LUKE Gierus scored the winner as Gala Hotspur squeezed into round three of the Waddell Cup at Netherdale.

On a difficult pitch against a spirited Gala Athletic side, Gierus had an early chance to score, but blasted over, while Lee Brown also missed the target for Spurs. Scott Crawford then had to make a great stop to deny Athletic a half-time lead.

Rob Young missed for Spurs in the second period before he set up Gierus to score from close range.

Athletic pushed for a goal which would have forced extra time, but failed, meaning Spurs progress to play Newtown.
