Match Report


Veteran keep Don MacMillan is back between the sticks today for the first time in almost exactly 2 years. Don's last appearance for the Scorries was on the 8th of April 2006. Don has been absent due to injury and replaces James More who is unavailable today due to illness.

The game has just kicked off on a bitterly cold day at Grant Park.

Academy should have gone a goal up within the 1st minute of the game. Gary Weir managed to get round keeper McConnachie but his shot on goal was cleared off the line for a corner by some last ditch defending. The resulting corner was then cleared off the line a further two times before McConnachie managed to grab hold.

Academy have dominated most of the first half. In 25 minutes Gary Manson was taken down at the edge of the box for a free-kick which Gary Farquhar took and forced a good save from the Lossie keeper.

Lossie did have the ball in the net in the half-hour mark with their first real attack of the game, but it was chalked off for off-side.

Half time 0 - 0

Lossie have started the second half a lot better, and are now coming into the game. Don has made a few good saves, and his handling of the high ball has been sound.

Academy missed a great chance to take the lead in the 60th minute. Martin Gunn got straight through the defence and one-on-one with the keeper, but shot directly at him. The re-bound fell to Gary Weir but he fired his shot wide of target.

Both teams battled to the final whistle with end to end stuff but neither side could find a goal.

Final score 0 - 0
