Highland Football League weekend review: 26th April 2014


In the days early kick off, Inverurie Locos knew that just one point from their game against Forres Mechanics would be enough to cement a fantastic 2nd place in a hard fought league campaign. Locos took an early lead but the Cancans struck back with two goals from Stuart Soane. When it look like the visitors might end their season with a victory, Dean Donaldson grabbed a stoppage time leveller giving Locos the point they needed with a game to spare.

Nairn County ended their campaign with a 2-1 win away to Formartine which put them on to 75 points, level with Locos but with an inferior goal difference. Meanwhile Connor Gethins went level on 41 goals with Neil Gauld, who will aim to add to his tally before the end of the season.

Champions Brora Rangers will finish the campaign unbeaten on the road after a 1-0 win away to Turriff United in Ross Jack’s 1st match in charge, a winner from Andrew Greig proved to be the difference.

Ten-man Cove Rangers produced late drama to turn around a 2-1 deficit and defeat Clachnacuddin. Clark Bain’s free-kick was decisive, after Connor Scully’s double, with Clach netting through Martin Callum and Kyle Whyte. Scott Graham missed the chance to net from the spot, after Alan Redford had been sent-off.

Scott Barbour has found himself a fair share of goals for the Broch this season and he was a helping hand once again for Kris Hunter’s side as his 4 goals was enough for Fraserburgh to come out on top against Strathspey Thistle.

What a debut 17 year old Rory Davidson had for Deveronvale, just 30 seconds after coming on with time running out he made sure Vale went back along the A98 with all 3 points with a 1-0 win in the local derby.

Rothes thought they had salvaged a point when Jack Presly made it 2-2 against Wick Academy after 90 minutes. However Alan Farquhar struck the winner for the Scorries four minutes into injury-time.
