Buckie Thistle came from a goal down to do the double over Huntly this season with a 4-1 win at Christie Park.
Huntly got themselves in front after a combination of errors from the visitors lead to an opener. Greg Sim’s goal kick was missed by Shaun Carroll and went out for a throw-in on the left flank. Blair Johnston got the ball back from the throw and his deep cross into the back post was missed by the opposing defence as Adam McNamee prodded in his second of the season.
With just over thirty second of the second half gone, the ball was worked in by Christopher Angus and Kevin Fraser finished for his 13th goal of the campaign.
Buckie went ahead just after the hour mark when former Huntly forward Andrew Low gathered the ball after a defensive lapse and drilled the ball low into the far corner.
Huntly were reduced to ten men when former Buckie defender Darren Wood received a second yellow card following a foul on Christopher Angus inside the box. The Buckie top scorer got up following the challenge to convert the spot kick.
The Jags rounded off the scoring with two minutes to go when a free kick from the right was partially blocked by substitute Michael Clark and Iain Macrae fired high into the net after his initial header was blocked.
Buckie would also find themselves down to ten men when Stuart Taylor was shown a straight red for kicking out at Neale Davidson in stoppage time.
