Glenrothes Amateurs continued their push for promotion at the weekend by edging all three points in a 3-2 win over Freuchie at Dovecot Park.

In contrast, Balgonie Scotia saw their challenge take a dent as they lost out 0-6 to table-toppers Benarty at Warout.

At Quarry Park, Leslie Hearts got the better of Kirkcaldy Rovers for the second week running, like the previous week when Hearts won 4-3, once again there were plenty goals, with this time the home side emerging 5-3 victors.

Glenrothes Strollers picked up a point on the road following a 3-3 draw with FC Bayside.

Buoyed by their first win in the Premier League the previous week, Lomond Vics again added to their points total in a 1-1 draw with Dysart, the result keeps Vics at the foot of the table however.

In the Glendale Plastics League local derby at Treaton Park a solitary first-half strike was enough to give Balgonie Scotia all three points in their clash with Star Hearts.

Hearts are without a game this Saturday while Scotia host Lumphinnans United in the league.

In the Fife AFA Division Two, it is an away day for most of the local sides, Glenrothes Strollers head to St Andrews to take on the students of the United Colleges, Balgonie Scotia visit Queensferry Albert.

Glenrothes Amateurs make the short journey to Markinch to face up to Lomond United, with Carnegie Thistle awaiting Leslie Hearts.

Lomond Vics have a free day.
