Invergordon staged a thrilling comeback against Loch Ness to breathe new life into the North Caledonian League title race.
Leaders Loch Ness established a two-goal lead through Darren MacGregor’s first half double, however Niall Docherty pulled a goal back for the visitors on the stroke of half-time.
Second-half goals from Jack Mackay and Callum Gow secured a 3-2 triumph for Gary Campbell’s men.

It came on a day in which the league card was reduced, after Orkney’s home match against St Duthus and Thurso’s match against Golspie Sutherland were called off.
St Duthus and Golspie hastily rearranged an outstanding fixture, with the sides sharing a 1-1 draw in Tain.
Due to another postponement in the league, we will now play Golspie Sutherland at home tomorrow in a reschedule league game. Kick off is 2pm at Grant Park!
