Although the weather saw the postponment of yet another two South matches, four still went ahead.

Dalbeattie Star have made it through to the final of this season’s League Cup as they try to win this particular competition three times in succession.

They easily saw off the challenge of Mid Annandale at Galabank 8-0 with Scott Milligan bagging four, Lewis Sloan netting a double and singles for Rab Harkness and Craig Fergusson.

Star will now have to wait to see who they play in the final, with the Heston Rovers versus Threave Rovers being one of the victims of the wet weather which made Maryfield unplayable.

There were three South of Scotland League matches played.

Newton Stewart moved up into third place in the table following their 6-0 victory over Creetown at Blairmount Park.

The home side were leading 5-0 by the half-time break with Micky Sutherland scoring twice and Lewis Dunn, Jason Galacher and Martyn Henry adding singles. Sutherland completed his hat-trick in the second half to give the Creesiders a comfortable victory.

At Sanquhar, Davy Kennedy gave Nithsdale a slender one-goal lead before the break in their match against Abbey Vale but Stuart Cameron scored a second-half equaliser to see the sides sharing the points.

The points were also shared at Trammondford Park where Wigtown and Bladnoch and St Cuthbert Wanderers played out a 2-2 draw.

Robert Jamieson gave the home side the lead early in the first half with a header but ex-Wigtown player Roddy Cooksley equalised just before the interval. Another ex-Wigtown player, Barry Whyte, gave Saints the lead three minutes after then restart but Mark Whorlow levelled the match 20 minutes from time.
