There were goals galore in the opening round of the North Regional Cup with both Stonehaven and Banks o’ Dee hitting double figures.
At Glenury Park, David Baillie fired seven as Stonehaven hit 20 without reply against luckless New Elgin with Keith Horne (4), James Baxter (3), Adam McLennan (2), Danny Anderson, Blair Duthie, Ludi Metelski and an own goal completing the rout.
Not to be outdone, Dee ran up 15 at Spain Park where Islavale were the visitors with five-goal Lachie MacLeod leading the way assisted by Jack Henderson (4), Jamie Buglass (2), Michael Philipson (2), Rob Armstrong and Mark Gilmour.
Second division leaders Newmachar United arguably produced the result of the day with a 7-2 home success against Superleague Hall Russell United in which doubles from Greg Wood, James McMahon and Chris Hardie and a Ryan Whelan effort did the damage.
At Pleasure Park, Maud were stunned by First Division Stoneywood Parkvale, who ran out 5-0 victors with counters from James Olufome (2), Neale Davidson, Barin Faleye and Kyle McKillop-Hall.
Ewan Clark, Glen Mutch and Lewis Hendry were on target as Rothie Rovers accounted for Aberdeen University while at Ian Mair Park, Sam Robertson, Gordon Forsyth and Jordan Leyden scored as Dyce defeated ten man Culter, who had Ryan Stewart dismissed and replied through Nikolas Wozniak.
Scott Kerr, Adam Joji and Josh Bolton all fired braces as East End thumped Burghead Thistle 6-1 at New Advocates Park while strikes from Ross Cowe and Jamie Shewan saw Buchanhaven Hearts get the better of Forres Thistle with a 2-1 success in which Sean McIntosh responded for the Jags.
At Milton Park, Sunnybank won 5-4 on spot kicks after a 2-2 share with Banchory St Ternan with Josh Petrie and Kevin Robertson scoring for the Heathryfold outfit while Colony Park won 2-1 at Cruden Bay, where Connor Killoh and Graeme Cochrane were on the mark for the Inverurie side with the hosts Elijah Ogunwale also finding the net.
Goals from Noel Scott (2) and Euan Simpson saw Whitehills progress by the odd goal in five at the expense of Deveronside who replied via Shaun Sopel and Philip Watt.
Jordan Andrew (2) and Matthew Hawes were the Nairn St. Ninian goal heroes in the 3-2 victory over Bridge of Don Thistle while the tie between Hermes and Montrose Roselea at Lochside Park was postponed due to a COVID outbreak in the visitors camp.
In the McBookie.com First Division, goals from Kelvin Main and Shaun Cameron gave Dufftown a 2-1 win at Fraserburgh United while Logside ran out 3-1 victors in Section 4 of the League Cup.
