Match Report


A bumper crowd of over 800 fans packed Harmsworth Park tonight to watch a hard-fought derby game. Academy played very well but were beaten by a controversial penalty late into the second half.

Academy started brightly and should have taken the lead early in the second half. Sam Mackay flred in a cross to Davie Allan who teed up Craig Shearer on the edge of the Brora box but his cracking drive flew inches wide of target.

In the next attack Shearer had his pocket picked on the ends of his own box by Steven Mackay and with only Gray to beat he scuffed his shot wide of the post.

Michal Steven was next to provide a chance for Gary Weir but Weir couldn't get any power behind his shot and Joe Malin mopped it up.

Academy passed up a great chance just before half-time when james Pickles pumped a ling ball into the path of Davie Allan who got the better of Grant Munro his marker but his shot went just wide of the target.

Half Time - Wick Academy 0 - Brora Rangers 0

Brora had a much better second half and Steven Ross came close with two headed attempts

As the game looked to be heading towards a draw Grant Steven and Steven Mackay contested a cross in the Academy penalty box and referee Graham Fraser pointed to the spot. Steven Mackay claimed the ball and made no mistake in firing home the penalty kick.

0 - 1

Academy almost grabbed an equaliser in the final action of the game. Good pressure won the Scorries a corner which was delivered by Richard Macadie. Michael Steven rose highest in the penalty area but his attempt shaved the top of the Brora cross-bar.

Full Time - Wick Academy 0 - Brora Rangers 1
