By Craig Christie


BUCKIE Thistle eased past Moray coast rivals Lossiemouth to stay top of the Highland League.

Jags were too strong for bottom side Lossie, scoring four times in the first half in a 5-0 win at Grant Park.

Kevin Fraser opened the scoring before Scott Adams scored twice in quick succession, his second double in two matches to bring his tally for the campaign to 10.

Sam Urquhart added two more including a late penalty to keep Buckie at the summit.

Brora Rangers are three points behind in second though they had to work hard for their 3-2 win at Keith.

The Cattachs led 2-0 at half time but Cammy Keith pulled one back, and after Brora notched a third late on, Keith added his second to keep the game in the melting pot.

Forres Mechanics ended a five-game run without victory by thumping lowly Fort William 6-0.

Defender Callum Howarth scored the only Cans goal of the first half, before the floodgates opened after the break.

Andy MacRae added two and also missed a penalty, while a second Mechanics spot kick saw Alan MacPhee strike the bar, before a retake was ordered and captain James Ross slammed the ball home.

MacPhee was also on target with his seventh of the season and Ross County loan youngster Declan Hughes completed the rout.

Deveronvale picked up only their second league win of the campaign, easily winning at derby rivals Turriff.

Grant Noble's goal was rich reward for a fine first half display by Vale, and Colin Charlesworth netted twice after the break to ease the visitors to the three points.

Huntly's improved form continued with a goalless draw at home to fifth placed Formartine United, with both sides finishing the game with ten men.

Formartine had Liam Strachan sent off on the hour while Huntly skipper Ross Still was dismissed near the end.

Inverurie moved into third with a 1-0 win at Strathspey Thistle.

Nairn County scored after 14 seconds on their way to a 2-1 win against Clach.
