Football: Brechin Victoria 3, Kinnoull 0.
In the first half Vics’ defence stood out well against Kinnoull pressure. The Vics’ ‘keeper was unable to get at a Whyte strike, but the ball flashed past the post. In the second half, Vics were right on top with Marnie and Monro (2) the goal scorers.

Football: Stranraer 0, Brechin City 0.
For all but four minutes of Saturday’s game at Stair Park, City had to play with 10 men. Sime was sent off within minutes of the kickoff. However, against an unenterprising Stranraer team, City soon showed a greater smartness in picking up the ball which made them the more dangerous looking side, though both teams lost many chances.
