Traveling without the services of Sam Mackay, Grant and Michael Steven, Academy were on the back foot as early as the second minute when, with their first attack, Stirling were able to find space down the left with Paul McCafferty -The University winger's pass found David O'Brien at the corner of the 6 yard box and he wasted no time in firing the ball past Wick keeper Sean McCarthy.  1 nil to the home team.

Academy regrouped quickly and Ross Allan and Steven Anderson both found space down the left but the Stirling defense were quick to snuff out the danger.

7 minutes in and Wick had appeals for a penalty waved away by referee David Dickinson when a Steven Anderson shot cannoned off the arm of Stirling defender Dominic  Slattery.

5 minutes later Steven Anderson brought out a good save by Uni keeper Kevin Walker when, after good work down the left wing, he cut into the 6 yard and unleashed a shot to the near post.  Walker was at full stretch to push the ball away for a corner.

Sean McCarthy was the next keeper called into action when a Stirling shot looked bound for the bottom corner of the net until the Wick keeper got down low to his right to push the ball into the path of Gordon McNab who turned and cleared the ball up field.

With Steven Anderson and Marc Macgregor operating down the left and Richard Macadie working down the right Wick were making progress up until the 18 yard box but much like the first fixture at Harmsworth Park actual goal chances were hard to come by and, it was University of Stirling who looked like increasing their lead after 30 minutes when a shot by Eachainn Miller had Sean McCarthy at full stretch once again to turn the ball away.

1 nil to the University of Stirling at half time

3 minutes into the second half and Stirling were on the attack again - Paul  McCafferty made a break down the left wing, cut into the edge of the penalty box, but his cross was just missed  on the penalty spot by the sliding Rory MacEwan .  Wick then came close to drawing level in the same minute when a 40 yard shot by Marc Macgregor had the Stirling keeper back peddling but the ball went agonizingly over the crossbar.

Then came the first of three times the woodwork came to the rescue of Academy - Paul McCafferty finding space inside the 18 yard box unleashed shot that crashed off Sean McCarthy's near post.

A crowd of about 500 turned out on what was a  breezy day on the east coast for this first round William Hill Scottish Cup tie.

University of Stirling signalled their attacking intent within the first 2 minutes when a run down the right by Paul McCafferty found Rory MacEwan and his cross had to be blocked by Ross Allan for a corner.  The subsequent corner found Daniel Ashe on the left edge of the Wick 18 yard box and his goal bound shot needed a clearance off the goal line by Wick's Gary Manson.

Wick's first sight of goal game 2 minutes later when, after a driving run from the middle of his own half to the edge of the Stirling 18 yard box, Gordon McNab slipped the ball through to Jack Henry on the edge of the 6 yard area -his low cross was cut out by Stirling's Dominic Slattery just before Steven Anderson could strike.

Wick then had to weather a period of pressure from the visitors - Paul McAfferty, David O'Brien and Chris Geddes combining well through midfield to create several chances  - before the home team was able to fashion some goal action for themselves - A corner from the right was nodded on by Ross Allan, cleared away from the far post by Dominic Slattery but only to Marc Macgregor, whose shot from just inside the 6 yard box had the beating of Stirling keeper Kevin Walker but ran just wide of the far post.

The first main talking point of the match came after 24 minutes when Stirling keeper Walker left his box to clear the ball from the oncoming Richard Macadie.  Walker failed to clear and stopped the ball with his left hand instead.  Referee Harry Bruce and his assistant David Alexander conferred, and to Walker and the rest of his team's relief only a yellow card was brandished.  There was no joy for Wick from the resulting free kick as Richard Macadie's left foot strike curled just to the right of the far post.

Ross Allan was the next player so see yellow - for a tackle from behind on Rory MacEwen - but as with Wick, Stirling could not take advantage of the free kick as Chris Geddes shot went just wide of the post.

Honours even at the interval in what was despite the lack of goal an entertaining 45 minutes of football.
