Wick Academy 6 Rothes 1 Reporter - Noel Donaldson THIS was Academy at their creative best and while it is never wise to tempt fate in cup contests, the result must leave them with the confidence they can progress in this league tournament.   Rothes were powerless to counter the ever-increasing goal spate in the preliminary round, as Academys ruthless strike force ripped through their hapless defence, time and again.

Wick Academy 2 Whitehill Welfare 2 Reporter Noel Donaldson JUST when it look as if Academy had booked their place in the next round of the Scottish Cup, with a late decider, than opponents Whitehill Welfare delivered a party spoiler with an even later goal.   With the scoreline at one all at half-time - Gary Weir out-jumping the Welfare defence to even things with a well-placed header - there was everything to play for in the keenly-contested second period but as the clock ticked on, it seemed that a replay was the cards, until Stephen Anderson struck, forging his way through the centre of the Welfare defence ...sparking jubilation on field and among the Academy faithful.
