Lenzie rounded off their league campaign with a solid victory.
The defending East Dunbartonshire champions took a grip of the game early on. Boclair goalkeeper Grant Mackie had to be alert to stop efforts from Greg Burns and Lewis Beveridge.
The visitors also had to defend several set pieces, but they did so resolutely.
Lenzie’s Andy Henderson did have the ball in the net midway through the half but he was ruled offside.

Seven minutes after the break, a Lenzie reshuffle paid off when John McCrae struck a sublime left-foot shot to open the scoring.
McCrae then turned provider, finding Greg Burns who added number two with a perfectly-placed finish.
To their credit, Boclair kept plugging away. But they were unable to make a dent in the stuffy Lenzie rearguard and the home side saw out the game to take the points.
Skipper Jonnie Walker was the Lenzie Player of the Day.
