar An­gus, win­ning 18-0.

Ross McCord led the way with five and Kevin Milne was just be­hind with four. De­fender Gra­ham Hay bagged a hat-trick while Paul McLel­lan and Marc Scott both bagged dou­bles.

The rout was com­pleted by Ste­wart McCon­nachie and Greig Mc­Naughton.

Scone This­tle won 3-0 at Ar­broath Vics. Aaron McKay, Martin Stra­chan and Aaron Car­lon (pen) got the goals.

Forfar West End’s 4-0 win at Brechin Vics took them to the top of the group, al­though Kir­rie This­tle can still pip them.

Craig Batch­e­lor, Jamie Mont­gomery and a dou­ble from Mike McIl­ravey com­pleted a com­fort­able vic­tory.

New­burgh re­main point­less af­ter two games fol­low­ing a 3-0 home de­feat to Ken­noway.

Kevin Buchan goes close for Lochee United against vis­i­tors Blair­gowrie in the Thorn­tons Prop­erty Ser­vices League Cup.
