Brechin City 1-5 Forfar Athletic

A four-goal first-half haul sent Forfar Athletic on their way to victory against Brechin City.

Martyn Fotheringham's lob and Chris Templeman's tidy finish put the visitors in command.

Darren Dods' free-kick and Dale Hilson's finish stretched Forfar's advantage.

Brechin pulled one back through Robert Barr's rising shot but Templeman tapped in his second late on to complete the Loons' victory.
