Football: Brechin harp, 5; Arbroath Rancel, 4.
This was a top of the table clash and what an exciting game it was, played in the pouring rain. The Harp started in determined fashion and went in front with a Brilliant goal. A pass back to the ‘keeper saw him unluckily lose his feet and Rancel were back in the game. However Harp regained the lead only to see Rancel level again. Yet again, Harp went in front, but Rancel levelled, then took the lead just before half time. The second half was very even with both teams missing chances, before Harp levelled the scores. Both teams went all out for the winner, and it was Harp who got it.

Football: Brechin Boys Club suffered a 5-2 defeat to Dryburgh at home.
