Des Sutherland scored another hat-trick to take his total to 71 for the season, with goalkeeper turned goal machine Michael Fenton grabbing a double.

Other goals came from Andy Hardie, Allan Nicol and Callum Jardine.

The match is the last played by Pencaitland in the BAL, as the East Lothian club moves to the Lothian and Edinburgh League next season.

Rovers have already won the league but could yet meet Pencaitland again in the final of the Waddell Cup.
