There were 100 goals scored in Saturday's Scottish Cup first round ties as 22 sides booked their place in Sunday's second round draw.

Bonnyrigg Rose made it safely through but had to wait until the 90th minute before eventually killing off Highland League side Forres Mechanics.

The Lowland League leaders took the lead in the first period through Kieran McGachie but the hosts battled until the end before George Hunter’s late goal wrapped up a 2-0 victory for Robbie Horn's men.

Brora Rangers eased through with a 6-0 win over Tynecastle at Meggetland which included a Jordan Macrae hat-trick with the hosts left to rue a missed penalty when the score was still 1-0.

The most eye-catching result of the day was East Kilbride's 10-1 away victory over Coldstream while St Cuthbert Wanderers secured a resounding 8-0 victory over Wigtown & Bladnoch.

Bo'ness United faced a long trip north to Wick Academy, who will now make the return trip after a 2-2 draw that saw the visitors play the last 10 minutes with nine men.

Perhaps the results of the round came in Fraserburgh where Sauchie Juniors, competing in the competition for the first time, knocked out the current leaders of the Highland League thanks to a 2-1 victory.

There were almost 800 fans in attendance for Penicuik v Tranent as the co-leaders of the East of Scotland Premier Division went head-to-head and it was the away side who progressed thanks to a 3-1 win.

Meanwhile, in the Ayrshire derby, a terrific second half fightback from 1-0 down sent Auchinleck Talbot into the second round at the expense of hosts Irvine Meadow in front of a bumper crowd.

Civil Service Strollers won 3-0 at Golspie Sutherland while Spartans went down 1-0 at home to Lowland League rivals Gala Fairydean Rovers.

Formartine United, who reached the third round last season before being knocked out by Motherwell, were held to a 2-2 draw at home by Cumnock Juniors.
