Good passing football by both Wick and Rothes made the first half of this match an entertaining affair despite its lack of goals.  Lack of goals did not mean a lack of creativity or chances though -  and first to test a goalkeeper was Wick's Gordon McNab after 9 minutes when his low shot had Rothes keeper Darren McConnachie scrambling to his right to gather the ball.

Rothes immediately broke up field with the ball finding Scott Davidson inside the 18 yard box but Danny Mackay was quick enough to get a foot to the ball sending it out for a corner.  The next real chance fell to Wick after neat passing between Steven Anderson and Gordon McNab left McNab in space 12 yards out from goal - but the Academy man pulled his shot well wide of the post.

Despite the good football on show and the teams swapping attacks neither keeper was really troubled again until the 25th minute when Rothes Jamie Wilson made his way into the 18 yard box, turned defender Ross Allan, and unleashed a shot that had Wick keeper Sean McCarthy diving low to his right to push the ball away.

Academy were then straight back up the field with Steven Anderson powering down the left wing. He cut into the 6 yard box unchallenged but, while his left foot shot beat the Rothes keeper the ball ran just wide of the far post.

The best chance of the first half fell to Rothes' Craig Cameron on the half hour, when, after finding the gap between Wick's Jack Henry and Danny Mackay inside the penalty box, his right foot shot had Wick keeper Sean McCarthy beaten but the ball crashed back off the top of the right hand post.

Rothes gathered momentum , Ross Allan had a timely intervention on the edge of the box as Scott Davidson was about to shoot, the loose ball fell to Craig Cormack , but Jack Henry stretched in to knock the ball away from the toes of Cormack just as he was about to weave his way into a shooting position.
