Rovers go nap to progress in Haig Gordon

Heston hit 5 @ Creetown
It was a great evening for football at Castlecary Park although a bumpy pitch made sure that good football was not really the order of the day.
Heston were quick out of the traps and opened the scoring in only 5 minutes with RUSSELL JARDINE
firing home a left footed effort from 12 yards (his 23rd of the season) after good work by Armstrong on the Heston left created the chance for Hestons top scorer.Armstrong
doubled the lead at the midway point of the opening period after Murray produced a fine save from a Douglas effort only to see Armstrong react quickest to tap home the rebound.
Creetown fought their way back into the match and they reduced the deficit 7 minutes from the interval with Fraser Anderson firing into the top corner from a cross from the left.
Heston restored the 2 goal advantage in the 43rd minute after Middlemiss
found space in the Creetown box before slotting home after the home defence failed to clear their lines.Half Time 1 - 3Douglas
put the game beyond the home side 7 minutes into the 2nd half rolling the ball into an empty net after beating the Creetown offside trap.
Rovers went nap 15 minutes from time after a combination of Middlemiss and Hughes forced a defender to put the ball into his own net off the underside of the bar.
FT 1 - 5
Heston now face St Cuthbert Wanderers on 29th April at Palmerston in the 3rd round.
