Penicuik were rocked back on their heels on Saturday when the visitors opened the scoring in 45 seconds through trialist Mowatt.

Penicuik gradually got over the initial shock and in the 10th minute Lister came close with a first time volley that flashed past the junction of the bar and post.

Penicuik equalised in the 15th minute, when McPartlin’s driving run set up Harris who steered the ball past keeper Cormack into the net.

In the 22nd minute, a quickly taken Penicuik corner kick saw McDermott’s cross into the box headed narrowly past the upright by McCulloch. Minutes later, a neat interchange between Ross and Harris set up McPartlin, but he dragged his shot wide of the target. Then a long ball by Penicuik was held up by Harris who then laid it into the path of Ross whose strike was turned round the post by keeper Cormack. Just before half time, the hard working Killin blasted the ball over the bar from just outside the penalty area.
