Two evenly matched teams produced an excellent, closely fought cup tie.

Midway through the firstst half a fine solo effort from Kieran McNiven gave AC Rovers the lead going into half time. 
Half Time : AC Rovers 2-1 Stonehouse
Not to be deterred the visitors equalised two minutes after the restart. 
The game continued at pace with action at both ends before a double for Jordan Bannan gave the Rovers a two goal cushion, but one again came back came Stonehouse to pull it back to 4-3. 
Bannan completed his hat trick and Jack Cumming added a fine sixth for the home side but still Stonehouse fought on and scored a fourth to make it a grandstand finish. 
No more goals meant a final score of 6-4. Credit must go to both teams for a terrific show .
Full Time : AC Rovers 6-4 Stonehouse
