Thurso Acks vs Halkirk (2-2)

Paul MacKay is congratulated on his wonder strike

Thurso Acks and Halkirk battled out a 2-2 draw in perfect conditions at the Dammies. Russell Bain put Halkirk in the lead before half-time. Kyle Innes equalised early in the 2nd half.

Straight from the resulting kick off, the ball was directly passed back to Paul MacKay and he blasted the ball around 55 to 60 yards over the keeper's head and into the back of the net. He was 8-10 yards inside his own half when he hit it. There was stunned disbelief from the Acks players and bench and the 40-50 fans. It reminded me of a young David Beckham when he scored from inside his own half for Manchester United in the late 1990s.

Kyle Innes was on sparkling form and he equalised for the 2nd time. Both teams had chances but failed to score another.
