A goal late in each half gave Tranent all the points and saw Bo’ness United lose their third game in a row while dropping to fifth place in the table, (writes John Spowart).
Bo’ness competed well in a frantic first half and had a good early chance, with Lewis McArthur heading over from a Tom Grant corner.
There was action at both ends, but five minutes before half time it was Tranent who made the breakthrough when a low cross from Dean Brett went beyond the far post where Broque Watson had space to sidefoot his shot into the net.
Tranent upped their game in the second half and Bo’ness struggled to make an impact. They did get forward at times but were unable to convert, and lost a second goal in time added on. From a throw deep inside their own half, Bo’ness were unable to clear and the ball was played into the box where Cammy Ross was quickest, nipping in to slot into the empty net.
Bo'ness: Dibaga, Irving, Macaulay, Travis, McArthur, Gemmell (Henderson 74), Stenhouse, Foster, Dalziel (Johnston 60), Grant (Mooney 60). Porteous. Subs (not used): Stevenson, Malcolm, Kennedy SG Ritchie

Bo'ness Athletic came out on top in an eight-goal thriller despite playing the entire second half with only 10 men after having a player dismissed.
Athletic looked to have the game sewn up when they scored three goals in as many minutes, scored by Blair Woodburn, Chris Ogilvie and Michel Weir. And they went further ahead when Weir scored his second of the game.
Thistle pulled a goal back before Ryan Robertson restored Athletic's four-goal lead, but the red card before half-time gave Thistle at least a glimmer of hope.
The home side did manage to make their numerical advantage count after the break, pulling back two goals, but Athletic held out for the win.
