We show for all n not in that there exists a latin square of order n that contains two entries γ_1 and γ_2 such that there are some transversals through γ_1 but they all include γ_2 as well. We use this result to show that if n>6 and n is not of the form 2p for a prime p greater or equal to 11 then there exists a latin square of order n that possesses an orthogonal mate but is not in any triple of MOLS. Such examples provide pairs of 2-maxMOLS.
