Mosset Tavern earned their place in the semi-final after defeating Elgin side The Vikings 5-4 and then edging out Forres Mechanics’ under-20s on penalties after a 1-1 draw.

In the first round, last Tuesday, Mosset won 5-4 against The Vikings thanks to goals from Gregor Ewen (2), David Bromley, Grant Falconer and Cameron Grant.

Vikings Forward David Fenton earned his side two penalties, allowing team mates Kraig Gunn and Jason Rumbles to dispatch them before scoring two himself.

Forres Mechanics under-20s beat Caberfeidh 4-1, but were beaten by Mosset in the semis. Goalkeeper, and last season’s top scorer, Fraser Thom was the hero as he saved the sixth penalty before stepping up to score the winner.

Carisbrooke’s carried their league form into the cup as they beat Elgin Caledonian 6-0 in the quarters. Donny McCulloch (2), Mark MacPhee (2), Adis Jaganjac, and Connor Aubrey scored the goals.

Goals from Luke Anderson (2), Gavin Damba and Darriel Brown gave Kinloss Sappers a 4-0 win over Elgin Thistle.

Riverside Thistle were awarded a 2-0 walkover against Elgin Albion.
