Sat 14th March - Inverurie Locos 1 Buckie Th. 2

Buckie Thistle subjected Inverurie Locos to their second home defeat in four days as they earned a well deserved victory at Harlaw Park. First half goals from Kevin Fraser and Christopher Angus put the game beyond doubt for Buckie, with John Maitland scoring a late long range consolation.

An early warning from former Locos man Andy Low set Buckie's tone for the match as he raced from the right flank to see his eventual effort skim over the crossbar. Inverurie were to respond minutes later, although Gordon Forsyth could've done better to get on the end of a Leyden corner at the back post.

It took just 15 minutes for Buckie to break the deadlock with Andy Low providing the assist. Coming from a free kick on the edge of the box, Low delivered a low curling pass for an unmarked Kevin Fraser to nip in at the near post and poke the ball into the net.

Albeit a tame response, Locos registers their first effort on target through a well executed set piece attempt from Jordan Leyden which saw Matthew McGinley stretching to pluck the ball from the top corner.

As the half hour mark approached, Buckie doubled their lead with a swift counterattack that saw a long ball from defence completely open Inverurie up and allow Christopher Angus to advance down the left flank before taking the ball towards goal. As Andy Reid moved off his line, Angus cooly placed his shot across the keeper and into the far corner from 15 yards.

The opening 15 minutes of the second half passed without incident, until Inverurie began to pin Buckie into their own half. Increasing the pressure, Locos finally began to string opportunities together, with David Ross coming close with a shanked effort inside the box that spun just wide of the far post.

As the final 10 minutes approached, Locos continued to threaten but were unable to find the killer touch required. Jamie Michie came within millimetres of pulling a goal back for Inverurie as he fought his way past defenders before shooting high over McGinley, only to see his shot come back off the under side of the cross bar.

With the game all but over, John Maitland gave the Locos some consolation as he wrapped up the match with a speculate 25 year low effort, which took the Buckie defence by surprise as it snaked in past the stretching McGinley.
