SUTHERLAND have found out who they will face in the Highlands and Islands League Cup semi final.

The new league leaders will travel north to face Caithness, with Orkney taking on Buckie in the other semi final.

The two matches are scheduled to be played on Sunday, August 18.

The draw was made as Sutherland went into the summer break top of the Highlands and Islands League as they defeated Clachnacuddin 6-0 at Carrbridge.

Bethany Sutherland set the tone when she scored twice in the space of three minutes. Leanne Lothian then found the net with a header to give them a 3-0 at half time.

Sutherland continued their dominance in the second half as they found the net three more times. The first came from the penalty spot after Bethany Sutherland was fouled in the box.

Lothian stepped up to get her second of the match.

Franci Hutchison made it 5-0 when she nodded home a header and Siobhan MacBeath completed the rout when she tucked one away from the back post.

The win took Sutherland top of the league after previous leaders Ross County suffered a shock 5-2 defeat to Caithness in Castletown.

Carly Erridge hit a hat-trick after captain Sophie Kinghorn had opened the scoring. Donna Majilton was also on target for Caithness, for whom Kerrie Martin had three assists.

The results means Sutherland have moved two points clear at the top of the league on 22 points with Buckie in second place on 20 and Ross County in third on 19 points.

Elsewhere in the Highlands and Islands League on Sunday, Buckie ran riot with a 9-1 win over Ross and Cromarty and Orkney ran riot with an 11-3 win at Nairn St Ninian.
