Youngsters Daniel Bell and Shaun Sinclair get the nod today, and start the game. The Christie Park pitch looks heavy, and has had to be re-lined before kick-off.

Just kicked off - 0 - 0

Academy get the perfect start going a goal up within the first minute. Richard Macadie played Gary Manson through into the Huntly box, and Gary scored past Bremner from 12 yards out.


0 - 1

With 10 minutes gone Academy are under the cosh, pinned back into their own half as Huntly press for an equaliser.

15 minutes gone and Martin Gunn is taken down at the edge of the Huntly box. Gary Farquhar takes the free-kick which takes a deflection. Keeper Bremner gets a hand to it, but can't stop it from going in.


0 - 2

Gary McGowan has a good attempt from 12 yards, but Daniel makes a good save.

Academy miss a great opportunity to go 3 up. Martin Gunn gets a free header from close range, but Bremner pulls-off a good save.

27 minutes gone and Huntly are right back into the game. The ball is crossed in from a corner kick. Niall Corser cracks it on the volley from 25 yards out and it flys into the top corner giving Daniel no chance.

1 - 2

Martin Gunn gets himself into another goal-scoring position 10 yards from goal, but again is denied by another Bremner save.

Half Time 1 - 2

Academy start the second half in similar fashion to the first, scoring with only 2 minutes played. Martin Gunn is played into the Huntly box and goes one-on-one with keeper Bremner, and this time beats him to score.

1 - 3

55 minutes played and Huntly again pull themselves right back into the game. A crossed ball from the right hand side of pitch and Niall Corsair gets his head to it firing past Daniel who is rooted to the spot.

2 - 3

With just over an hour gone and Peter makes a change. Graeme Reid on for Martin Gunn.

72 minutes, final substitutions made. Stuart Sinclair and Bryan McKiddie on for Neil Traill and Gary Manson. 

16 minutes left and Huntly level the game. A defence error by Andrew MacLeod lets Bruce Cromie in on goal, and he slots home from 6 yards out.

3 - 3

Bryan McKiddie has a good header on goal, but Bremner makes the save. 

82 minutes gone and Huntly take the lead for the first time in the game. The ball is played through into the Academy box. Daniel comes for it, but Bruce Cromie gets there first, slotting home to score his second of the game.

4 - 3

Full Time 4 - 3 

So a disappointment for Academy today. Scoring 3 goals, especially away from home, you'd expect to take something away from the game, but fair-play to Huntly for coming back strong and winning the game.
