Nairn County 5 Huntly 0

Goals from Conor Gethins and Sam Urquhart saw Nairn County move up to ninth position with their fifth straight win over Huntly.

Les Fridge was without defender Sean Webb as defenders Michael Morrison and Martin MacDonald returned to the starting eleven alongside Sam Urquhart who had featured in the last two matches as a sub. Huntly made one change to their side which lost in Inverness two weeks earlier, Alexander Thoirs was offshore and there was a return for David Christie in defence who featured for the first time since September 27th while Russell Guild, Vilius Makaravičius, Mark Gray Sam McKenzie and Craig Dorrat all missed out for the second game in succession.

Nairn County got off to a good start through a controversial goal in the third minute. Conor Gethins looked offside as he received the ball in behind the Huntly defence and he ran on before chipping a shot over Fraser Hobday from outside the area. Huntly Assistant Manager Steven Dolan was given a ticking off from Referee Graham Fraser after he felt there should’ve been a flag from assistant referee Gary Falconer when Gethins received the ball.

The visitors came close to levelling six minutes later, a long throw from Callum Dunbar was launched into the box and Gary Davidson was denied by a point blank stop from Calum Antell. Paul MacLeod got in a block right after but Ian Cruickshank followed up the chance he saw a shot come back off the crossbar.

County doubled their lead midway through the half, a move down the left saw Alan Pollock play the ball into the back post and Sam Urquhart was on hand to head home his first goal in five games.

Urquhart had a further chance three minutes later following but Hobday got down low to hold. Some last ditch defending from Glenn Main prevented Huntly from getting back into the game when he got to the ball ahead of Callum Dunbar to head the ball over the bar.

Nobody picked up Gethins as he got into the Huntly penalty area and the County top scorer saw a shot come off the bar and into the hands of Hobday. Ian Cruickshank tried his luck from distance and his attempt took a nick off a Nairn defender on the way through and it forced Antell to dive to his left to gather.

Fraser Hobday was the busier of the two goalkeepers as the first half drew to a close keeping out Gethins in a one on one situation while the teenager pulled off a good fingertip save to divert a Kyle Wilkie shot over the bar.

Half-Time: Nairn County 2 Huntly 0

Huntly started the second half well as Callum Dunbar headed over from a Neale Davidson corner kick.

Three goals in a seven minute spell killed off the game. Wayne Mackintosh broke on the right flank and his cross was missed by the opposition back four and dropped for Conor Gethins to net with a low finish.

 

A quick break on the counter ended in a fourth goal as Sam Urquhart added his second with a drive into the bottom corner. Urquhart completed his hat-trick in the 71st minute when Huntly failed to deal with a corner and the former Elgin forward reacted quickest to fire in his tenth of the campaign.
