Football Nation Qualifying Cup, 3rd round:

Kelty Hearts 4 Whitehill Welfare 0,

KELTY HEARTS needed extra-time to see off their Lowland League rivals.

They were given a golden opportunity to take the lead in the 26th minute when they were awarded a penalty but midfielder Stephen Husband's kick was well saved by visiting keeper Ross Jardine.

Stuart Cargill, Kelty's top scorer, and Scott-Taylor Mackenzie both came close before the interval, while further chances for Cargill, Ciaren Chalmers, Murray Carstairs and Willis Hare came and went before an additional 30 minutes were needed.

The deadlock was finally broken in the opening period when Chalmers netted his fourth goal in six matches, and that signalled the opening of the floodgates as Welfare began to tire.

Chalmers doubled his, and the hosts', advantage before half-time in extra time, and Cargill made it three with his 20th goal of the season, which took him to within two of the club's all-time scoring record.

Ian Nimmo added some further gloss to the scoreline by adding a fourth goal as Kelty sealed progression before Barry Ferguson's men switch their attention back to league business this weekend.

Table-topping Hearts, who are one point clear of East Kilbride having played a game more, welcome third-top BSC Glasgow to New Central Park.

Football Nation Qualifying Cup, 2nd round:

Bonnyrigg Rose 7 Oakley United 2

OAKLEY were overpowered by Bonnyrigg Rose.

Stewart Kenny's team travelled to New Dundas Park to take on a home side that had lost just one competitive game all season and had yet to taste defeat on home turf.

An already difficult task got harder when, after 14 minutes, they fell behind and it got worse for the visitors just three minutes later when the hosts made it 2-0.

Six minutes from the interval, Rose added a third and a bizarre own goal from Gary Ironside, where his attempted backpass from halfway somehow found its way into an unguarded net, made it 4-0 before Bonnyrigg made it six before the hour mark.

Oakley pulled a goal back in the 65th minute when James McAteer slid to convert at the near post but their opponents made it 7-1 11 minutes from time.

But it was Kenny's men who had the final say when, deep into stoppage time, a spectacular finish from Joe Dawson flew beyond the Rose keeper.

East of Scotland League, Conference B:

Crossgates Primrose 5 Dunipace 1

IN-FORM Crossgates Primrose recorded their seventh win from eight games with a comprehensive victory over Dunipace.

Alan Campbell's side defeated their opponents 5-1 at Humbug Park in an East of Scotland League Cup preliminary round match last month and repeated the trick on Saturday.

Lyall Shaw gave the hosts a flying start when he netted inside the opening minute, and things got even better when Scott Lawrie doubled their lead from the penalty spot just five minutes later.

Shaw added his second and Crossgates' third on the half-hour mark and, although Greg MacPherson pulled one back before the half-time for the visitors, second-half strikes by Scott Hynd and Blair Clark completed a resounding win.

Primrose are now fourth in the table ahead of this weekend's visit of Tranent, and Campbell said: "It was another good performance and win.

"The players are victims of their own success; with the run we've been on and the way we're playing, different questions are being asked of them, but we were worthy winners.

"There are stiffer tests around the corner but we've won seven of our last eight games, so they have a massive amount of confidence. We've got Tranent on Saturday, and they'll come into the game as favourites, but we'll go about our business quietly and prepare properly.

"Our groundsmen worked really hard to get the game on on Saturday, so it was nice to reward them with a win."

Thorntons Property East Region League Cup:

Rosyth 4 West Calder United 0

ROSYTH added to their Scottish Junior Cup success by bagging their first win in the East Region League Cup with a thumping win over West Calder United.

The hosts made the breakthrough nine minutes before the break when Karl Higgins put them ahead before in-form Jason Keith took over.

His quick-fire double in the 62nd and 64th minutes put the tie to bed for the Rec, who completed a fine afternoon's work with a goal from Gregg Page with eight minutes to go.

"We were under a wee bit of pressure in the first 10-15 minutes but I think that was mainly due to having a trialist playing and someone making his debut," boss Brian Muirhead told Press Sport.

"The debutant scored and, in the second half, we came out and killed them off with two quick goals from Jason Keith. I've raved about him all season and the second goal was a cracker.

"They changed their shape a bit but we were hitting them on the break and could've scored another three or four. It was the first time I was able to field the same defence two weeks running, so that was pleasing, as was their workrate.

"Some of the football has been really good to watch. The squad is really strong and I've got two coming in on trial on Thursday. If we can finish in the top half of the league, I'd be happy with that progression."

Before their penultimate match in the first phase of the League Cup, Rosyth will find out their opponents in the next round of the Scottish Cup when the draw takes place tomorrow (Friday).

Among the teams that will be in the hat are Ayrshire giants Auchinleck Talbot, who have lifted the trophy on a record 12 occasions; 2014 winners Hurlford United; Kilwinning Rangers, who have won the cup twice; Glasgow giants Pollok; and Clydebank.

Muirhead added: "We'd love a big gun.

"It'd be a great experience for the players and for the club as well. We're looking forward to it."
