The Banff side piled more misery on relegation-threatened Fort William with a 10-0 victory at Princess Royal Park.

More Highland League: Forres crash to second straight 7-0 defeat.

It was the second consecutive game where the Lochaber side had conceded double figures and the third time this season.

Vale had a trialist in their starting line-up and he made an impression by scoring three times.

Max Stewart's first minute counter, an Innes McKay strike and further goals by Ross Aitken, James Connelly (pen), Mikey Watson (2) and sub Dane Ballard completed the rout.

Two more Kieran Shanks goals helped Inverurie Locos to a 5-1 success over Strathspey Thistle.

After Rob Ward's early Locos opener, Shanks scored twice in the first half to take his tally for the season to 19 and give the home side a 3-1 interval lead - Kris Duncan scored for Jags.

Ross Still and Sam Burnett added two more Inverurie goals in the final 15 minutes for a win that keeps the Harlaw Park side in fourth position.

Turriff United collapsed to a 6-0 defeat at home to Nairn County.

Dean Donaldson's side carried a first half threat and had the better chances with the score at 0-0 just before half time.

But Nairn struck twice in two minutes through Conor Gethins and Seamus McConaghy to deliver a double whammy to their hosts right on half time.

Turriff heads went down as Gethins went on a scoring rampage, adding three more goals in a dealy ten-minute spell, and a last minute Angus Dey goal completed a fine day for County.

Christie Park witnessed a seven-goal thriller where Huntly hit back from two goals down to lead, only to throw it all away in the closing minutes.

Two Jack Halliday goals including a penalty had Wick 2-0 in front after 15 minutes, with Logan Johnstone pulling one back before half time.

The home side took control for a spell in the second half, levelling through Michael Dangana and edging in front for the first time with a Michael Clark effort 20 minutes from time.

Back came the Caithness men to level on 81 minutes through Joe Anderson, and five minutes later they were awarded their second spot kick of the game, which player boss Gary Manson fired home to land Wick only their second win of the league season.
