Oct 18: East Region Round-up

TOMMY COYNE was on the money for Linlithgow Rose as the striker bagged a hat-trick in his team’s five goal victory over Carnoustie Panmure.

But the men from Prestonfield didn’t get things all their own way as they moved up to third in the East Superleague table with a 5-2 win against their visitors from Angus.

Coyne and his team mates twice had to come from behind in a very open first half.

Rori Bews opened the scoring for Carnoustie in 17 minutes but Coyne was on hand to equalise four minutes later when he got onto the end of Richie McKillen’s pass before firing low into the net.

Alan McSkimming’s men regained their lead just before the half hour mark when Roddy Black headed home but Rose responded within sixty seconds of falling behind for the second time in the match with Colin Strickland equalising.

But Linlithgow were the better team in the second period and Coyne bagged a quick-fire double midway through the second half to put Linlithgow in command and complete his treble before Kevin Kelbie rounded off the scoring late in the game.

Linlithgow’s arch rivals Bo’ness United recovered from last week’s shock defeat against Hill of Beath with a comfortable 4-0 win at Ballingry Rovers to move into fourth place.

Chris Donnelly opened the scoring for Bo’ness shortly after the interval before man-of-the-match Kieran Anderson bagged a double to secure the win and Nicky Walker completed the scoring.

Kelty Hearts, who were top of the table at the start of the day, stumbled as they were held to a goalless draw at Fauldhouse United and the game between Broxburn Athletic and Camelon at New Albyn Park also finished with neither team finding the net.

Penicuik Athletic continued their impressive start to life in the top flight as Darrell Young’s solitary strike earned the Midlothian side a 1-0 win against Hill of Beith in Fife.

Meanwhile at New Dundas Park Bonnyrigg Rose appear to be getting their season back on track since the arrival of new boss David McGlynn after they won 4-2 against Armadale Thistle.

Blair Henderson helped himself to a double for Bonnyrigg with Shaun Woodburn and Kevin McLeish also finding the net as former Linlithgow striker Robbie Feeney twice replied for the visitors.

Elsewhere Sauchie also found the net four times as they moved out of the relegation zone with a comfortable 4-1 win against Lochee United at Beechwood Park.

Veteran striker Colin Samuel bagged a brace for the Clackmannanshire side with Steven Kiczynski and Darren Cummings also scoring in a win which Sauchie boss Fraser Duncan hopes will kick-start his team’s season.
