Saltires batsman Ian Moran blasted a brilliant century yesterday to propel Uddingston into the semi-finals of the Scottish Cup as they demolished Dunfermline at Bothwell Castle Policies. Moran struck 119 to inspire the hosts to a tally of 274 for nine - by far the highest of the day - before the Pars were rolled over for just 110 in 35 overs. He was given stout support by Scott Dalgleish (37) and David Bill (34), who then snapped up three wickets along with skipper Ricky Bawa. For Dunfermline, Waqas Ahmed and rookie Matt Bremner each had a three-scalp haul.
Peter Wooden turned in a potent all-round display to guide Carlton to glory against Ferguslie at Meikleriggs. The former Arbroath hero scored an unbeaten 68 in tricky conditions to guide his side to 162 for seven and he then picked up three cheap wickets to send Feegie hurtling to 126 all out.
Holders Greenock edged out Clydesdale by two wickets in a low-scoring tussle. Greenock seemed to be in complete control after shooting out the home troops for 112, but they made heavy weather of the pursuit. In the end, they were indebted to pro Tim McIntosh, who ground out a crucial 39.
West of Scotland followed up their shock triumph over Grange by snuffing out the challenge of Poloc at Shawholm. The southsiders could only post a target of 90 and, thanks to 44 by Barrington Rowland, the visitors secured their place in the last four. Their other prime performer was left-arm seamer Ian Cran, who ripped the heart out of Poloc with figures of five for 18.
