Reece Agnew opened the scoring for Wigtown in the 20th minute with Richard Jones doubling the score just on half time with a strike from 25 yards.

In the second half Creetown’s Mickey Sutherland was fouled in the penalty box and dusted himself down to score from the spot to give his side hope but the visitors ran out winners to keep their unbeaten record intact.

Upper Annandale produced the score of the day when they surprisingly beat Threave Rovers by a single goal with Peter Pagan scoring in the 56th minute. Nithsdale and Edusport shared eight goals at Sanquhar with the visitors going nap and the home side scoring three times through Logan Hamilton, Tommy Thomson and Keiran Kenny.

Lochar Thistle and Heston Rovers locked horns at Maxwelltown High School with the visitors winning 3-1. An own goal from Kieran Roan gave the visitors a two goal cushion at the break. Struthers added another after the re-start with Craig Muir scoring a consolation goal for the home side. Abbey Vale scored eight goals with only two in return when they played hosts to Dumfries YMCA. Struan Parker opened the scoring with an early goal with Dylan Cairnie adding a second in the 20th minute. Further goals from Parker, Cairnie, Chris Mellon, Curtis Telfer, Brodie Turner and David Ruddick ensured a comfortable victory for the New Abbey side. Aaron Jardine scored a second for the visitors in a team that although bottom of the league continue to keep competing well.
