Football: Montrose Vics 5, Brechin Harp 6.
The Harp kept up their good form, but had to fight all the way as they suffered two setbacks, the first after 20 minutes when Mike Reid was carried off with a twisted ankle, but Sean Sweeny proved a capable replacement. The second setback was the 6-2 lead being reduced to 6-5 in the space of five minutes. Unlike earlier in the season the Brechin boys know that now when the going gets tough the tough get going and the defence stood firm.

Football: The Brechin versus Hamilton First Division match was the only game in Scottish League football which had to be postponed on Saturday. Glebe Park was waterlogged.
