GRETNA 2008 coasted into the second round of the SFA South challenge cup with a 5-0 win over Mid Annandale. Mids were only trailing by a 41st minute David Renyard goal at the interval but there was not stopping them after the turn with Renyard going on to add a second in the 65th minute with Dean Rea grabbing a brace and Dan Rayson getting the fifth.

St CUTHBERT WANDERERS beat Crichton 6-1 after leading by a Ross McCrindle first half goal. McCrindle went on to hit a hat-trick before being taken to hospital with suspected ligament damage. Craig Rudd, Johnny Plunkett and Ally McMillan got the others with Ian Quinn heading a consolation goal for Crichton.

DALBEATTIE STAR moved into the second round also with 7-2 win over Abbey Vale with Clark Chambers hitting two in the last five minutes. Earlier Scott Milligan, Jamie Phillips, Jak Dingwall, Grant Parker and Hugh Cameron all found the net with Robert McCormick and Mark Hay scoring for Vale.

WIGTOWN also cruised through 4-0 over Newton Stewart, GLASGOW Uni beat Fleet Star 3-1 and Nithsdale Wanderers beat Creetown 4-2.

In the South League champions THREAVE ROVERS hammered Stranraer 7-2 at Stair Park


SPARTANS' manager Mike Lawson praised keeper Chris Flockhart for keeping them in the SFA South challenge cup.

For his two penalty saves - one during the game and the other in a penalty shoot-out - saw the cup holders through against Stirling Uni.

Lawson said: "Chris is definitely our hero and he's our man tonight. We're delighted to get through but it wasn't easy.

"They are a good side and fought all the way."

He added: "Chris saved a penalty during the match and then stopped the first of their penalties in the shoot-out and we scored all five.

"It also keeps up our unbeaten run but they kept going to the end."

Spartans went ahead in 13 minutes when Robbie Manson's dangerous free kick was headed into his own net by Creag Robertson. Omar Kader should have made it two but headed Donal Henretty's cross over the bar from three yards.

The students came into the game and just before half time a rocket from Liam Corr took a deflection and flew past Flockhart.

Flockhart pulled off a great penalty save in 70 minutes and after extra time stopped the first Uni penalty as Spartans went on to a 5-3 penalty win.

In the East and North section there were also wins for Civil Service Str, Edinburgh City 4, Selkirk, Easthouses Lily 2, Ormiston, Preston Athletic 5, and in the 2nd Round Vale of Leithen beat Hawick 6-0 and Eyemouth United beat Heriot-Watt Uni 4-3 after extra time.
