North of Scotland Cup Semi-Final
Strathspey Thistle 1-4 Rothes
Strathy: Craig MacKenzie
Rothes: Michael Finnis, Craig Cormack, Alan Pollock (pen), Kane Davies
Rothes produced an excellent performance to defeat Strathspey Thistle at Seafield Park and win a place in the final of the North of Scotland Cup.
Michael Finnis headed the visitors in front early on and Craig Cormack made it two just beyond the half hour mark.
Craig MacKenzie threw the home side a lifeline when he pulled a goal back a minute from half time, only for Alan Pollock to restore Rothes' two-goal cushion from the penalty spot after 65 minutes.
Substitute Kane Davies completed the scoring to send Rothes through to a final meeting with either Brora Rangers or Lossiemouth.
