Golspie Sutherland 2 V Wick Academy 3 - at Dudgeon Park, Brora

Old head Farquhar rescues Scorries from possible shock to set up semi meeting with ICT

With two draws so far in District 1, the winners in this game knew they would be through to the latter stages and it was Academy who seized the initiative in only 8 minutes.

A cross cum shot by Gary Manson from the left deceived the Golspie defence and the keeper to sneak in. There was panic in the home defence soon after, Blair Duncan having to clear away

The non league side tried to counter attack but were missing the cutting edge needed to get the better of a side which has scored nine in three games

It was a total turnaround in the closing minutes of the half, when following a second successive corner, Tommy Campbell blasted into the net, 41 minutes gone. .

There was now extra vigour about the underdogs' play and when Stewart Ross was adjudged to have pushed Aaron Smith, Darren Pullen converted the spot kick

Wick levelled three minutes after the break, Manson's cross headflicked on by Henstridge and veteran Gary Farquhar knocking the ball home from 12 yards

Farquhar made it 3-2 midway through the half when he latched onto a loose ball following a melee in the box and that was to end a brave fight by Golspie who had battled well over the 90 minutes but it is the Scorries who go through, and they will be the only SHFL representatives left in the competition

Final Score: Golspie 2 Wick 3
