Football: Matrix, 4; Montrose Roselea, 1.
Matrix attacked right from the kick-off and in 10 minutes, following a good move up the centre, Douglas gave them the lead. Matrix continued to hold the upper hand but Kennedy in Roselea’s goal was in good form. Roselea started the attack in the second half, but Matrix were soon around Kennedy again. After a corner on the right Low nodded the ball down to Douglas who added number two. Annandale netted the rid, before Cargill pulled a goal back for Roselea. However, Annandale scored a fourth to ensure the win for Matrix.
