Thurso Acks beat Wick Groats 2-1 after extra time at the Dammies in the semi-final of the Colin MacLeod Memorial cup. Conor Trueman of Acks equalised late in the 2nd half to take the match into extra time. 4th choice goalkeeper Alan Lannon played a blinder in goals for Acks. Murray Mackintosh scored the winner in the 1st half of extra time, with a stunning curling shot direct from a corner kick. I have not seen that done in 10 years of taking football photos.

|Mark Webster scores 4th goal with a wonder strike into top corner|
John O'Groats beat Castletown 5-4 in a thriller of a match in the pouring rain. It was 2-1 to Groats at half-time, when an ambulance took Jack Fidler to hospital with a nasty knee injury. Groats were 4-2 up mid-way through the 2nd half when Castletown struck twice and were going for a win, but Groats headed a late winner.
There was a flurry of bookings in the 2nd half as the pitch became really slippy, but nobody was red carded.
