Staxigoe Utd vs Wick Groats (2-2) 14/6/19

A very competitive and highly charged game between Staxigoe Utd and Wick Groats. United took the lead early in the first half. Groats equalised midway through the 2nd half and took the lead with a hotly disputed penalty. Was it deliberate handball or not? Grant Macnab was sent off for two quick yellow cards and United immediately equalised. 2-2 final score.
