Saturday 27th August - Cove 2 Fraserburgh 2

There was late drama at Christie Park as the Broch fought back to claim a point against Cove, despite missing two penalties.

The hosts took a two-goal advantage going into the break, with strikes from Blair Yule and Connor Scully and looked heavily in control. 

With only 10 minutes to go Greg Buchan reduced the deficit for the visitors. Late on Fraserburgh snatched the equaliser through Graham Johnston.

The home side started well and took the lead early on through Yule, after great link-up play between him and forward Mitchel Megginson allowed the midfielder space inside the area to tuck a shot past keeper Paul Leask.

Midway through the first half Scully doubled the Aberdeen side’s lead when he spotted Leask off his line and chipped him from 25 yards out.

The visitors were then given an opportunity to get back in the game after referee Thomas Shaw pointed to the spot for a handball from Cove’s Darryn Kelly. However, McKenzie saved low to his left to deny Grant Noble from the spot-kick.

Both teams came out after the interval completely differently with the Broch now having most of the play.

Early on in the half Fraserburgh were awarded another penalty. However, McKenzie saved Dean Cowie’s kick that was struck straight down the middle.

With 10 minutes to go the visitors were given a life-line when Marc Lawrence played an inch-perfect through-ball which Buchan got on the end of and struck a shot past McKenzie.

Only a few minutes after the goal McKenzie pulled off a great save to deny Lawrence from close range.

Fraserburgh completed their comeback three minutes into added time when a long ball was missed by the Cove defenders which allowed Johnston to slot home the equaliser.
