Huntly recorded their first home win in the Scottish Cup since 2015 with a three-nil win over Lowland League side Dalbeattie Star.


The black and gold’s made one change from the starting eleven which earned a point against Deveronvale last week as Joe Gauld came in for Cameron Booth meanwhile Alexander Thoirs and Daniel Critchard were added to the bench. Dalbeattie made the trip north without goalkeeper Darren Martin as Lee Wells was a serving a one match suspension in the competition.

Huntly went close after nine minutes when Glenn Murison won the ball outside the box and his low shot was held by teenager goalkeeper Charlie Cowie.
The visitors thought they’d taken the lead early on when Connor Graham sent a low drive towards the far post only for his effort to come back off the woodwork.

Cameron Bowden did well to block a Ross Irving shot in the fourteenth minutes while Daniel Orsi saw an effort wide of the post minutes later.

In the 23rd minute, Huntly were awarded a free kick outside the box following a handball by Liam Park. Cai Matthew sent the ball in for Cameron Bowden and when goalkeeper Charlie Cowie failed to hold the ball it spun to Gary McGowan to fire in low to open the scoring.

Dalbeattie defender Liam Park was cautioned for dissent after protesting the decision while Dalbeattie Player-Manager Richard Maxwell also went into the booking after sweating at Referee Iain Snedden.

Four minutes from the break Reece McKeown ran onto a through ball from Ross Still. McKeown fed Gary McGowan and quickly received the return pass before finishing with a left-footed shot high inside the post from a tight angle.

Half-Time: Huntly 2 Dalbeattie Star 0

Huntly extended their lead in the 54th minute when Glenn Murison got the ball out on the right and spotted the run of Reece McKeown who added his second with a first time finish inside the box.

The visitors finished the game with ten men when midfielder Steven Degnan shown a straight red for stamping on Joe Gauld in front of Assistant Referee Rhys Jones.
