Huntly’s development side ran out comfortable winners following a 6-1 victory at Keith with six different scorers on target.

The game was originally due to be played at Kynoch Park but was switched to Keith Astroturf following waterlogging.

Huntly thought they’d went ahead after ten minutes. Dillon Farquhar burst forward and saw his shot parried by Leon Simpson and Owen Morris tucked in the rebound only to be ruled offside by Referee Gary Falconer.

Huntly took the lead in the 23rd minute. The home defence failed to clear twice inside their own box before the ball broke to Zander Zvegintzov (right) to fire in the rebound.

Left back Connor Stuart came close to making in two only for Simpson to pull off a great save.

A second goal did come in the 33rd minute with goalscorer Zvegintzov turning provider to pick out DylanMcFadyenDylan McFadyen (left) who struck high inside the post.

Keith pulled one back five minutes before the break when Alan McLeod got in between full back and centre back before placing the ball wide of the advancing Cameron Middleton.
