Musselburgh v Easthouses

Easthouses Lily last Saturday held Super League hosts Musselburgh Athletic to a half time 1-1 draw Easthouses had led 1-0 thanks to Mark Brown’s strike and even went 2-1 up in the second half in an impressive display.

Sean Jamieson (ex Newtongrange ) had netted for the Burgh (20 minutes ) to make it 1- 1.

Graham Young then put Lily in front in 55 minutes but that lead only lasted two minutes.

A double from Burgh’s Jackie Myles equalising in 57 minutes then netting a penalty on the hour put the East Lothianers 3-2 ahead. A Steven Thomson free kick put the Burgh 4-2 ahead in 72 minutes before Sean Jamieson netted his own second and the Burgh’s fifth in 76 minutes to see Musselburgh coast home at 5-2!
