Half Time 3 - 1
James More keeps Academy in the game saving a penalty kick from Paul Urquhart. The PK came from a hand-ball by Andrew Macleod. Urquhart shoots low to James's left, and he gets down to make a good one handed stop.
Bryan McKiddie has come off injured, replaced by Stuart Sinclair.
With just under 15 minutes of the game left Mark Chisholm puts the game beyond doubt, scoring from a corner kick.
4 - 1
Gary Manson has a great effort from the edge of the box sending in a low driven shot that flashes accross the face of Blanchard's goal.
7 minutes to go and Vale go nap, Chisholm getting his second goal of the game. The ball is floated into the box by Dolan and Chisholm heads it just beyond More. It bounces off the post and trickles into the net.
