NAIRN St Ninian made it two wins from two with three players on loan from Nairn County thanks to a fine 4-2 home success over Forres Thistle last weekend.
Craig Munro played the full 90 minutes for the second game in succession with Reece Barton appearing as a second half substitute while Matty Macleod remained on the bench but bounced back with an impressive showing for the under-20s in their 4-0 trouncing of Lossiemouth on Monday night.
Charlie Fonweban and Simon Hill had Saints two goals to the good early on before Thistle pulled one back.
Sam Walker added a third Saints goal with Michael Mulligan making it four before Barton was harshly judged to have handled in the penalty area allowing Forres to reduce the arrears from the spot late on.
Saints travel to Downfield tomorrow in the second round of the Scottish Junior Cup.
