BUCKIE Thistle were the biggest winners on a day when goals were in plentiful supply in the Highland League.

The champions swept past Brora Rangers 4-0 at Victoria Park.

David MacRae and Gary Clark gave them a 2-0 interval lead.

Paul Napier (64) and Zander Sutherland late on secured the points.

Elsewhere, Forres Mechanics twice came from behind to beat Turiff Utd 4-2 at Mosset Park.

Mark Cowie and Ross Anderson, sandwiched either side of a Scott Moore goal, saw Turriff lead at the break.

However, Lee Fraser levelled early in the second half and Simon Allan put Forres ahead for the first time from the penalty spot. Kyle Scott wrapped up the points late on.

Huntly slumped to a 4-0 defeat at home to Nairn County. Trailing 1-0 to a Wayne Mackintosh goal in the first half, Dave McGinlay's side conceded three goals in the closing 15 minutes through Steven Mackay (2) and Robbie Duncanson.

Just days after putting Inverurie Locos out of the Aberdeenshire Cup, Keith were beaten 1-0 at Kynoch Park by the Locos, who scored the winner after just six minutes through Clark Bain.

The only game that failed to produce any goals was the Moray derby at Mackessack Park where Rothes and Lossiemouth played out a goalless draw. Ashley Grant for Rothes and Lossie's Martin McMullan were both sent off.

The other results saw Formartine come from 3-0 down to draw 3-3 with Fraserburgh, Cove Rangers thrashed Fort William 6-0, Clach beat Deveronvale 3-0 and Wick won 3-1 at Strathspey Thistle.
