No reprieve for Souters

Edinburgh Uni3

Selkirk1

Selkirk’s Lowland League struggle continued on Saturday when defeat at Peffermill saw them sink to 12th place on the table.

Both keepers were kept busy in a lively opening half-hour and on 42 minutes, Edinburgh took the lead when Jamie Pyper fouled David Oswald inside the box. Duncan Black scored the penalty.

Selkirk responded well and just on half-time Conor Scott crossed for Paul Tansey to head home.

Further goals in the second half from Jack Guthrie and Oswald sealed Selkirk’s fate.
