NECN Contributor1 24th March 2018 sport Comments Off on Football: Lowland League roundup

Civil Service Strollers made the trio to Alloa to face BSC Glasgow – who are still in with a chance of winning the Lowland League.

Martin Grehan put the home side in front in the opening minutes after being left unmarked at the near post when a corner was played in. Grehan had the simple task of heading the ball into the net from close range.

BSC got a second within a minute after a Strollers defender handled in the box.

Stevie Murray stepped up and sent Stuart Burnside the wrong way with the penalty kick.

The home side went in at half time worthy of their two goal advantage.

Civil almost pulled one back midway through the second half when a ball was crossed into the box and Matthew Cunningham, who started on the bench, got on the end of it with a terrific header which had the keeper rooted but the ball hit the woodwork before the keeper gathered it.

Paulo Buzzi made it four goals in four games for the North Edinburgh club when he came on from the bench. He got on the end of a crisis and his perfectly placed header looped over the keeper and into the net.

Civil threw everything they had at getting an equaliser but it wasn’t to be.

Elsewhere Spartans made the trip to Midlothian to face Whitehall Welfare in a must win game to keep their title dreams alive.

David Greenhill put the Ainslie Park men in front when he got on the end of a pass from Willie Bremner before Greenhill fired the ball into the net.

On the hour mark Jamie Dishington doubled Spartans lead with a perfectly placed shot that left the keeper with no chance.

Kerr Dodds pulled one back for the Ferguson Park men but Spartans secured all three points.
