Alness 6 Forres Mechanics 0
After the heroics of recent weeks, the Cans came back to earth with a crash as they went down heavily at Alness. The scoreline does not tell the whole story, however, as the team battled hard throughout. The defence, though, just could not handle one of the Easter Ross's forward line - a prospect who must already have excited the interest of major league scouts.
Nairn County 5 Forres Mechanics 3
In a thrilling and at times contentious game on the Nairn astro-turf, Forres eventually went down with all guns blazing.
Pick of the goals was perhaps Callum Kerrigans bullet header from a corner on the left but Robert Oliphant continued his good form and goal-scoring, on this occasion picking up a brace. There were good performances around the team with Callum Souter having his best game in a Cans' jersey, Shay Ewing solid in midfield and Rory Gerrie a bag of tricks on the wing. Substitute Adam Thomson also stamped his mark on the match, spraying around some fine passes in difficult conditions as a steady, Spring breeze bore down the pitch.

Nairn County 5 Forres Mechanics 1
This was a sore one for the Cans. With only 11 players available, the lads began brightly but struggled as legs wearied in midfield. 3-0 down at half time, they staged a mini-comeback in the final quarter, taking advantage of the steady breeze blowing down the lumpy Nairn Academy pitch. Strong running forced the home side into a series of fouls just outside the box and from one of these Centre-back Connor McCartney lashed home the well flighted Sean Douglas free kick. The Cans continued to press till the final whistle but could not add to their tally.
