BUCKIE Thistle and Huntly ensured there were no slip-ups as they eased through to the second of the Scottish Cup.
After being held by Rothes and Wigtown and Bladnoch respectively at home last weekend, the pair made sure of their progress with comfortable wins.
The Jags cruised through 4-0 at Rothes with Neil Davidson and Zander Sutherland (2) putting them ahead at the break. Sutherland completed his hat-trick just past the hour mark to seal the win.
Huntly took just seven minutes to get their noses in front at Wigtown after a massive 275-mile journey and it was last weekend's two goal hero, Barry Somers, who was on the mark again.
Polish striker Andrzej Kleczkowski wrapped up the win midway through the second half.
Buckie are now at home to Annan Athletic in the second round while Huntly have a derby match at Inverurie Locos.
