In Division 1, Kinross Colts left John Dixon Park with all three points following a 3-1 victory over Markinch. The game was all but over after the opening 15 minutes when goals from Smith, Brown and Wardrop saw the visitors, with a strong wind at their backs, race into a 3-0 lead, Markinch had the elements in their favour in the second period but couldn’t claw back the deficit and only had a Rowan Kay goal to show for their efforts.

Kennoway Star Hearts chalked up a rare away win in a nine-goal thriller at Balmullo against Fife Thistle, a Brown hat-trick and strikes from Wilson and Smith saw the visitors over the line. A Dylan Hopkins double gave Falkland a good 2-1 win over second-placed Rosebank Rangers. The students of St Andrews University proved too strong for Glenrothes Amateurs winning 4-1.
