A SECOND half comeback saw Newtown beat rivals Stow and make the South Cup semi finals on another weather-battered weekend.

Stow were on course for a cup shock at The Greenyards 3G, after going ahead through Hagen Steele before half time.

But the Division B side could not hold off Division A team Newtown, who claimed a 2-1 win thanks to goals from Darren Blacklock and Shaun Quinn.

Tweedmouth Harrow extended their lead at the top of Division B by beating second placed Gala Hotspur 2-0 at Billendean.

Cameron Beasley and Sean Simpson found the net for Harrow.

And Harrow were given another boost when title challengers Duns were beaten 3-0 at Tweedmouth Amateurs.

The Ams opened the scoring through a wind assisted strike from Kyle Wood from within his own half before Kev Lee scored two late second half goals to complete the win in difficult conditions.

Earlston Rhymers' decision to switch their home game against Tweeddale Rovers Colts to the Netherdale 3G Arena paid off as the Royal Blues claimed a 3-1 win.

Danny Simpson bagged two and Scott Rice a third, as Earlston now sit second in Division C, 15 points behind leaders Melrose but with five games in hand.

All remaining games were postponed.
