Elgin City 4-4 Bo'ness United

An incredible match at Borough Briggs ended with Elgin and Bo'ness sharing eight Scottish Cup goals.

Elgin, bottom of League Two, were 3-0 up when Brian Cameron crashed in a double after Mark Nicolson's opener.

But the Juniors came roaring back after the break, with substitutes Kieran Anderson and Nicky Walker netting, before Darren Gribben equalised.

Shane Sutherland edged the hosts in front again but Andy Scott fired the visitors level nine minutes from time.
