Derby night under the Harmsworth lights attracted a crowd of about 700 who witnessed Brora run out 2-1 winners.

Zander Sutherland latched onto the end of a goal kick to open the scoring after only 5 minutes, and a deflected Andrew Greig shot put the visitors in at the break with a two goal lead.

Davie Allan pulled a goal back on 67 minutes, but unlike last year's encounter Academy couldn't find an equalizer.

Academy were first to threaten and it took a spectacular Joe Malin save to deny Sam Mackay the opening goal. Macadie squared a cross for Mackay on the edge of the box and his shot looked destined for the top right hand corner but Malin went air-born and tipped the ball onto the bar and over for a corner.

In the next move Brora took the lead. Malin launched a goal kick and Zander Sutherland nipped in between Andrew Hardwick and Danny Mackay before firing passed McCarthy into the bottom corner of the net from 15 yards out.

0 - 1

Steven Anderson almost restored parity with a fine header that whistled just passed the post.

Brora won a corner on 24 minutes which fell to Andrew Greig and his 20 yard drive took a flick off a defender leaving McCarthy with no chance as the ball flew passed him and into the net.

0 - 2

Half Time - Wick Academy 0 - Brora Rangers 2

Academy came out fighting for the second half and on 67 minutes Davie Allan hit the burners shaking off two markers to get onto the end of a Gary Manson pass, and he powered home passed Malin from just inside the box.

1 - 2

Academy hunted for the equaliser and Anderson again came close with a header from a Marc MacGregor cross.

At the other end Craig Campbell crossed to Sutherland and he was unlucky not to record his second goal of the game as his shot hit the woodwork.

In the final minutes the tension built as Academy almost grabbed a leveller. Manson whipped a free kick into the box and Michael Steven got his header on target but Malin was on hand to gather.

In the last action of the game McCarthy parried away a Campbell shot and Brora ran down the clock to claim all three points.
