A flying start helped Buckie Thistle to a 4-1 win over Nairn County on Wednesday night.
The win takes Graeme Stewart's side up to fourth in the Highland League, just six points behind leaders Fraserburgh.
Kyle MacLeod got Jags off to a fine start, converting from Andy MacAskill's pass.
Nairn quickly equalised through a Rory Williamson header before MacLeod capitalised on a defensive error to restore the home lead on 16 minutes.
MacAskill cut in to slam a third before the half hour and captain Kevin Fraser made it 4-1 on the stroke of half time.
Jags took their foot off the gas in the second half and there was no further scoring.
Keith looked eager to bounce back from a series of heavy defeats when they led Formartine United after 45 minutes.
However the Pitmedden visitors hit back after the break to win 2-1, thanks to a penalty kick winner hotly disputed by the Maroons.
Ryan Robertson became only the fifth Keith player to score a goal this season when he forced the ball home on 20 minutes.
Keith had chances to go further ahead, but were pegged back by a spectacular Tyler Mykyta free kick on the hour.
The big talking point arrived 12 minutes from time when former Keith player Dan Park went down in the box and a penalty was awarded, sparking an angry reaction from the home side.
Jonny Crawford duly fired the ball home to net what proved to be the winner.
