Sat 11th April - Turriff Utd 2 Forres 0

Turriff Utd ended their home League campaign on a high and have two more games to play before concentrating on their Aberdeenshire Shield Final meeting with Fraserburgh on 25th April. Meanwhile for Forres Mechanics the absence of key players proved too much as they found it hard to keep their hungry opponents at bay.

It was a very quiet opening as both sides looked to master the blustery conditions. In 10 minutes, Gary McGowan beat the offside trap but blasted over, one of six balls hitting the Turra burn and keeping the Committee members busy!

The home side were playing the ball well on the deck, but the final pass was letting them down on a couple of occasions. The Moray side’s first serious chance was a good one, Simon Allan scooping in a ball from the right and ex-Buckie forward Fraser Forbes meeting the ball on the half volley at the back post but aiming his effort over the crossbar.

Stuart Knight saved well from Andy MaCaskill, then McGowan found space on the right corner of the box, but his right foot shot went wide. There was a blow in 36 minutes when Nick Gray had to be helped off after a hefty challenge, with Craig MacAskill his replacement.

Forres had the next opportunity, Stuart Soane turning inside the home box and forcing his shot off Artjoms Kuznecovs and on to the roof of the net for a corner kick.

After the interval Stephen Fraser had to make a clever clearance from an Aaron McKenna square ball and Jamie Beagrie just failed to connect with the resultant corner. Turriff were turning the screw now, Andy MacAskill playing the perfect ball to McGowan right in front of goal but the ball was cleared.

In 56 minutes it was Jamie Beagrie doing the business with a great strike into the net off the inside of Knight’s right post, after his initial right foot drive crashed back from the other side of the woodwork, the deadlock broken at last.

The second placed team were desperate for more goals, MacAskill’s shot was  tipped over by Knight, then the visitors keeper also had to save at the feet of McGowan who was latching on to  the rebound.

Midway through the half the much travelled McGowan showed why he has been voted Supporters Player of the Year. Unbelievably managing to claw a ball back that was running towards the bye line, the number 11 had the audacity to tease and torment the visiting defenders before cleverly poking the ball into the corner of the net.

The Can Cans made a valiant attempt to get back into the game, Kevin Main saving from Lee Fraser and Stuart Soane seeing a header land on the roof of the net, but there was never going to be a way back.
