SCOTTISH League leaders Gracemount continued their dominance - but had to battle hard to overcome a strong Tryst side on Sunday.
There was nothing to choose between the two sides in a close first half with Gracemount leading by one goal at half time. But they went three ahead after a strong start to the second half, and their depth on the bench proved vital to holding on to win. Robert Schotten scored 15 for Gracemount, while Bruce Hunter scored 11 for Tryst. Second-placed Glasgow beat Cumbernauld in third 32-19 after a strong start which saw them five ahead after just ten minutes.
While Glasgow only had eight players for the game, Cumbernauld also struggled with many young and inexperienced players. Seven goals each from Danos Sagias, Bora Sieng and Christoph Boettger made up the bulk of Glasgow’s goals, while James Jule and James Johnstone scored seven each for Cumbernauld. EK82 battled hard in search of their first league win, but they could not overcome a Liberton side who were aiming to finish fourth in the league and went down 27-23. Colin Reid scored seven for East Kilbride, while for Liberton Zellen Johannes scored ten.
