Acks vs Staxigoe Utd (1-2)

Alan Larnach scores equaliser

Murray Coghill fouls Martin Banks in last minute

Celebrations after Alan Larnach scores winner in last minute from free kick
Acks lost 2-1 to Staxigoe Utd at the Dammies last night in dramatic style. Free kick specialist Alan Larnach smacked a last minute free kick from 20 yards into the top left hand corner past stand in keeper Craig Trueman (who got finger tips to it).

Acks took the lead in first half through Murray Mackintosh, but Alan Larnach equalised by a free kick from an acute angle that deceived an injured Gordon Clark. Ref Johnny Munro had a busy night with plenty of end to end action and a few yellows being flashed.

Highland Amateur Cup - Halkirk v Lochinver (1-4)

Lochinver beat Halkirk 4-1 in the Highland Amateur cup today at Halkirk's Recreation Park.  Halkirk had a few missing and Andrew Bremner getting injured during the warm up made matters a lot worse. Michael Bremner scored a penalty after 3 mins, but Lochinver scored two breakaway goals in the first half, the only chances they had. Halkirk had 2 other chances in the half but Dylan MacKenzie saved well.

Halkirk had all the pressure but only really threatened the goal 2 or 3 times. Lochinver scored another breakaway goal mid-way through the 2nd half to knock the stuffing out of Halkirk. Lochinver scored from a corner with a couple of minutes left.
