Turriff United did the double over Huntly for the second successive season after surviving a fightback before running out 4-2 winners at Christie Park.

Murray McCulloch and John Urquhart were recalled to the side after missing the defeat at Nairn while there was a long-awaited return to action for winger Neale Davidson who was featuring for the first time since a leg break on March 21st. Turriff had injury problems to deal with as Gary McGowan joined long term casualty Stuart Cumming on the sidelines

United got off to a great start when Andrew MacAskill went down under a Mark Lawson challenge before curling in a free kick underneath the bar.

Three minutes later, Turriff should’ve been two goals up after a horrible miss. Allen MacKenzie squared the ball to Nicholas Gray who was just yards out with an open goal yet he somehow struck the crossbar with nobody near him.

The hosts came close to levelling when Mark Lawson sent a header goalwards only for Jamie Beagrie to clear.

Fraser Hobday returned in place of the injured Andrew Pennycook and kept the visitors out in the early stages. A fingertip save round the post kept out Jamie Beagrie while the former Fraserburgh player would again be denied by Hobday minutes later following a double save.

In the 22nd minute a corner kick was not cleared and the ball found its way out Allen MacKenzie who shot went through the hands of Fraser Hobday and into the back post.

Just two minutes later an Andrew MacAskill corner was met by the head of Artjoms Kuznecovs. Referee George Robertson didn’t give the goal at first but Assistant Referee Ewan Jarvie signalled the defender had done enough to get the ball over the line.

Huntly started their fightback and when David Booth switch play to Aaron Scoular, Scoular’s return ball was gathered by captain Murray McCulloch who played the ball onto his left foot before beating Kevin Main from the edge of the area.

Half-Time: Huntly 1 Turriff United 3

Just a minute into the second half, Christopher Herd slipped as he was looking for an offside flag and Neale Allan took advantage before his low cross into the back post was drilled in by top scorer David Booth.

In the 54th minute a great ball from Gary McNamee found David Booth in behind the Turriff backline and he got away from Cameron Bowden but his final shot rolled agonisingly wide of the far post.

There was a blow for the visitors when goalscorer MacKenzie was stretchered off with a head knock after he went for a high ball with Huntly defender Mark Lawson. Mackenzie would later go to hospital and suffered a broken eye socket.

Turriff killed the game off with six minutes to go when Andrew MacAskill got across his marker to finish from close range.

While Turriff management and players were furious over the challenge on Mackenzie earlier in the match, united defender Artjoms Kuznecovs could count himself very lucky to escape any card after he swung an elbow at David Booth’s off the ball into stoppage time.
