Last Saturday the first round of the Haig Gordon cup dominated South of Scotland football with some very interesting results.
The contest at New Abbey where Abbey Vale locked horns with present league leaders Wigtown and Bladnoch resulted in a 3-1 victory for the visitors with goals from Calum Scott and Reece Agnew added to an own goal enough to see Wigtown safely through to round two.
Creetown entertained Upper Annandale at Castle Cary Park for a match that saw the visitors progress 3-0 while St Cuthbert Wanderers travelled to Dumfries to play Dumfries YMCA and recorded an easy 6-1 victory.
Galabank saw Edusport Academy playing hosts to an ever improving Threave Rovers side and in a close contest Edu won the tie by the odd goal in three with Shaun Milligan finding the net for the Castle Douglas side. The match at Lockerbie where Mid-Annandale entertained Lochar Thistle was another tie that looked fairly even with Lochar running out victors by a single goal scored by Lee Martin at the back post on the hour mark. Heston Rovers travelled to Sanquhar to play Nithsdale Wanderers and won quite easily in the end 6-1 to give the Dumfries side its sixth victory in their last seven starts.
