South Scene round up with John McNaught

Elsewhere, third placed St Cuthbert Wanderers were expected to give their goal difference a boost when they travelled to play bottom placed Dumfries YMCA. But this was not the case winning by a slender one goal in a seven goal encounter. YMCA were two goals to the good through Ryan Johnstone in the first fifteen minutes but Saints fought back to level the match by the interval with two goals from Kieran Kenny. Stewart Gall put the home side ahead again at the start of the second half but Roman Soltys levelled the match again in the sixty fifth minute. A minute later Saints Scott Alexander scored a goal that proved to be the winner. Upper Annandale started as favourites to take the three points from their match against Nithsdale Wanderers at Moffat but had to be content to share the points in a goal-less draw. Heston Rovers entertained neighbours Crichton at Palmerston Park and went down by three goals to nil while Creetown went down by the odd goal in three against Lochar Thistle at Castle Cary Park with Micky Sutherland hitting the net for the home side. Abbey Vale had Edusport Academy as their visitors to New Abbey and although the home side are enjoying a good run of form they were beaten by two goals to nil with two second half goals from Boubacar Ndaw and Michael Martins.
