Academy's unbeaten start to the season was ended by visitors Lossiemouth today as the Coasters claimed the three points to keep their 100% record intact. As well as the disappointment of the defeat Academy will also now be without the services of Sam Mackay for the next two games as he was sent off, and Grant Steven also hobbled off with an injury and will be doubtful for next Saturday's game away to Clachnacuddin.

Academy took the lead on 11 minutes. Ross Allan whipped in a great corner that looked as if it glanced off the post and after a mad scramble in the Lossie box it fell to Michael Steven and he smashed a low drive passed keeper Darren McConnachie.

1 - 0

Three minutes later the Coasters were level. Scott Miller made good ground down the right flank and delivered into the box. Academy failed to clear and Connor Macaulay knocked in from 4 yards out.

1 - 1

Just before the half hour mark Sam Mackay almost fired Academy back into the lead when he unleashed a cracking 30 yard strike on target which keeper McConnachie did really well to get a hand to and he tipped it over the crossbar.

Mackay came close again a few minutes later bus his shot was safely held by McConnachie.

On 39 minutes McConnachie again well to get finger-tips to a Ross Allan free kick to help the ball on its way over the crossbar.

A minute later and Sam Mackay's game was over as referee Ben Dempster flashed him a straight red card for coming through the back of Ally Bellingham out wide on the stand-side touch-line. Bellingham was injured in the tackle and was replaced by Harry Noble.

Half Time - Wick Academy 1 - Lossiemouth 1

James McLean came on for Richard Macadie at the start of the second half in a tactical change by Gordon Connelly.

Gary Weir came close to scoring but yet again McConnachie was on hand to turn his attempt passed the outside of the post.

Despite being a man down Academy still looked threatening and Dave Allan showed a glimpse of his lighting pace as he tore down the right wing before delivering the ball into the box for James Mclean but he couldn't make a decent connection on the ball to threaten the Lossie goal.

McLean was also involved in the next attack as he hammered a Ross Allan Corner on target but the Lossie keeper was on fire and he made another excellent save.

Up the other end it McCarthy's turn to pull off a good save as he prevented substitute Harry Nobel scoring from a 25 yard free-kick.

10 minutes from the final whistle Bryan Bell was taken on for Martin Charlesworth and he made an immediate impact on the game. He swung a cross into the Academy box and Alan Farquhar tried to clear it but unfortunately headed into his own net passed a helpless McCarthy.

1 - 2

Academy couldn't find a reply and it was the visitors that headed down the road with all three points.
