WEST of Scotland suffered a cruel blow as they gave title-challenging Watsonian's a fright in their narrow loss in Edinburgh. They bowled the Myreside team out for 174 with Ian Cran producing a devastating spell with the ball taking five for 28.
However, West's weak batting - as has been the case all season - let them down once again as despite Neil Bisman's 38, they were denied victory by only two runs.
Meanwhile, Clydesdale's own batting line-up had a day to forget as a dire display at the crease saw them dismissed for a paltry 133 to hand Forfarshire a 37-run victory.
The Titwood side were in the driving seat having restricted the visitors to 170 for nine but despite Qasim Sheikh's half-century, Richard Gallagher's demon bowling (five for 26) saw the Angus side cruise to an easy win.
Elsewhere, in Division One, having missed out on promotion the pressure was off Poloc to perform and they did that in fine style in a 24-run win over Ayr.
Overseas amateur Carl Huyser and Kiwi pro fessional Fraser Quarterman were in fine form with the bat as both hit scores of 94 and 54 respectively as the Shawholm side closed on 254 for five.
This was followed by an all-round display of tight bowling which frustrated Ayr who simply ran out of overs to get anywhere near Poloc's match-winning total.
This weekend sees the final round of fixtures with the local derby at Titwood between Clydesdale and West of Scotland being the main highlight.
Poloc meanwhile will entertain Drumpellier. Both matches start on Saturday at 1pm.
