Brora Rangers 2-2 Lossiemouth (Brora won 4-2 on penalties)
Brora: Adam Mackinnon, Matthew Wright

Brora Rangers survived a stunning late comeback from Lossiemouth to progress to the final of the North of Scotland Cup, where they will face Rothes on Saturday October 2nd at Grant Park. 
Ross County loanees Adam Mackinnon and Matthew Wright scored first half goals to put Brora two ahead and in control at the break. 
Just when time looked to be running out for the visitors, substitute Brodie Allen pulled one back with fifteen minutes remaining, then fellow sub Fraser Forbes levelled matters in injury time to send the tie to a penalty shootout. 
Brora midfielder Dale Gillespie converted the winning spot-kick, sending the Cattachs through to their sixth final in the last eight seasons of the competition.

Team news for matches on Sat 18th September

Scottish Cup First Round 
Banks o' Dee v Turriff Utd 
Junior cracks Banks o' Dee host Turriff United at Spain Park, and the home side will be full of confidence after taking several Highland League scalps in the Aberdeenshire Cup this season. 
Turriff this week signed youngster Ebube Anyaegbunam on a three-year deal after some impressive performances for their development teams. The visitors took a good point at Forres last time out and will aim to build on that result today. 
Blackburn Utd v Rothes
Rothes travel south to take on East of Scotland Premier League side Blackburn United. Greg Morrison, Gary Kerr, Wayne Macintosh, Sean Linden and Ewan Neil all miss out for the visitors.
Brechin City v Vale of Leithen 
Brechin will be without St Johnstone loanees Jack Wills and Max Kucheriavyi for the visit of Lowland League Vale of Leithen to Glebe Park. Garry Wood is a doubt. Recent signing Kevin McHattie's debut is likely to be a number of weeks away.
Clach v Dunipace 
Clach boss Jordan Macdonald has a full squad to choose from for their home tie against Dunipace. The visitors currently lie in fifth place in Conference A of the East of Scotland First Division.
Deveronvale v Haddington Athletic 
Haddington Athletic are the visitors to Princess Royal Park to take on Deveronvale. They sit second in the same league as Clach's opponents Dunipace. Kevin Adams is struggling to be fit for Vale after picking up a knock in training. Rory Davidson is also doubtful, while Matty Jamieson remains out.
Formartine Utd v Cumnock
Formartine take on Ayrshire side Cumnock at North Lodge Park, the home side will aim to repeat last season's run to the Third Round, when they eventually lost to Premier League Motherwell.
Forres Mechanics v Bonnyrigg Rose
Craig Dorrat and Ross McPherson are suspended for Forres and miss the visit of Lowland League leaders Bonnyrigg Rose to Mosset Park. Joe Gauld (knee) and Gordon Mcnab (foot) are both out injured, while Graham Fraser has flu and will face a late fitness test.
Fraserburgh v Sauchie Juniors
Fraserburgh face East of Scotland Premier League opponents in the form of Sauchie Juniors at Bellslea. Logan Watt is out injured and is the only absentee for the Highland League leaders.
