It was a better performance for Huntly in tonight’s Aberdeenshire Cup first round tie but after conceding three goals for the third game in a row they went down 3-1 to holders Buckie Thistle.

Jags Boss Gregg Carrol had to change his side before kick-off with Hamish Munro in for Graeme Stewart who was injured in the warm-up while Zander Sutherland was added to the subs bench. John Teasdale recalled Mark Gray who returned after the birth of his daughter while Myles Brownhill was starting after being an unused sub on Saturday.

 

Only two minutes into the game and Stuart Soane had a header tipped over the bar after Myles Brownhill sent in a cross. From the resulting corner, Brownhill had an effort held low by the returning Kevin Main.

Four minutes later and Jordan Timmons shot wide after Richie Taylor flicked the ball on.

On nineteen minutes, former Huntly striker Andy Low struck the base of the post when he curled in a free kick. The ball was quickly played back in from the left wing as Jamie Shewan headed wide.

Midway through the half, Timmons struck a low shot and it was nearly turned into his own net by Lewis MacKinnon. As the ball was sent in from the corner kick, Stuart Soane saw his attempt cleared off the line by Low.

Three minutes from the break and defender Neil Reid was booked for foul on Craig Macmillan inside the box. The Buckie striker picked himself up to drill low from the spot to Neil Hastie’s right.

Half-Time: Buckie Thistle 1 Huntly 0

There was one change at the interval with Russell Guild replacing Stuart Soane who picked up an injury but it shouldn’t be serious enough to keep him out of Saturday’s game at Nairn.

A minute into the second half, Kevin Small gave away a foul on Richie Taylor. Adam Naismith rolled the ball to Myles Brownhill but he wasted his shot putting it wide.

Guild came on looking to make an impact and went on a run into attack only to be blocked by Lewis MacKinnon. The ball came loose to Taylor who was just wide of the post.

Buckie came close a couple of times shortly after with Duncan and Macmillan both blocked inside the area.

On 72 minutes, Ian Murray made a great run down the right flank and lifted a cross into the back post for Craig Macmillan to net with a header.
With ten minutes to go, Huntly pulled one back following a corner. Jordan Timmons’ kick was played on by Michael Dunn to Russell Guild who headed it across goal for Richie Taylor to net from close range.

Any hopes of a Huntly fightback were killed off in the final minute when Craig Macmillan took advantage of a Graham Stark attempted pass-back to run on a complete his hat-trick with a low shot past Hastie.
