SCOTTISH CUP QUARTER FINAL:
DUNDEE COMETS 2 DUNDEE TIGERS 3

GRANT REEKIE’S winner with three minutes to go settled this Scottish Cup tie that saw Dundee Tigers overcome their city rivals in another knockout tournament.

After beating Dundee Comets in the Autumn Cup earlier in the season, the Tigers did it again to move into the semi finals.

Robbie Hill opened the scoring late in the first, but his strike was cancelled out by Scott Geddes before Lewis Gold restored the Comets lead.

However Tigers kicked on and Scott Marr levelled the tie at 2-2 in the third to set up a grandstand finish, where Reekie popped up to seal the win and a last four spot.

AUTUMN CUP SEMI FINAL 2nd LEG:
EDINBURGH CAPITALS 7 PAISLEY PIRATES 3
(Edinburgh Capitals won 8-5 on aggregate)

A HAT-TRICK from Sean Donaldson helped secure a final place for Edinburgh Capitals in the Autumn Cup as they overcame Paisley Pirates’ 2-1 first leg lead.

Donaldson levelled the tie with the opening goal of the night on only 12 seconds before adding a second and Sean Beattie, a third after 10 minutes.

Chris Wilson pulled one back for the Pirates, but a goal each from Michael Ireland and Bruce Tait ensured the tie was as good as won in the second period for the Caps.

Haydn Bain scored a second for Paisley, while Joel Gautschi added Edinburgh’s sixth of the night and although Richard Thorp found the net for the visitors, Donaldson completed his hat-trick to clinch the win.

Autumn Cup holders the Caps will now face Dundee Tigers in the final later in the season.

SNL:
KIRKCALDY KESTRELS 10 KILMARNOCK STORM 1

KIRKCALDY KESTRELS moved to the top of the SNL after crushing bottom of the table Kilmarnock Storm in an emphatic 10-1 win.

The Fife side were four up after the opening 20 minutes as Andy Finlay, Conor Duncan, Chad Smith and Liam Cassidy all found the net.

Graeme Allan, Daryl Venters and Robbie Summers had killed the game off in the second period as the leafs turned into a rout.

Then two more from Cassidy for his hat-trick in the third, either side of Venters’ second of the game moved the scoreline into double figures.

Luke Secmezsoy-Dunn gave Storm something to cheer about with a late consolation.
