Reporter - Noel Donaldson

FOOTBALL came home to Harmsworth Park on Saturday and supporters, thirsting for the return after a match famine, couldn't have been more delighted.

There was no love lost between the sides as the Scorries disposed of opponents Huntly with no less that four goals without reply, to leap-frog into third place in the Highland League table.

In boxing parlance, the Scorries delivered a quick one-two on the visitors, Davie Allan putting them on the canvas with the first strike and Lukasz Geruzel flooring them again, minutes later. The big fella then compounded Huntly's misery by netting, again, in the 22nd minute, through service from Richard Macadie, to put his side into the break with an unassailable lead.

Huntly made a determined start in the second half but any chance hopes of making the scoreline a little more respectable didn't materialise, in no small part due, to some sharp defending and impressive goalkeeping. The whitewash was completed by Steven Anderson from close in.

Earlier, Harmsworth Park fell silent, in a minute's tribute to departed Academy faithful, Donald Macdonald, Dom Mulraine and school sports co-ordinator Garry Macleod.

Attendance at the game came nearer to that of a Wick v Brora derby encounter, an indicator of just how keen fans were to see their side back in action.

Man-of-the match was Sam Mackay.

Wick Academy 0 Fraserburgh 1 Reporter Noel Donaldson ACADEMY supporters' hopes were doubtless high that the miracle mid-week comeback by their team against Forres Mechanics, would be the catalyst to getting to grips with their home results jinx.   In the event, the encounter with a well-marshalled Broch outfit was something of an anti-climax, Academy unable to replicate anything close to that scintillating 5-3 performance - underlining their inherent lack of consistency and failing to secure a draw even, in a game that was no classic.

Wick Academy 2 Brora Rangers 2 Reporter Noel Donaldson THE Scorries reversed a two-goal deficit, to grab a share of the spoils in a gutsy second half comeback.   Apart from displaying a never-say-die commitment, the draw demonstrated that Academy are closing the gap on their derby rivals, no small achievement when you consider Dudgeon Parks quality and expensive outfit.
