Fosters Scottish Amateur Cup
KSC Wolves marched into the fourth round courtesy of a 2-1 win over Edinburgh Premier League side Tollcross Thistle.
The Kilwinning outfit dominated the first half but couldn’t find a way past a visiting keeper who twice saved at the feet of Bryan Boylan, tipped a Michael Wescott shot over the bar and denied Frannie Kilpatrick.
Tollcross came more into it after the break and only an excellent diving save from Wolves keeper Stevie Campbell prevented them from taking the lead.
The goal action was eventually crammed into the last 15 minutes when Wolves were awarded a penalty for handball and Davie Rocks blasted the spot kick high into the net.
Extra time looked likely a minute later when the visiting centre forward headed a corner home but in the 93rd minute Boylan slipped his marker midway inside the Tollcross half and ran on to slam a fantastic shot past the advancing keeper from just outside the box.
Wolves now face a fourth round tie away to former winners Star Hearts of Markinch.

Bottom dogs Lochan were no match for Clark Drive as the Irvine side made light of the heavy surface to run up 5-0 win.
Alan Sloss gave the visitors a 25th minute lead from a Gerry Cavani corner and Kevan Reid cashed in on a good flick-on to make it 2-0 at the break.
Reid and Stuart Walker combined for Stevie Morrison to add a third in 69 minutes and the goal of the game arrived moments later when Cavani and Mark Kelly released Ryan McKie on the left and he cut inside the full back before rifling the ball into the top corner.
Malcolm McDonald was robbed five minutes from time when his shot came back down off the cross bar and bounced over the line only for the ref to wave play on, but he got his reward in the dying seconds when he rounded off the scoring from close range.
Cunninghame continued their good run with a 2-1 home victory over a Girdle Toll United side which enjoyed plenty of possession but could not turn their good football into goals.
The Irvine outfit took an early lead with a John Findlay free kick but the home team soon got back on level terms when Dougie Ellis set up strike partner David Henry.
There wasn’t much between the teams after the break but Cunninghame secured the points when Henry returned the favour for Ellis to fire home the winner.
Dirrans Athletic got back to winning ways with a 3-1 home victory over Glenmuir Thistle.
Jason Stewart gave the Kilwinning side a fourth minute lead when he netted from the spot after Stephen Cochrane was downed in the box and Cochrane got on the scoresheet with a shot from the edge of the area in 18 minutes.
Thistle reduced the deficit with a free kick on the half hour mark however Craig Parker restored Dirrans’ two-goal lead when he headed home a corner minutes after the restart, but for all their pressure after that they were unable to add to their tally.

Goals from Craig Waddell, Paul Stewart, Daryl Gaw, Keith Graham and Matt Strike saw Irvine Town go nap at Craigie, but it was still not enough to take the points as the home side went one better to secure a thrilling 6-5 victory.
