SCOTTISH CUP 1st ROUND:
DUNDEE TIGERS 6 SOLWAY SHARKS 5

A GREAT recovery from Dundee Tigers saw them book a place in the Scottish Cup second round, where they’ll face Dundee Comets after edging past Solway Sharks.

Michael Corbett put the visitors in front, but Scott Marr levelled for Tigers before two from Bob Chalmers and a strike by Scott Henderson had Jamie Kerr’s Young side 4-1 up.

Tigers’ comeback began through Daniel Topping followed by Grant Reekie and Robbie Barnett each finding the net to tie the game at four apiece.

Kris Phillips then had the home side in front by the end of the second before Topping opened up a two-goal advantage.

Sharks pulled one back through Gordon Horne to set up a nervy final few minutes, but Tigers held off to make it into the next round.

SNL:
NORTH AYRSHIRE WILD 6 MORAY TYPHOONS 1

TWO of the league’s teams without league points went head to head at Auchenharvie and it was North Ayrshire Wild who broke their duck at the expense of Moray Typhoons in a 6-1 victory.

John Paul Jack put the Typhoons in front on 14 minutes, but the home side came out all guns blazing in the second with Michael Dobson equalising in the opening minute.

Kodi Yates put Wild in front before Michael McAlister struck on the powerplay and North Ayrshire’s lead started to become unassailable.

Daniel Abercrombie made it 4-1 before Dobson notched his second of the game with around 10 minutes to go, with Abercrombie following suit to complete the scoring, making it a 2+3 night for him.

SNL:
KILMARNOCK STORM 2 DUNDEE COMETS 4

DUNDEE COMETS moved into third in the SNL table following this win over Kilmarnock Storm, who are still without a point and without a win.

Gordon Nelson was first to find the net for the visitors as the Comets took the lead just after the three and a half minute mark.

Storm hit back early in the second period as Ryan Parkin equalised, but Dundee took control of the game, firing in three before the second break to kill the game off.

Kris Inglis restored the lead with Ross Johnston and Lewis Gold making sure as Comets put daylight between themselves and the hosts.

Fraser Turner’s goal early in the third proved to be nothing more than a consolation as Dundee returned to Tayside with the points.
