Thistle kicked off the season campaign with a resounding victory over Newtongrange Star.
It took Bauros 28 seconds to start the scoring with a well finished shot, shortly followed with a fine penalty strike.
Watson made it three with a fortuitous strike that slipped under the keeper, before Knox bagged the fourth, tucking it away at the near post after fine interplay.
Star responded with a goal shortly after the break, before Cartwright re-established the four goal lead with a back post conversion.
Oliver was then brought on and the team responded, with two clever goals in 8 minutes: Chapman and A. Deans completing the rout.
