Match Report


Academy made the Wednesday night trip to Station Park to face Nairn County. Six goals, a red card and more bookings than could be counted on one hand wasn't bad entertainment for the spectators that attended, and the end result was a share of the points.

For the second game on the spin Academy took the lead more or less straight from the kick-off. Academy drove forward down the right flank through Davie Allan who cut the ball across into the box for Sam Mackay to tap home from six yards out.

0 - 1

17 minutes later the Scorries doubled their advantage. Steven Anderson got his head to a Richard Macadie cross and he powered home with a down-ward bullet header.

0 - 2

It wasn't long before Nairn pulled a goal back. An Allan Pollock shot from 22 yards out took a massive deflection which wrong-footed Sean McCarthy and flew into the net.

1 - 2

Half Time - Nairn County 1 - Wick Academy 2

The second half started badly for Academy when after 11 minutes referee Mark Stewart adjudged Michael Steven to have denied a goal scoring opportunity when it looked as it Steven had won the ball fairly from Sam Urquhart. He pointed to the spot and flashed Steven a straight red card and Academy were down to 10 men. Conor Gethins stepped up and converted the spot-kick.

2 - 2

Despite Academy being a man short they went on to regain the lead. Academy won a free-kick on the left which was swung in by Sam Mackay to be turned in by Davie Allan from six yards out.

2 - 3

Within a minute Nairn were back level. Andrew Skinner had his initial shot blocked but made no mistake second time around smashing home from 12 yards out.

3 - 3

Sam Urquhart came closest to grabbing the winner but his shot smashed off the post and bounced away to safety.

Full Time - Nairn County 3 - Wick Academy 3
