Wed 10th Aug - Formartine 3 Broch 3 - AET Broch won on pens

Fraserburgh’s cup heroics continued as they started their Aberdeenshire Cup defence by beating Formartine on penalties after a 3-3 draw.

The home side took the lead twice in the regulation 90 minutes, but Mark Cowie’s men fought hard and forced the game to extra-time. Dean Cowie then scored for the Broch, however it was cancelled out by Paul Lawson’s free-kick. Ryan Cowie converted the decisive penalty as the visitors won the shootout 5-4.

United started the game strongly and Connor Gethins latched onto Scott Barbour’s through-ball, however he could only fire wide. That chance didn’t seem to get to the striker though, as he opened the scoring only seven minutes in. Barbour dispossessed Marc Dickson and sent a floating cross into the back post, where Gethins was positioned to divert his header into the net.

Fraserburgh came into the game a lot more as it continued. On the brink of half-time the visitors levelled it up when captain Russell McBride headed home at the back post from a Graham Johnston corner.

The hosts were the better team in the early stages of the second period. Within minutes of kick-off, United put their noses in front again, as Graeme Rodger volleyed home a Neil McVitie cross into the bottom left corner of the net.

Fraserburgh showed their fighting mentality as the Formartine goal only seemed to make them step up their game. Mid-way through the second half Paul Campbell unleashed a thunderous shot into the top right corner of the net to again put the visitors on level terms.

The Broch struck first in extra-time when Dean Cowie got on the end of a knock-back from Campbell to hit a low drive past defenders, but more importantly into the back of the net.

That certainly didn’t faze the home side because just four minutes later, Lawson’s deflected free-kick beat Broch keeper Paul Leask, which was enough to force extra-time.

The first six penalties were converted, including a spot-kick from Fraserburgh goalie Leask. Lawson stepped up to take Formartine’s fourth, but it was a poor penalty which Leask saved easily. All the following takers scored which left Ryan Cowie the chance to win the tie. He rifled his penalty into the bottom right corner; United keeper Andy Reid had no chance.

This win for Fraserburgh is the start of their defence of the trophy and they will visit Buckie Thistle in the next round. The Broch also won last season's Aberdeenshire Shield.
