In the cup competition League leaders Edusport Academy were at home to Crichton and as expected were pushed all the way by a very competent visiting side who ran out the winners by the odd goal in three.

With the teams drawing one all at the break, prolific scorer Darren Johnstone scored the all important winner which saw the Dumfries progress.

In the South of Scotland League Wigtown and Bladnoch played Abbey Vale on the 3G pitch at Dumfries High School with the home side coming out on top in a two goals to nil victory.

Daniel Thom put Vale ahead in the first half with a twenty yard shot and Elliot Harris ensured the three points near the end of the match.

Newton Stewart were looking to hit the winning trail again in their visit to Lockerbie to play Mid-Annandale and did so in an exciting four goals to three victory played out in atrocious overhead conditions.

Mids, who are on a good run of form at present, went ahead in the twelfth minute when Sean Dunbar shot home through a ruck of players but following some good outfield play 
Newton striker Robert MIddleton found the net to square the match.

Mids however fought back and Dunbar restored his sides lead before Middleton struck again to send the teams in at the break all square.

Dunbar completed his hat-trick before Johnny Fisher once again levelled the match and with the weather deteriorating and play flowing from end to end the visitors snatched the winner in time added on when Middleton headed home at the back post to complete his hat-trick and his sides narrow victory.
