Football: Arbroath Vics 2, Matrix 3
Only the switch of centre-half Willie Tocher to centre saved Matrix’s undefeated league record. Matrix were trailing 2-1 until Tocher was moved to lead the attack. He soon equalised and before the final whistle scored the best goal of the match with a terrific shot. Carnegie scored the other Matrix goal.

Football: A short summary of Brechin’s home game with Hamilton at Glebe Park on Saturday would read:
Hamilton - chances, 4; goals, 2; Brechin - chances, 7; goals, 0. The main reason being an off day for the usually sharp shooting Jackie Thoms. Jackie missed at least five easy chances.
