Match Report


Wick turned on the style in the second half to complete the double over 10 man Formartine.

A cross field wind was the winner in a goal-less first half. Wick's Stevie Cunningham tested visiting keeper Derek Soutar with a well struck 20 yard drive in the 10th minute and after the home defence had dealt with a couple of high swirling free kicks from Mark Smith, Soutar again did well to hold a shot from Sam Mackay.

In the 27th minute a quick break put Mackay one on one with the advancing Soutar who deflected Mackay's shot over the bar with his arm.

Stuart Soane twice went close for Formartine near the half hour with a curling shot from the left and a glancing header from a corner.

In the 36th minute came a decisive incident. Wick striker Davie Allan raced on to a through ball and was tripped on the 18 yard line by Mark Smith who was red carded by referee David Watt.

Half Time 0 - 0

After the break Wick soon made their extra man count. Davie Allan ran into the box onto a Grant Steven pass to net from close range.

Allan then swept a through ball from Richard Macadie into the path of Craig Shearer who steered it low past Soutar.

Soane pulled it back to 2-1 with a spectacular 35 yard volley only for Mackay to restore Wick's two goal advantage from Alan Farquhar's pass.

Mackay came close to adding to the Wick tally as did Grant Steven with a header inches over the bar.

Full Time 3 - 1
