Nine man Legion made an exit from the South of Scotland Cup following a penalty shootout at Wilton Lodge Park which the visitors won 4-3.

Earlier Dalmore had opened the scoring with an early goal, before Andrew McFarlane put Legion on level terms in nodding home a Liam Lavery free kick.

Legion were then reduced to ten men when Steven Lowe was dismissed for a foul and minutes later Liam Lavery, as well as a Dalmore player, were red carded following an off the ball clash.

With neither side adding to their tally, the tie duly went into extra time, which also failed to produce a goal.

It was then left to penalties to decide the outcome. Darrel Johnstone, Andrew McFarlane and David Fraser all netted for Legion.

Over in Earlston Hawick United also ran out with a share of the spoils in a B Division clash.

United dominated the first half, but apart from taking the lead through a stunning goal from Sean Solley,
who found the net with a superbly struck 40 yard drive, had nothing to show for their efforts.

In the second period Earlston came more into the picture and got on level terms when scoring with a header.

Table topping Tweedmouth maintained their unbeaten record in what turned out to be a hard fought Division C game against Hawick Legion Rovers.

In the first half, Michael Moir and Sean Clarke both came near to scoring for Rovers, as well as John Shankie who rattled the upright with a fierce drive.

Ten minutes from half time Tweedmouth took the lead.

In the second period the Amateurs hit home another two.
