Match Report


Just kicked off, latest score 0 - 0. Alex Lamb didn't travel with the team as he is ill, Graeme Reid starts.

20 mins now played, no real chances in the game yet for either side. Bit of a stale-mate so far by all accounts.

30 mins - Buckie take the lead. John Coutts cuts in from right and slots past James.

1 - 0

Martin Gunn has had to come off injured, Murray Coghill replaced him.

34 mins - Buckie double their lead. John Coutts scores again, this time with a header from a crossed ball.

2 - 0

Academy have yet to really carve out a decent chance in the game.

Half Time - 2 - 0

5 mins after the re-start - John Coutts gets his hat-trick scoring from the edge of the box, chipping over keeper More.

3 - 0

Nigel Mackenzie manages to get through on the keeper, but is hustled off the ball by the Buckie defence.

60 mins - John Coutts is having a wonder-game, scoring again. This time driving a low driven shot from 6 yards out. James did manage to get finger-tips to it, but couldn't stop the ball trickling over the line.

4 - 0

61 mins - Buckie get a corner and Jamie Shewan manages to flick it over the top of James for goal number 5.

5 - 0

Both Sandy Sutherland and Nigel had chances to score in the latter part of the game, but unforunately Academy cannot convert.

Finals Score 5 - 0

For the second week in a row neither Academy or Lossiemouth can pick up any league points. Lossie got beat 2 - 3 at home today by Clach. That means Academy stay in 11th place on the same points as Lossie, but with a better goal difference. Rothes had a free weekend, and are only 3 points behind with 2 games in hand. It looks as if the battle for 11th, 12th and 13th in the league could go right to the last game of the season!
