A three-nil win in Wick saw Huntly advance to the Highland League Cup Quarter-Finals where they will host Brora Rangers on Saturday 7th December.

With both of their regular goalkeepers missing, Wick had started with James More in goal. Huntly had a number of absentees as Euan Storrier returned on loan while Christopher Hay started for the first time since 21st April 2018. Declan Milne was recalled by Buckie Thistle only for their game to be called off while Nathan Meres (illness), Alexander Thoirs, Alexander Jack, Christopher Herd and David Booth were all unavailable.

 

Euan Storrier was called into action early on keeping out a Ryan Campbell header after four minutes. Ross Still had an effort blocked in the eighteenth minute while Alan Hughes mis-hit a great chance minutes later.

Kai Ross was a constant threat and he took the ball down midway through the half forcing a save from James More. A Storrier blocked kept out Academy’s Craig Gunn while a Ross volley minutes later produced another save from More. More denied Ross again from a dead ball in the 35th minute while Alan Farquhar would head wide following a Sam MacKay free kick for the hosts.

Half-Time: Wick Academy 0 Huntly 0

Within forty seconds of the second half starting, Paul Esslemont took advantage of a defensive lapse from Sam MacKay and crossed in to Kai Ross who headed in from close range.

Four minutes later, Jack Henry was penalised for a foul on Liam MacDonald. Kai Ross turned provider to float in a free kick for Paul Esslemont to head home his side’s second.

Wick looked to bounce back and a deep free kick from Gary Manson picked out David Allan whose header was kept out by Storrier. Just after the hour mark, Storrier made another save this time to deny Sam MacKay.

Two minutes into stoppage time, Glenn Murison played in Kai Ross inside the last third and Ross’ quick pass created an opportunity for substitute Cai Matthew who drilled low inside the post for his first Huntly goal.
