Lasswade 12, Boroughmuir 47
The Midlothian club’s oral historians recall 1960 as the last occasion these two sides met in Lasswade.
Boroughmuir won 6-3 on that occasion and most Bonnyrigg players and supporters would have settled for a similar margin – in their favour – this time around.
Boroughmuir have been struggling in Premier 1 this year and this allowed a glimmer of hope for the home crowd.
Boroughmuir had other ideas. Having already lost to Currie they knew they needed a big winning margin to have any chance of grabbing one of the berths for second placed teams. They proved too strong for their Premier 3 opponents especially up front where they had full control of their own set pieces and some of the other side’s as well.
