Formartine manager Kris Hunter triumphed against his former club thanks to a hat-trick from Graeme Rodger and a tap-in at the far post from defender Shane Jamieson.

Within the opening three minutes Paul Leask was forced into action after Scott Barbour beat the offside trap. However, he couldn’t beat the Broch keeper even after two attempts.

The home side certainly started the better of the two teams and their pressure paid off mid-way through the first half. Barbour received the ball after a poor clearance from Stuart Taylor which allowed him to float the ball into the back post area and Rodger arrived to open the scoring.

Formartine had most of the possession however couldn’t turn it into goals in the opening period. The closest either side came to another goal before the break was a Graham Johnston free-kick that was missed by everyone and narrowly went past the upright.

In the opening minutes of the second half Formartine doubled their lead through an unlikely source. Defender Jamieson directed Stuart Anderson’s effort into the net to firmly put the home side in the driving seat.

The visitors had a good 10-minute period after the second goal however Rodger then hit a thunderbolt from 30-yards out to beat Leask, which almost single handily killed off the game.

The home side put the finishing touch to the result with four minutes remaining. Rodger tapped the ball home from close range after Callum Dingwall cut it back to get the midfielder his second hat-trick of his playing career.

Next up for Formartine is Aberdeenshire Cup holders Buckie Thistle, meanwhile Fraserburgh will host Clach.
