Lossiemouth 5, Fort William 1
LOSSIEMOUTH put on the style as they romped to their first league win of the season.
The Coasters produced a great performance to hammer fellow strugglers Fort at Grant Park.
With just two points from their opening eight games, Stevie Dunn's side needed a big performance and result.
And when the visitors took the lead in the first half, Lossie looked to be on the back foot.
However, Willie Mathers hit a stunning equaliser before centre half Jamie McKinnon bundled in a second before the break.
Lossie stepped up a gear after the interval and McKinnon swept home his second goal when Tony Ross' corner was not properly cleared.
Scott Miller poked home a fourth soon after and skipper Kev Flett thundered in a fifth 20 minutes from the end of the game.
McKinnon had a great chance to claim his first ever hat-trick but failed to hit the target with a header.
A delighted Dunn told 'The Scot': I have been trying to tell the boys all season that they can play good football.
"I told them at half-time to go out and take the game to Fort William. Big Jamie could have had four or five.
"We were keeping the ball well and it was pleasing to get five goals. A lot of teams have been struggling against Fort William. This result has been coming the last few weeks."
Forres Mechanics secured the result of the day with a 1-0 win at Wick Academy, the first team to win at Harmsworth Park in 18 months.
Stuart Soane, signed last week on a three year deal from Formartine, got the goal that won the points for Charlie Rowley's men and made it back to back wins for the Mechanics.
Buckie Thistle warmed up for their Scottish Cup replay at Annan with a 2-1 win at Strathspey Thistle.
Aaron Conway put Buckie ahead in the first half before Craig Macmillan added a second after the interval. Nicholas Stein pulled one back for Strathspey late on.
After an improved performance last week against Huntly, the season took another turn for the worse for Rothes when they were thumped 8-1 at Clach.
Elsewhere, Formartine were 4-1 winners at Huntly and Nairn beat Turriff 2-0 at Station Park.
