Lossie off the mark in high scoring show

LOSSIEMOUTH were the Highland League’s high scorers on Saturday thanks to a 5-2 success at Huntly.

And for the fourth time this season Buckie Thistle came from behind to grab a result.

Lossie had five different players on target at Christie Park as they bounced back in style from their derby defeat at Rothes.

Grant Mitchell, Kevin Flett (penalty), Darren Bailey, Scott Dunn and Scott Miller all netted to give the Coasters their first league points of the season.

New signing Andrzej Kleczkowski scored twice in Buckie’s 4-1 win at home to Clach, with Chris Angus also managing two goals to cancel out Clach’s opener.

Jags have now won three and drawn one of their opening four fixtures, each time after going a goal behind.

Keith’s good start continued as they edged out Fort William 1-0 at Kynoch Park.

An early red card for the Lochaber men meant they had to play most of the match with only ten men, while Keith had start striker Mike Ewen sent off for two bookings after the break.

Summer signing Fraser Strachna headed in the only goal of the game just four minutes from time.

Rothes lost 4-1 at Formartine United, though Callum McIntosh scored a cracker in the first half to level the scores at 1-1.

Forres Mechanics’ poor start continued with a 3-1 loss at Cove Rangers. Duncan Jones’ spectacular free kick strike was nothing more than a consolation for the Can Cans late on.

Champions Brora Rangers already look huge favourites to retain their crown after five first half goals earned a crushing 5-0 win at Deveronvale.

Inverurie Locos joined the Sutherland side on three wins out of three, though they had to dig deep to edge out battling Strathspey Thistle 3-2.

And Ross Jack’s Turriff maintained their 100% record with two goals in the last minute of their match at home to Wick Academy, which they won 2-1.

Fraserburgh beat Nairn County 2-1 in the other game on Saturday.
