It was a great night for this North cup quarter final, Clach made a few changes from Sat. defeat at Lossie.
Wick only made 2 changes, Pickles was left out, MacAdie & Weir in Manson onto the bench
There was very little goalmouth action in the first half. Sam Mackay chipped the ball just over after 15 mins 10 mins later McCarthy in the Wick goal took to long to clear the ball with the Clach forward right on top of him.5 mins from half time Finnis got booked for a comment to the ref' Clach did have the last shot of the first half when Fitzpatrick had a 30 yard run out of defence but his shot was straight at McCarthy.
Into the 2 nd half and Wick were slightly on top and took the lead through Harrison who scored from a very acute angle but Wick deserved the lead
Clach changed their team taking on 2 front men Morrison and Andy Fraser with Davidson & Fitzpatrick departing. The Lillie's centre back McGurk was unlucky to get booked after 80 mins but with 5 mins to go the same player was very unlucky not to bring Clach level with a terrific backward header which McCarthy tipped round the post for a corner.
We are now into injury time and Clach get a dramatic equaliser when Penwright manages to force the ball into the net.
After this real drama we are now 93 mins played and its a PENALTY. To Wick the best footballer on the park Sam Mackay steps up and leathers the penalty into the roof of the net to put Wick into the semi - final. The last 10 mins were terrific to watch as play swung from end to end.
