Thornton Hibs 1 Scone Thistle 1

Both teams were guilty of being shot-shy but after 40 minutes, Sean Fergus’ well struck volley gave the visitors the lead.

The second half was similar to the first in as much as neither ‘keeper was called on too much however Scone’s Josh Gorton played a big part in the Hibs’ equaliser as it was he who brought down Ewan Henderson to allow Shaun Keatings to equalise from the spot in the 76th minute.
