Thistle take advantage in youth league

Lochar Thistle took advantage of being the only Under 17 fixture to survive the weekend weather with a fine 5-2 win to send themselves clear at the top.

Visitors Terregles took the lead through McAulay McQueen but a Habib Ullah brace turned the match round, with Dylan Neil giving Thistle a cushion. Terregles reduced the deficit from the penalty spot just before half time but Ali Baird grabbed Lochars fourth and Habib Ullah completed his hat trick with an overhead kick.

Terregles stayed top of the Under 15s with a fine win over Greystone Rovers thanks to an Adam Uphill double and counters from Liam Watson, Euan Davidson and Jordan Jones. Annan Athletic stay second after a thumping win over Heston Rovers while third placed Galloway Thistle scored six without reply at Annan Colts. Lochar Thistle also stay in the chase with a victory by a similar scoreline at Threave Rovers. A Dylan Cairnie volley and left foot strike from Steven Kennedy were added to by Ben Wilson and following several half time changes, Euan Donowho, Hayden Edgar and Cairan Nicol all added to the goals.

In the Under 13s the Lochar Thistle freight train kept running with a 6-1 win at Heston Rovers, while Greystone Rovers recorded an impressive victory over Annan by the same score. East End picked up their second victory of the season with a big home win at the expense of Dalbeattie Star.
