Sat 17 Dec - Broch 2 Cove 2

The Fraserburgh curse continued for Cove as they were unable to defeat their rivals for the seventh game in a row.

A late Ryan Cowie free-kick was enough to earn a point for the Broch after a thoroughly entertaining game at Bellslea.

The home side broke the deadlock early on through Gary Harris, however it was cancelled out within minutes by Connor Scully.

Cove took the lead before the break, although wasn't enough to win the game as Cowie’s late free-kick was enough for the Broch to pick up a point.

Only three minutes into the game home captain Ryan Christie's long ball was met by a wayward header by defender Darryn Kelly which allowed Harris to nip in behind and slot a shot under Stuart McKenzie from a fairly tight angle.

Cove didn't let the goal get to them and within minutes they were level.

Blair Yule ran half of the pitch before setting up Scully on the edge of the box to get the equaliser for the visitors.

Cove started to dominate the match and almost took the lead mid-way though the half, however Paul Leask saved well down to his right to deny Mitchel Megginson.

Megginson then caught the Broch defenders off guard and put the ball through the legs of Leask to put the reigning champions on track for the three points.

Cove had with the best chances early on in the second half.

Leask had to react quickly to close down Jonny Smith which gave the ball to Megginson on the edge of the box, but he fired over.

Youngster Aidan Combe came close to giving the home side the equaliser, as he danced past a couple of defenders before firing across goal but no one got on the end of it.

The visitors were outraged with 15 minutes left. Yule hit a shot off both posts. Cove felt that the ball had crossed the line before hitting the second post, however nothing was given.

Broch manager Mark Cowie brought on youngster Calum Reid and he made an immediate impact by winning a free-kick 25 yards out. Cowie fired the set-piece high into the right corner to draw the sides level late on.

In added time the visitors really should have taken the spoils, as Scully had an effort from point-blank range saved superbly by Leask.

With the last kick of the ball Smith’s free-kick was touched onto the post by Leask to earn a point for the Broch.
