The very young age of the team.

Well done to the 17 year old keeper for saving 2 pens and young lads for having the bottle to steady themselves from a crazy last 10 minutes and see it through.

Civil Service Strollers 5-0 Edinburgh Uni and Vale of Leithen 3-0 Preston sends those teams into QFs.

Gretna 5-0 Ormiston sets up an away tie at Peebles in R2, while Whitehill will go on to host the winner of Spartans v Kelty.
