16:52 Congratulations to Cove Rangers - Press and Journal Highland League Champions for season 2012/13 Final Score Formartine 0 - 2 Cove
16:45 With the torrential rain affecting games across the league, a fantastic 32 goals have been scored in eight games with Forres and Strathspey not playing. It looks like Formartine are going to fail in their quest to clinch the league title having collected only 1 point from a possible 9 in their last 3 home games.
16:25 COVE have scored a penalty rebound (Stott) and lead 2-0. It looks like the league trophy might be heading to Allan Park as Formartine toil amid torrential rain. Formartine are also down to 10 men, Jefferey being sent off in giving away the penalty. The highlight elsewhere is Brora leading Fort William now by 10 (ten) goals to nil.
HALF TIME Cove are in the driving seat to lift the title but amazingly, 1 goal is all Formartine need at this stage to change all that and win the league for the first in their short history as a Highland League club. In ten games between the two sides Formartine have yet to earn a point, could this be the time to break the hoodoo? At half time it is Formartine 0-1 Cove.
Elsewhere Brora have struck 8 times against Fort William. Wick look sure of securing 3rd place leading 3-0 at home to Deveronvale. Nairn are leading Huntly 2-1 with Lossie and Rothes tied at 1-1 at the bottom of the table.
Meanwhile, Fraserburgh have leaped ahead of Deveronvale to occupy the 6th position in the league.
