Wins for Stenhousemuir and Clark Eriksson Fury were the highlights of a mixed weekend for sports teams.

Martyn Corrigan led his Warriors side to a stunning Ramsdens Cup upset at Dens Park, where the tournament’s second-favourites were knocked out on penalties by the Ochilview side.

Sean Higgins’ strike levelled Peter MacDonald’s goal and it boiled down to penalties where Sean Lynch hit the decisive spot-kick.

Stenhousemuir could face Rangers, Queen of the South, Annan Athletic or Raith Rovers in the semi-finals.

Raith left it late to defeat Falkirk with a goal from Greig Spence, and there was defeat for the other Falkirk club - with the rugby team falling heavily at home to Marr FP.

The match was switched to the Sunnysiders’ CALA Park home after a fire at the opposition’s Troon clubhouse but the upset didn’t affect the Ayrshire outfit who ran out convincing winners.

There was also a defeat at home for Grangemouth Stags when Harris FP visited Glensburgh.

In junior football Falkirk Juniors won 7-1 against Harthill Royal and Camelon edged the local derby with Bo’ness by a single goal at Carmuirs Park.

There was further success for Clark Eriksson Fury as the basketball side ran out 72-55 winners on the opening day of their title defence.

They saw off Glasgow University at the Stevenson building in the city. On Friday night they play their first home game of the season when St Mirren visit the Mariner.
