BSC GLASGOW held on to reach the semi-final of the Lowland League with a 3-2 victory over East Kilbride.

Tom Bentham’s double and an Edin Lynch own-goal secured the win for last season's runners-up at the Indodrill Stadium.

Despite late strikes from Sean Winters and Kieran Gibbons for the visitors, it was BSC who progressed.

Manager Stephen Swift said: “I thought we were excellent today and deserved to go through.

“East Kilbride have a lot of dangerous players and it was a nervy finish but we held on well.

“We were disappointed to finish third in the league and getting through to the final of the cup would make up for it.”

BSC will face Selkirk next Saturday at Yarrow Park after Ian Fergus’s side beat Edusport Academy 3-1.

Sean McKirdy, Jordan Hopkinson and Dale Baxter all scored for the home team in the second half.

Fergus said: “Edusport have shown all season that they are a quality team and they were on top for periods of the game today.

“I thought we were excellent, though, and when we created chances we took them.

“We now have a semi-final to look forward to which is great for the boys.”

Clement Jordane netted Edusport's consolation.

A Craig Homes penalty and a late Michael Wallace strike gave Cumbernauld Colts a 2-0 win over Gala Fairydean Rovers to also progress.

The defeat for Gala heralded the end of five years in charge for manager Steven Noble.

He told us: "We were very much in the game but the roll of the ball went against us.

"My priority in my last season was to make sure we maintained our place in the Lowland League and all credit to the players for achieving that."

Colts will host Stirling University on Saturday in the semi-final after they beat Gretna in extra time at Raydale.

Paul McCafferty was on target twice in the 5-4 victory for the Students.

*In the first-leg of the pyramid play-off between Spartans and Cove Rangers, it was the Highland League team who took a commanding lead into the second leg.

A Paul McManus double and goals from Mitch Megginson and Eric Watson gave Cove a huge advantage going into Tuesday's leg at Ainslie Park.

The winners will face Cowdenbeath to decided who plays in League Two next season.
