Football: Lochee Harp, 8; Matrix, 1.
Matrix lost their first game of the season against Lochee Harpt at Dundee on Saturday. Five of the Brechin players were at a wedding and their much weakened side was no match for Harp in this Forfarshire Cup second round replay. The Lochee side lead three-nil hat half time. Matrix showed signs of a fight-back in the second half when they reduced the leeway through Crabb. But this only spurred Lochee on.

Hockey: Brechin, 0; Blairgowrie, 4.
Once again the home forwards must take the blame for this defeat. They were never in the game at all. An overworked Brechin defence managed to keep the score down to two goals in each half.
