The tempo was high from the first whistle with Rossvale bossing possession and having the better chances that came in the early exchanges.

Rossvale pressed for an equaliser but unfortunately couldn't grab themselves one with the chances created.

In a blistering twenty minute period in the second half, Rossvale fought back and roared into a 3-1 lead after a double from Dickie and a fine free kick from Doherty, gave Rossvale a two goal advantage over Sauchie. 
Rossvale certainly had their tales up and were playing with a lot of energy and some quick football.
They should of increased their lead when Templeman and Hendry both came close, hitting the post.

Sauchie now threw the sink at Rossvale, but clever football from the Bishopbriggs ensured they saw the game out to progress to the next round.
