Madden’s had no such luck at home against Hibs B who beat them 5-3. Hibs got off to a flying start with wins in the first three of the evening for Jim Rowland, Niall McVerry and Chris Craven. Gerard O’Connell pulled one back for Madden’s but Hibs won two of the remaining four games and that was enough to secure both points.
