Bo’ness United’s league campaign suffered a setback as they lost at Cumbernauld Colts, this result coming soon after the defeat at Celtic B, (writes John Spowart).
The game started well enough with the BUs dominating the play and creating some early chances, Kieran Mitchell heading just wide and Ryan Stevenson bringing out a good save from Colts keeper Ryan Adamson.
Cumbernauld also had a couple of efforts, Kai Kirkpatrick shooting straight at Musa Dibaga and then firing over. Mitchell had other attempts on the Cumbernauld goal, a volley and a chip both going over, but before the break Cole McIntyre saw his shot rattle off the Bo’ness post.
The second half saw a change in fortunes as Cumbernauld took the initiative, and after a couple of cracks they took the lead when Kai Kirkpatrick connected with a cut back to shoot low into the net from the edge of the box.
The home side were now in charge as Bo’ness struggled to match the good play they demonstrated earlier in the match. With seven minutes remaining Cumbernauld scored a second as substitute Zac McKay got on to the end of a cross beyond the far post to angle low past Dibaga.
Bo’ness did get a goal before the end, after Scott Dalziel was brought down in the box, with Ryan Porteous converting from the spot.
At the death Porteous almost brought the BUs level with a free-kick shot that scraped the outside of the post.
Despite the loss Bo’ness stay in third spot but know they must get back to winning ways to maintain their position in that top section of the table.
Bo'ness: Dibaga, Stevenson, Hawkins, Travis, Irving, Henderson (Johnston 62), Mitchell (Porteous 73), Gemmell, Dalziel, Grant, Kennedy (Malcolm 82), Subs (not used): Hamilton, McArthur, Macaulay. SG Ruddy.

After their win away to Caledonian Braves the previous week, Bo'ness United Under 20s were brought back down to earth with a bump.
East Kilbride proved just too strong, scoring five goals before the break and another five in the second half.

Bo'ness Athletic hit back after going behind to claim all three points against a hard-working Peebles Rovers side.
Although they trailed to a goal scored eight minutes before the break, that setback only served to spur Athletic on, and they were ahead before the interval with two quickfire strikes within the space on a minute. Callum Macdonald fired them level and then Ryan Robertson added a second to stun the hosts.
A debut goal from Sandy Cunningham in the 68th minute saw Athletic stretch their lead, but in a game played in dreadful conditions the home side pulled a goal back eight minutes later.
