A late penalty saw Wick Academy leave Christie Park with all three points with a 4-3 win over Huntly.


Huntly had Michael Clark back from suspension while Greg Buchan returned after missing the Aberdeenshire Shield tie against Deveronvale midweek. Wick made two changes from the side which were knocked out of the Highland League Cup by Brora Rangers with Andrew Hardwick and Gary Manson replacing Danny MacKay and Steven Anderson.

With six minutes gone, Tom Ritchie blocked a David Allan shot. The visitors quickly regained possession and worked the ball in for Jack Halliday to net with a low drive for the opening goal.

Wick would double their advantage eight minutes later when Jack Halliday netted from the penalty spot after Kyle Dalling was penalised for a foul on David Allan.

Huntly reduced the deficit in the 26th minute. Greg Buchan’s free kick was headed down by Michael Clark for Logan Johnstone to tap in for his first of the season.

Halliday came close to netting his hat-trick eleven minutes from the break only for Ritchie to dive low to save.

Half-Time: Huntly 1 Wick Academy 2

Huntly drew level 95 seconds into the second half when Michael Dangana got in behind the opposing defence before chipping a shot beyond the advancing Graeme Williamson for his second goal in two league games.

The hosts came close to taking the lead only for Williamson to deny Jack MacIver in the 52nd minute. Wick had a good chance themselves just after the hour mark with Tom Ritchie turning a Ryan Campbell shot round the post.

The hosts took the lead in the 69th minute. Greg Buchan’s free kick was headed on by Kyle Dalling for Michael Clark to fire high into the net for his second of the season.

Huntly came close to a fourth when MacIver played in Dangana only for the forward to be kept out through a solid stop by Williamson.

Wick equalised with ten minutes to go with defender Joe Anderson hitting a low drive for his first Highland League goal.

The Scorries were awarded a second penalty with five minutes remaining with Kyle Dalling deemed to have fouled David Allan. Christopher Hay and Tom Ritchie were both cautioned for dissent by Referee Scott Leslie before Player-Manager Gary Manson fired home from the spot for his second goal of the season.
