Sat 5th Sept – Turriff 4-1 Lossiemouth

Turriff’s victory over Lossiemouth put them top of the table.

However this was overshadowed by an injury to stand-in captain Stuart Cumming, who broke his leg and was taken away in the back of an ambulance.

Cumming’s afternoon should have been great as he had the honour of having the armband due to Cameron Bowden getting injured in the warm-up. But this wasn’t the case.

A double from Nicholas Gray and goal apiece from Gary McGowan and Craig MacAskill secured the win for the hosts, despite Lossie getting one back courtesy of Scott Miller in the second half.

The match itself was played in front of a lively crowd, which included lots of bubbly and enthusiastic women on Ladies Day at The Haughs.

Turriff threatened first with Gray smashing a shot just wide of the target. The opener came in the first minute when McGowan cut inside and struck the ball into the box from left-hand side. Dramatically, his delivery went into the back of the net, despite it looking more like a cross.

It took only five more minutes for the second goal to arrive. Andrew MacAskill swung in a corner from the right-hand side and an unmarked Gray punished the Lossie defence for failing to mark him by heading it home.

At the other end Kevin Flett controlled the ball well and fired it long to Ross Archibald, but the danger was quickly cleared.

With 15 minutes on the clock Stuart Cumming stayed on the ground after a 50/50 challenge then play was stopped and he was placed on a stretcher. His injury looked very painful with him having to lay there for 30 minutes until an ambulance came to take him to the hospital. Cumming got huge applause from the crowd as he was carried off the pitch.

Soon after play resumed with Lewis Davidson crossing the ball into Gray who was patiently waiting at the back post, though his header went into the side netting.

Minutes later the home side got a third goal as McGowan stormed through the travelling team’s defence and his shot was saved. But the ball finally fell to sub Craig MacAskill who was composed enough to slot his effort into the net.

Not long after the MacAskill brothers combined brilliantly with Craig whipping in a perfect cross for Andrew, who volleyed it narrowly over the bar.

In the 28th minute Gray timed his run into the box to get on the end of a long ball and managed to outmuscle a defender, so he could hit a sweet shot low into the corner of the net to bag his second and Turriff’s fourth goal of the game.

Just after the break Lossie manager Charlie Charlesworth brought on Aaron Hamilton and new signing Connor MacAuley from Elgin City for the second half, which brought loads of energy to the team and their passing improved.

The first real chance of this half went to Andrew MacAskill, who let fly with a blitzing strike which looked to be heading for the top corner but it sailed just wide.

Soon after Aaron McKenna skilfully darted down the field and was unlucky to see his powerful shot strike off a post.

Minutes later, McKenna again showed his excellent creative play as he cut inside from the right flank to pass the ball to Gray but he blazed a shot over the crossbar.

The next chance fell to former Aberdeen striker Darren Mackie, as fellow sub Allen McKenzie crossed the ball into Mackie’s feet and he turned and hit a powerful strike which went narrowly wide.

In the 76th minute Lossie got a goal back. It started with Anthony Ross making a nice tackle to steal the ball off McKenzie. Ross passed to Hamilton and the ball fell to Scott Miller who slipped a shot into the net.

The final piece of action was a penalty claim for the visitors when MacAauley appeared to have been pushed over, but it wasn’t given by referee David Watt.
