LOSSIEMOUTH'S William Hill Scottish Cup hopes were ended by north juniors Culter on Saturday.
Following a 0-0 draw at Grant Park the week before, the Moray men were defeated 3-1 at Crombie Park in the replay.
Culter will now visit Newton Stewart, who beat Fort William 3-1 in the day's other replay.
Yet it was Lossiemouth who looked destined to progress when on-loan Formartine striker Willie Mathers fired them in front six minutes into the second half.
Poor Lossie defending was punished when George McBain rounded keeper Errol Watson to level midway through the half.
The tie was heading for extra time when McBain scored a second for the Aberdonians with a neat solo effort five minutes from time.
Lossie pressed for an equaliser but were caught on the break in stoppage time as Allan Youngson raced clean through to net a decisive third goal.
