In East League Three, Dunfermline and Carnegie won in a dramatic finish at McKane Park, while Dalgety Bay made it two wins out of two in Division Seven.

Broomhall started the day top of Division Two and at Scroggie Park they were asked to bat by a useful-looking Falkland second XI side.

The visitors lost early wickets but recovered well through Chris Hoefling, Lewis James and Liam Doherty to clock a total of 156. They needed early wickets to put pressure on Falkland but an opening stand of three figures by Morris and former Fifeshire skipper Wayne Sullivan put the hosts on the road to victory.

A number of bowling changes were tried by the visitors but the Falkland batsman managed to survive and prosper and they passed their target with only one wicket down.

Broomhall (5) 156 for 5, (L James 49 not out, C Hoefling 40, L Doherty 33 not out, G Chambers 3 for 18).

Falkland second XI (20) 157 for 1, (M Morris 74, W Sullivan 68 not out, C Hoefling 1 for 28).

Dunfermline and Carnegie bowled themselves into a strong position at McKane against Drummond Trinity and then almost threw it all away.

Great work by Mushy Beg and Sazz Khan collected six Trinity wickets for only 30 runs and despite a rally, they made only 107.

The home side lost early wickets but a fine knock of 34 by Neil Harris got them into the strong position of 80 for five only for wickets to fall.

When the last pair of Brian Brown and Khan came together, they still needed 11 and this pair edged their side over the winning line, putting Dunfermline and Carnegie top with this week’s opponents at McKane, Kirkbrae.

Drummond Trinity (7) 107, (T Jays 31, M Begg 3 for 13, S Khan 3 for 17, U Saleem 2 for 22).

Dunfermline and Carnegie (20) 108 for 9, (N Harris 34, U Saleem 13, R Awan 4 for 24).

Dalgety Bay were at the Meadows, in Edinburgh, to take on SMRH fourth XI in Division Seven and were a little surprised that the home side chose to bat on a surface which looked like favouring the bowlers.

Dave Picksley and Jamie Pryce had the home batters in trouble from the first ball and wickets fell steadily before Alan Pearson entered the fray to overpower the middle order.

The Bay cleaned the hosts out for just 50 runs but the visitors did not find batting easy either.

Murray Forbes took no chances and while Pryce played a more expansive innings to keep the board ticking over, their efforts saw the target passed after only 14 overs to cement their spot at the top of the table.

SMRH fourth XI (1) 50, (A Pearson 4 for 15, D Picksley 3 for 11, Ja Pryce 2 for 6).

Dalgety Bay (20) 51 for 2, (Ja Pryce 23. E Robertson 2 for 4).

Broomhall second XI were at The Cairns in the same division against Musselburgh second XI and won a high-scoring match by 59 runs.

Charlie Stoddart and Michael Goodchild shared an opening stand of 140 which set them on the road to a big total.

Stoddart made 78 and there were other knocks from Goodchild, Ian Bold and Day as the score rocketed up to 243 in 40 overs.

Musselburgh took advantage of a good batting surface to score freely and it took a good spell by Phil Ward to dislodge set batsmen.

The East Lothian side kept scoring well but they ran out of overs with still 54 runs needed.

Broomhall seconds (20) 243 for 3, (C Stoddart 78, J Day 43 not out, M Goodchild 41, I Bold 34, M Benson 2 for 45).

Musselburgh secondXI (7) 189 for 6, (H Martin 45, D Gibson 42, P Ward 3 for 36).
