THREE first half goals condemned Nairn County to defeat at Brora Rangers.
The home side opened the scoring after only 12 minutes as Zander Sutherland was free to connect with a free kick into the box from the left and sent a side-footed volley beyond the rooted Calum Antell.
The home side doubled their advantage on 32 minutes as Martin Maclean nodded home a corner from the right at the back post.
Brora took an unassailable lead in with them at the break when Ross Tokely fired low beyond Antell at the second attempt on 38 minutes.
