Celtic hosted Hibernian in a battle between the top two of the SPFL's Under 20 league. The Hoops began the match level on points with their visitors, but with two games in hand.
The first half saw Celtic pile on the pressure in search of the opening goal. Jamie Lindsay couldn't find the target with an early chance and Hibs goalkeeper Paul Grant then produced a double stop to deny Denny Johnstone and Patrik Twardzik.
At the other end Hibs looked dangerous too, with Jason Cummings and Duncan Watmore coming close.
Paul McMullen was heavily involved in the closing stages of the half, seeing two efforts blocked before the referee brought the first half to an end with the deadlock still intact.
Half Time: Celtic FC 0-0 Hibernian FC
Six minutes into the second half the scoring was opened and it was the plucky visitors who went ahead. An Owain Tudur-Jones header from a corner was cleared, but only as far as the prolific Cummings, who bundled the ball in.
Just a few minutes later the lead was doubled. This time Tudur-Jones was the man on target, placing an excellent free kick into the corner of Leo Fasan's net.
Celtic responded with Eoghan O'Connell going close twice and recent first team call up Liam Henderson being denied by the inspired Grant.
The deficit couldn't be reduced and Hibs celebrated doing the double over the Parkhead outfit. The result leaves Hibs top of the table, three points clear of Celtic (who have two games in hand) and seven clear of Rangers (who have three games in hand). Hibs only have three more games to play and with Celtic and Rangers still due to meet, an exciting final month of the title race is on the way.
Full Time: Celtic FC 0-2 Hibernian FC

Fraserburgh Link-Up Under 15s are gearing up for perhaps, the biggest game of their storied lives on Sunday as they prepare to take on Lanarkshire side Westwood Rovers and coach Colin Simpson looked ahead to the game by saying "I'm really looking forward to the game, it's the biggest game that these guys will have been involved in and they all excited.
"It's been a very good season for us so far however we haven't won anything yet, we will keep doing what we have been doing and hopefully the guys will put in the same effort like they have been.
"The day is all about the boys so hopefully they enjoy the occasion and also get the result, we'll have bigger games still to come yet however we'll take it one game at a time, we'll have full confidence of the guys, it depends on who wants in more. “We’ve had good luck wishes from clubs such as Albion, Dyce, Lewis United and Westdyke.
"It's days like this that the people in the Fraserburgh Link-Up committee dream of, some of the committee have been there for the last 10-20 years and have put in a lot of work to get kids in the local area playing football and working day in day out in order to do that.
"We're in one cup final already and the league is in our hands, hopefully we have a full squad available on the day, we beat Dyce 4-2 a couple of weeks ago and had 5 guys unavailable for the game because of the cold."
"We have been using Fraserburgh United's pitch for training and we also played a game there.
If Link-Up were to progress then they already know who they'll face in the final at the Excelsior Stadium, Airdrie after Hamilton Accies booked their place in the final ten days past beating Blantyre 2-0. Simpson admitted that he doesn't know a lot about their opponents and said "I don't know a lot about Westwood however we have gathered a bit of information from people who have played them in the past.
Simpson is expecting a big crowd to turn up on the day to support his outfit, Colin added "I am expecting a crowd of several hundred to come down to the game."
The game is at Davidson Park, Longside with a 2pm kick off and entry is £3 Adults and £1 Children. Fraserburgh Link-Up, meanwhile are doing a raffle on the day to cover cost of bus trips in previous rounds, the Broch have played five away games on their way to the semi-finals. The places that they have been on their travels to and came out as victors are as follows: Formartine United (2nd round), Barrhead Youth FC Colts (3rd round), Tass Thistle FC (4th round), Wishaw Wycombe Wanderers (5th round), Tynecastle (6th round).
Broch chairperson Elizabeth Dunbar looked ahead to the game by saying “As a committee, we’re all looking forward to the game and everybody at the club is excited, we should get a turn out on the day and we’re hoping 300 people will be at the game, I’ve contacted Fraserburgh FC and there is supporters that will be going down.
“I have every faith in the boys, I was at the game on Sunday against Culter, 1-0 down at half time and came back to win 4-1,I think they can play a lot better however the wind had a big factor, there is a
lot of talent in this Fraserburgh team.
“It’s the 1st time that the club has reached the semi-finals of the Scottish Cup since 2000, I can remember that day however the others won’t as there all new people now.
The commission are doing their part to help out when Elizabeth added “The committee are doing raffles and are also doing the pie stall at half time, Colin has sorted out the pitch and the footballing side of things alongside his other coaching staff.
“Myself and Glyn (The Fraserburgh Link-Up secretary) will be doing fundraising to cost the money for buses to the games away in the Scottish Cup this season, it cost £2,500 for the buses this season.

Forth Valley Schools
Senior National Trophy - Semi Final
12 March 2014
After successfully coming through their groups and quarter final ties, Forth Valley hosted Lothian with both sides knowing victory would seal their place in the SSFA National Trophy final.
Forth Valley made a brighter start to the game but Lothian gradually worked their way in and scored the opening goal from a move down the left wing, involving good work from Jamie Dishington which released Jake McDonald on the left side of the box. He ended up nicking it past the keeper from a tight angle.
Into the second half and Forth Valley came back, scoring two penalties within ten minutes of each other.
Just as it looked like the home side had taken control, Lothian hit back. The visitors equalized immediately after the second penalty with Johnathan Court producing a very good finish after a brilliant disguise pass from Dean Ballantyne on the edge of the box.
The game then went to penalties and Lothian scored four in a row from Sam Jones, Ryan Clarke, Johnathan Court and Calum Windram. The Lothian keeper, Sean Brennan saved penalties 2 and 4 from them, making it a 4 - 2 win on penalties.
The final will be against the winners of the Aberdeen v Glasgow semi final being played on Monday 17 March. It is hoped to play the final during the week beginning 31 March. The venue will not be decided until that game is played.
