DUNFERMLINE and Carnegie Cricket Club's winning run continued on Saturday but it was achieved without a ball being struck in anger.

The in-form McKane Park side, who are top of the East Division Three table with a 100 per cent record, had been due to host St Boswells but team problems during the week saw them concede the fixture.

It means Dunfermline and Carnegie now have nine wins from nine and continue to lead from Hawick and Wilton, who defeated Marchmont to also maintain a perfect record having played a game less.

Melrose are the visitors to McKane this weekend as Dunfermline and Carnegie seek to take their victorious streak in double digits, but club president, Martin Honeyford, was disappointed the game was called off, commenting: "I suppose we collected all 20 points but it would have been better to have achieved the result on the pitch on what was another superb day weather-wise."

At The Cairns, Broomhall did take to the field in Division Four and they kept their own promotion ambitions going with a good win over Watsonians Third XI.

The home side were put in to bat and did so confidently, with Chris Hoefling top scoring with an impressive 78 and Alan Gudgin hitting 44, allowing them to amass more than 200.

Watsonians replied with some decent contributions but their batting lacked depth, and Phil Ward and Scott Lucas took seven wickets between then to secure the win.

Broomhall lie third in the table but are only two per cent off second top spot.

Broomhall (20) 206 for 8, C Hoefling 78, A Gudgin 44, B Hogg 3 for 32.

Watsonians Third XI (7) 123, D Bryan 30, R Martin 28, P Ward 4 for 14, S Lucas 3 for 28.

Dunfermline and Carnegie Second XI were also in action and they stayed right in the mix for promotion from Division Seven by winning at Galashiels.

On winning the toss, the visitors took first lease of the Meigle Park wicket and through Dylan Wood made a fine start.

The teenager batted sensibly and took his personal contribution to 39 before he was out and other double figure contributions took the total to 169.

Gala were always behind the run rate and wickets fell steadily with Gareth Coles and Matt Howis helping themselves to six wickets as the visiting side won by 78 runs.

Dunfermline and Carnegie Second XI (20) 169, D Wood 39, D Miller 21, R Patterson 3 for 18, M Maciera 2 for 24.

Gala 2nd XI (7) 91, C Thomson 19, G Coles 3 for 12, M Howis 3 for 23.
