Gemma Nutt gave Clach the lead after 20 minutes but Emily McAuslan levelled for the hosts minutes later.

Betty Ross put the Merkinch outfit 2–1 in front at half time.

McAuslan scored her second to make it 2–2 in the second half, but Clachnacuddin restored their lead through Ross.

But a penalty in the dying minutes scored by Lorna Young earned Buckie a point.

Elsewhere, Caithness beat Orkney 4–0 and Sutherland won 4–2 at Brora Rangers.
