The Cattachs had to fight harder than expected last weekend when they had to come from behind to beat Turriff United 2–1 at Dudgeon Park.

Aaron Reid put Turriff ahead at the start of the second half, but Tony Dingwall and Jordan Macrae scored to keep the points in Sutherland and put Brora in second place.

Formartine United have moved to the top of Highland League on goal difference after smashing Strathspey Thistle 6–1.

Julian Wade opened the scoring after three minutes, but Strathspey equalised just after the half hour mark through Ben Cullen.

Mark Gallagher restored Formartine’s lead on the stroke of half time before they ran riot in the second half with Jonathan Smith scoring a hat trick with Wade grabbing a second to complete the rout.

Buckie Thistle beat champions Fraserburgh 2–1 at Victoria Park.

Buckie took the lead on 53 minutes through Kevin Fraser, before a Paul Campbell strike with 20 minutes left to play levelled the scores.

Andy MacAskill’s 75th minute penalty, after Kieran Simpson fouled Kyle MacLeod, proved to be the winning goal for the Jags.

Clachnacuddin picked up their first win of the season with a 1–0 win at Huntly thanks to Connor Bunce.

Deveronvale picked up their first win with a 2–0 victory against Lossiemouth.

Brechin City won 1–0 at Forres Mechanics with Wick Academy beating Keith 1–0 at Harmsworth Park.

Inverurie Locos were held to a 1–1 draw by newly promoted Banks O’Dee at Harlaw Park.

Tomorrow, Brechin City and Formartine United clash at Glebe Park.

Buckie head to Lossiemouth, while Inverurie Locos travel to Rothes and Fraserburgh take on Wick Academy.

Banks O’Dee will have home advantage against Huntly, while Turriff United host Keith.

Strathspey Thistle host Deveronvale and Nairn take on Forres.
