Buckie Thistle 2 Strathspey Thistle 2

Strathspey did well to secure a 2-2 draw in their match against the home side Buckie Thistle.

The match started off fast with Buckie shouting for a penalty in the first five minutes of the match. Jags forward Andrej Kleczkowski seemed to be taken out by keeper Kyle Robertson but the referee waved away the appeals.

Strathspey’s defence got off to a shaky start when failure to clear the ball lead to Chris Angus missing a clear-cut chance 17 minutes in to the match.

Only a minute later the same problem arose, Strathspey’s defence couldn't get rid of the ball which was near enough on the goal-line. Buckie midfielder Chris Angus took the chance and put the ball in the back of the net.

Buckie then increased their lead 28 minutes in as Chris Angus netted another. A ball curled in from Iain Macrae saw the forward touching it down well on his chest and placing the ball past the keeper.

Just before half-time Strathspey were able to get a goal back as Martin Groat put his corner to the front post and Connor Macaulay jumped high to head it into the right side of the goal past Kevin Main.

Half time: Buckie 2 Strathspey 1

The second half began with Kevin Main getting a ball full force to the face due to poor defending from the Jags.

Halfway through the half Strathspey finally equalised as an advantage was played by the referee from Chris Hegarty’s hand-ball 20 yards out and Connor Aubrey finished it past Kevin Main with relative ease.

The last couple of minutes in the game saw big chances at each end, as Main Made himself big and saved a one-on-one, then at the Strathspey end centre-half Jack Maley got one off the line, securing his team a share of the spoils.
