I caught most of the first half of the Thurso vs Sutherland Utd league cup match at the Dammies.

Utd hit the bar early on and gave a good account of themselves. Sandy Sutherland scored mid-way through the first half and it was 1-0 at half-time. Thurso went onto win 2-1.

Caithness RFC beat Strathmore 26-12 at a muddy Millbank today. It was sunny at the start but rained midway through the first half and was dull for most of the 2nd half. The Greens scored 3 tries in the first half and led 23-5 at half-time. Caithness were camped on the Strathmore try line for long spells in the 2nd half but could not cross over. A 4th try was scored but not given as the ref didn't see it being grounded under a heap of players. Try scorer Blair MacIntosh was the Caithness man of the match.

The smart new pavilion was open for the first time today.

Brora Rangers beat Cove Rangers 3-1 today at Dudgeon Park. It was dry for most of the game, but bitterly cold. Steven MacKay scored the first, Zander Sutherland got the 2nd and Dale Gillespie the third. Cove got a late consolation penalty. Brora are 2nd in the league one point behind Formartine Utd , but with 3 games in hand.

Others scores: Wick beat Turriff 4-1. Halkirk Utd beat Sutherland Utd 3-0 (away). Thurso's game vs Clach was postponed. Caithness RFC beat Ellon 47-0 at Millbank.
