Hockey: Brechin, 1; Harris Academy, 4.
With the home defence floundering in the mud, it was no surprise when Harris took an early lead, and, quickly following another goal, held it up to the interval. In the second half Brechin began to find their feet and eventually netted through Anderson; but not before the visitors had added another couple to their tally.
