Forres Mechanics 4, Brora Rangers 1

BRORA Rangers were put to the sword by league leaders Forres Mechanics despite putting up some stiff resistance for most of the first half at Mosset Park last Saturday.

There was little in the way of goalmouth action for over half an hour.

All the action came in the last six minutes of the half. Brora’s Liam Baxter fired a shot just over the crossbar and a minute later team-mate Gary Kerr headed wide of target following a long-throw from Blair Lawrie.

But it was the home side who took the lead in the first minutes of stoppage time when Kevin Duguid cut inside and slotted the ball in at the near post.

Forres still had time to add another goal before the break when Kyle Scott got on the end of a Willie Barron cross to steer the ball into the net.

Brora came out in determined mood at the start of the second half and Alexander MacLeod was unlucky with a header which clipped the outside of the post.

However, it was Forres who stuck again on the hour mark.

Barron picked up a loose ball 25 yards out and curled a shot into the roof of the net.

Forres added a fourth for good measure in the 79th minute when Ryan Green headed home an inch-perfect cross from Simon Allan.

Brora netted an injury time consolation when Ryan Rutherford helped a Gary Kerr shot-cum-cross over the line.

Brora Rangers – McCarthy, Finalayson, D MacKay (MacKintosh 24), Edwards, MacKay, Golabek, Lawrie (Rutherford 63), MacLeod (Jones 67), Kerr, Ross, Baxter. Unused subs – Moir, Martin.

On Saturday Brora host Nairn County at Dudgeon Park – kick-off 3pm.
