Match Report


Academy travelled to Grant Park today for their penultimate away game of the season. Gary Weir was suspended after breaking the 18 point mark and Stevie Cunningham took his place up front.

Academy managed to fight back after going two goals down when Lossie visited Wick back in September of last year, but the Scorries ran out convincing winners in today’s encounter. The 3 points today takes them a point within Clach, who beat Formartine 4-2 today. Clach have now finished for the season so Academy need a point from their last two games to pinch 14th spot from the Lillie-whites, which is the highest position Academy can now achieve this season.

David Allan opened the scorings for Academy in the 6th minute. A long ball up-field broke to Allan at the edge of the D and he calmly lobbed keeper Darren McConnachie.

Both teams had further half-chances before the break, but they left the field with Academy holding a slender 1-0 lead.

Half Time 0 – 1

Academy doubled their lead on 57 minutes. A tight mid-field battle saw Academy win possession and the ball was played long to Stevie Cunningham on the right hand corner of the penalty area and he picked his spot to riffle home low past McConnachie.

Three minutes later Cunningham bagged his second of the game. Joe Steven drove up the left side of the park before firing the ball across goal. Cunningham controlled the ball magnificently with his right foot before firing home with his left.

Academy went 4 up with a minute of time left to play. Joe Steven picked the ball up in his own half and launched it over the top of the Lossiemouth defence for Richard Macadie to run onto the ball and he slotted him with ease.

Almost straight from the re-start Academy went nap. Good passing play saw the Scorries back into the Lossie half where the ball broke into the box for substitute Sam Mackay and he slid the ball under the body of keeper McConnachy.

Full Time 0 - 5.

The result is Academy's biggest ever competitive away win since joining the Highland League in season 1994/95.
