DARYL Burdett scored his first goal for Langlee Amateurs to help them into the semi-finals of the South of Scotland Cup.

The former Selkirk and Gala Fairydean Rovers midfielder scored the first in a 2-0 win over Duns Amateurs, which was played at Kelso High 3G pitch to allow the game to go ahead in the face of Storm Dennis.

Danny Bolton added a second for Langlee, who ended Duns’ seven game winning run and became the first Borders Amateur team to make it into the last four of the competition.

Langlee are joined by Lesmahagow who thumped Avendale 4-0 in North Lanarkshire.

The two remaining quarter finals – Newtown against Stow and Pathhead’s clash with Hawick Waverley – were victims of the Storm Dennis and will try again this weekend.

The only Border Amateur League game to survive the weather was at Netherdale 3G Arena as Gala Fairydean Rovers and title-chasing Melrose played out a 2-2 draw in Division C.

Melrose opened the scoring through Kieran Crawford who latched onto goalkeeper’s Euan Reilly kick, and Crawford added a second soon after.

But Martin Gibson and Brem Kirk both found the net before half time to pull Gala level.

There was no further scoring in the second half, although Melrose player Jamie Richardson was forced off with a head injury.

It leaves Melrose 16 points clear at the top of Division C, although fourth placed Earlston Rhymers have six games in hand on their local rivals.
