Football: Brechin City 0, Albion Rovers 0.
After a rather shaky start, City at Glebe Park on Saturday dug in and fought so hard through the second half that Rovers must have considered themselves lucky to get away with a point. With better finishing, the homesters could have had a bunch of goals.

Football: Brechin Victoria 0, Elmwood 1.
Elmwood scored the only goal in the second round Scottish Junior cup tie. The goal came in 16 minutes, with a Westwater shot beating Giles. Vics attacked but Christ held Beedie’s header. Giles held a 10-yard effort from Healey. Vics came more into the game in the second half, but they could not get the equaliser.
