Halkirk Utd v Alness Utd (5-6)

Ian Mackay scores 1st goal for Halkirk's comeback

Ross Macadie scores 4th

Scott MacGruer misjudges a cross/shot and ball sails in for 5th

Halkirk's 5th goal

Halkirk Utd were presented before the game vs Alness Utd, with their new strips by Anthony Kevill of the Ulbster Arms Hotel.

Playing with a strong wind behind them, Alness were 3 up after 15 mins and 4 up at half-time. The wind dropped for the 2nd half and Alness scored another 2 just after half-time. Halkirk scored one back and then Alness had a player sent off.

Alness collapsed after that and Halkirk scored their 5th in injury time. This was just after hitting the bar and having a shot cleared off the line, so they nearly earned a sensational draw and one of the biggest comebacks ever.
