Match Report


An otherwise run of the mill, end of season encounter produced a memorable couple of minutes of stoppage time action.

There was a first minute scare for Wick when Rothes striker Liam Forbes fired low to keeper Michael Gray's right and the ball almost squirmed over the line.

Wick took charge and after a few close calls went into the lead after 28 minutes. Keeper Craig Ferguson denied Richard Macadie with a fine one handed save but Gary Weir swept the rebound into the unguarded net.

0 - 1

Ten minutes later Davie Allan sprinted after a through ball and steered it low past Ferguson to double the home side's advantage.

0 - 2

Moments before the break Rothes pulled back a goal when after a goal line scramble the ball was deflected into his own net by the unfortunate Wick defender Michael Steven.

1 - 2

Half time - Wick Academy 1 - Rothes 2

Neither keeper was seriously troubled during the second half until Rothes substitute Jack Presly fired a 30 yard drive high into the Wick net in the first minute of added time.

2 - 2

The visitors' joy at their equaliser was short-lived as Wick swarmed upfield to win a corner and a glancing header from Alan Farquhar snatched a dramatic win.

3 - 2
