Fort’s Michael Corbett put the home side back in front in the 73rd minute, but six minutes later the visitors equalised from the penalty spot.
With the score tied at 3-3 after 90 minutes the teams geared up for the dreaded penalty shoot-out.
There was some confusion between the referee and members of the Fort William club about extra time rules but, after consulting the North of Scotland Cup rule book, the ref agreed with the Fort that no extra time should be played, and the match went straight to penalties.
After Lossie missed three spot kicks the Fort held on to win 4-1.
